Intermediate and advanced players looking for easy power and big spin should love the 2018 version of the Pure Drive Plus. At 27.5″ long, this racquet packs more of a punch than the standard length Pure Drive, making it dangerous in the hands of an aggressive baseliner. Babolat retools the stringbed with FSI Power Technology, which includes diamond shaped grommet holes and wider string spacing. The upshot is bigger power and more spin-potential. Babolat also updates its Cortex dampening system with a viscoelastic rubber material for a more muted and comfortable feel. The extended length makes this stick dangerous on serves where you’ll find huge power.
