Babolat adds another chapter to the game's most iconic modern player's racquet. As with previous versions of the Pure Drive, this update keeps the same easy learning curve and explosive spec profile that has attracted generations of players. Updated with Babolat's new HTR System, the Pure Drive's graphite layup has been reengineered for higher torsional rigidity, resulting in more efficient energy transfer to the ball. To help with vibration dampening, Babolat has devoted more space in the shaft to SWX Pure Feel, a thin and extremely flexible viscoelastic rubber that sits between the racquet's carbon layers. Additional features include FSI Power Technology, which optimizes the grommet system and string spacing for higher levels of power and spin.
On court, this racquet's explosive acceleration and spin-friendly targeting make it a dangerous weapon from the baseline. It also packs impressive all-court mobility, making it great for cranking winners on the run or charging into the front court and finishing points at net. Although not the most stable member in the Pure Dive franchise, this update won't disappoint in stock form, especially if you place a premium on quick handling. With incremental tweaks to the feel, the Pure Drive continues to be one of the best options for those who want a light and explosive player's racquet.
For 2019 Babolat makes some incremental tweaks to the Pure Aero Plus while keeping the same basic formula that made this stick such an obvious choice for aggressive ball strikers. Although it shares many features with the standard Pure Aero, this racquet comes with an extra half inch of length, making it more challenging to swing but giving it noticeably more pop on groundies and serves. For this version, Babolat has updated its Cortex technology with a more advanced dampening compound along with repositioning it to a more optimal location higher in the racquet. The result is a slightly softer feel at impact. The Pure Aero Plus also features FSI Spin technology, which utilizes wider string spacing for extra bite along with oblong grommets at 6 and 12 o'clock to maximize string movement and snapback (think spin). On groundies the Pure Aero Plus is dangerous in the hands of an aggressive baseliner. It rewards big swings with heavy, spin-loaded balls that drop hard and explode off the court. Boasting a heavier dynamic weight than the standard version, this stick also does a better job absorbing and redirecting the pace of big hitters. On serve, this racquet's extended length provides big power, with plenty of spin for adding nasty action on slices and kickers. The Pure Aero Plus also provides plenty of options on service returns where it is stable enough to block big first serves while also being precise enough on full swings to punish second serves. Ultimately, the Pure Aero Plus remains an obvious choice for big hitters looking to go on offense.
Specializing in spin and power, the Babolat Pure Aero is one of the game's most legendary racquets. At 11.2 ounces strung, this stick is ideal for hard charging intermediate players, but it should also work very well for the advanced ball striker who is looking to go on offense. For this update, Babolat lowers the flex a tad, giving this notoriously stiff stick a slightly more controlled and arm-friendly response. Babolat has also moved the Cortex dampening material to the head at 3 & 9 o'clock, resulting in a slightly softer feel at impact. But make no mistake: this is still a firm, modern and lively weapon. The signature technology, called FSI Spin, utilizes wider string spacing for extra bite along with oblong grommets at 6 and 12 o'clock to maximize string movement and snapback. Like the player who endorses this racquet (Rafael Nadal), the Pure Aero feels fast and explosive from the baseline. The speedy response and grippy stringbed provide the recipe for hitting heavy spin-loaded balls that drop hard, and the higher trajectory response makes it easy to keep the ball deep. The mid 320 swingweight draws a nice compromise between speed and stability, and the quick handling makes this a great stick for those who like chasing down balls or ripping winners on the run. At net the Pure Aero plays great on fast exchanges, and there is enough power to finish points with a bang. Ultimately, The Pure Aero remains a very obvious choice for aggressive baseliners looking to control the action with pace and spin.
With the 3rd Generation of the Pure Strike Team, Babolat delivers a more dampened feel but keeps the outstanding playability of the previous generation. As the lightest and fastest member of the Pure Strike family, this 10.7 ounce racquet is ideal for the intermediate player who wants controllable power, easy access to spin and great feel. Like the previous generation, it has a hybrid frame construction (called Control Frame Technology), which blends the control and feel of square beam with the speed and dynamism of a modern elliptical beam. This racquet also has FSI Power technology which features wider spacing between the upper cross strings for easier access to spin and pace. New to this frame is C2 Pure Feel, a material technology that combines cortex with a uniquely flexible viscoelastic rubber at 3/9 o'clock for added comfort and dwell time. On groundstrokes, the Pure Strike Team feels crisp, spin-friendly and accurate, with very predictable results on full swings. It's also quite fast, making it great for scrambling on defense or cranking winners on the run. The maneuverability continues on volleys and service returns where the Pure Strike Team glides into position with remarkable ease. As with the heavier Pure Strike models, the Team has great touch for hitting malicious droppers or working the ball into tight spaces. Ultimately, this is a great option for those who want a light and user-friendly performance racquet with easy targeting from all areas of the court.
Intermediate players looking for an explosive racquet with big spin and plenty of pop should like this update to the Pure Aero Team. At 10.6 ounces strung and boasting a swingweight below 310 (RDC), this racquet accelerates quicker than the standard Pure Aero. As a result, improving players will find it easier to generate the stroke speed required to generate effective pace and spin. Like the previous generation, this racquet has FSI Spin Technology, which features wider spacing between the crosses for a tighter grip on the ball. Additionally Babolat has widened the grommet holes at 12 and 6 o'clock, giving the strings a greater range of movement so as to increase snapback and spin. Babolat has also moved the Cortex dampening material to the head at 3 & 9 o'clock, resulting in a slightly softer feel at impact. From the baseline, the Pure Aero Team feels fast, firm and accurate. Although it lacks the stability of the standard Pure Aero, this racquet's whippy acceleration and spin-friendly response will give you the ability to hit high arching balls that drop hard and explode off the court. At net, this racquet moves into position with remarkable ease, making it great for reaction volleys or springing into action when opportunity knocks. There's also plenty of power for finishing points. On service returns, the Pure Aero Team comes around fast, making it easy to position the racquet against a hard first serve or attack a second serve. Ultimately, with this update to the Pure Aero Team, Babolat has succeeded in creating a point and shoot weapon for intermediate players looking to ratchet-up the pace and spin. The fact that it feels a tad more comfortable than previous generations is a nice bonus.
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.
Introducing the lightest member of the Pure Aero family. This racquet offers the spin-friendly precision of the standard Pure Aero but in a lighter, more user-friendly package. At 10.1 ounces strung, the Pure Aero Lite is ideal for the intermediate player who wants a fast swinging racquet with easy targeting on full swings. It should also work for the dedicated beginner who wants a racquet that will reward continued improvement. Like the previous generation, the Pure Aero Lite comes with FSI Spin Technology, which features wider spacing between the crosses (for added bite) along with larger grommet holes at 6 and 12 o'clock (for increased string movement and a more powerful "snapback"). The result is a racquet that puts a tight grip on the ball before snapping it out of the stringbed loaded with spin. As with the other members of the Pure Aero family, Babolat has moved the Cortex dampening material to the head at 3 & 9 o'clock, resulting in a slightly softer feel at impact. This model also benefits from an Aeromodular Beam, which helps reduce wind drag. From the baseline, the Pure Aero Lite not only feels comfortably firm at impact, but it also delivers easy spin and exceptional targeting on full swings. Although it is not as stable as the heavier Pure Aero models, this racquet's even balance gives it impressive stability for its weight class. It also packs the kind of maneuverability that improving players need for generating effective pace and spin. As with the previous generation, this racquet's light weight is an asset at net where it plays great on fast exchanges. The speedy feel also helps on service returns where the Pure Aero Lite comes around very fast when the pressure is on. Ultimately, with its user-friendly responsiveness, the Pure Aero Lite remains an obvious choice for rising players who want easy access to pace and spin.

This racquet is best suited for juniors age 11 and up who are looking to transition into adult-sized frames, but aren't quite ready for the extra length and weight that come with the standard-length.

Players looking for power, precision and spin should love the Boost S, one of the better values in Babolat's racquet line. At 10.4 ounces this racquet is light enough for both beginners and rising juniors, but it should also work well for intermediate adults looking for explosive acceleration. With its aerodynamic beam, whippy feel and open 16x19 string pattern, the Boost S offers all the ingredients needed for generating effective spin. The 102 square inch head is forgiving, lively and surprisingly precise. With their time-tested Woofer grommet system, Babolat adds some extra comfort and power to the stringbed - a welcomed feature considering the firm (and powerful) beam. From the baseline this user-friendly racquet moves through the air with remarkable ease. The crisp and accurate response will give you the confidence to swing for power. At net the Boost S is never late the party. It moves into position quickly and provides a comfortably firm platform for blocking the ball into the open court.

Players looking for a high level of all-around playability should give this user-friendly racquet a serious look. The fact that it comes pre-strung is a nice bonus!
