Racket Review: Babolat Pure Drive 110

We put the Babolat Pure Drive 110 to the test

The Babolat Pure Drive 110 was included in tennishead's 2017 racket reviews for players in the improver category and it doesn't disappoint.

The racket impressed our testers in the appearance stakes from the outset with the blue, black and white colour combination as both Katharine and Ali described it as ‘stylish’.

It’s an updated and lighter version with the aim of it being more forgiving for players. The 110 square inch head combined with the open string pattern allows players to generate spin on the ball where necessary.

Katharine said: “The racket really helped me get topspin particularly on my forehand as well as providing me with good, strong power.”

Ali disagreed in the power elements as she explained the power didn’t feel right for her and she didn’t feel comfortable with it. This racket is ideal for a player who is after more control than power in their game. 

Tennishead's 2017 improver racket reviews appear in the June edition of the tennishead digital magazine.  Download the tennishead magazine app for free to read the reviews in full.
