For players in search of a powerful racquet that is also light and comfortable to swing, Babolat has the answer with the Drive Lite Purple and White. The 100 square inch head size provides a large sweet spot and ample forgiveness on off-center shots. The Woofer grommet system ensures additional power and string response on contact. The low, 9.5oz (strung) weight makes this frame extremely fast through contact and capable of tremendous racquet head speed. The nearly even balance adds a bit of stability to contact on ground strokes. Volleying is easy with this frame as its light weight makes it ultra maneuverable at the net. The 16x19 string pattern offers players the ability to use a variety of spin and control in their shots. The Cortex dampening system increases comfort by tuning out unwanted vibrations on contact with the ball. The Babolat Drive Lite Purple and White is a solid option for players who need a powerful frame in a lightweight and comfortable-to-use package. Juniors transitioning to an adult frame would be well-served to give this racquet a try.
