Babolat Pure Drive 107 Tennis Racquet

Grip Size
Fans of oversized racquets should love this update to Babolat’s Pure Drive 107. At around 10.7 ounces strung, this racquet is suitable for rising beginners, but it should also appeal to the intermediate player who wants something light and powerful. This racquet also features a slightly extended length (27.2"), which supplies a little extra momentum for adding some pop to your shots. For the 2018 edition, Babolat adds a more head light balance, making this a faster, more explosive feeling racquet (think easier power and spin). This update features FSI Power Technology, which includes diamond shaped grommet holes and wider string spacing for a nice boost in power and spin. This model also gets a revised Cortex dampening system, which features a specialized rubber to soften the feel at impact. Like the 2015 version it replaces, the Pure Drive 107 combines a generous sweetspot with decent stability, making it feel a tad more arm-friendly than the average Pure Drive. From the baseline, a medium length stroke provides good depth, with big power available on full swings. The Pure Drive 107 also has an open 16x19 string pattern, which supplies the required bite for bringing the ball down sharply with spin. The forgiving headsize and speedy feel make this a very user-friendly racquet at net. Block volleys feel solid, and there is no struggle required to execute deep, piercing replies. Finally, the slightly extended length provides a subtle but noticeable boost in power on serves. All in all, the 2018 Pure Drive 107 is well-suited to beginner and intermediate players looking for a powerful and maneuverable racquet that does not skimp on comfort. Manufacturer SKU: 101346-136
