Description

The all-new Babolat Pure Drive Lite has all of the same great technology, with a much lighter weight. A new construction featuring a Cortex Damping System interface highlights this year's newest Babolat models. With an open string pattern and decreased weight, power and spin capabilities are definitely there. The Cortex System optimizes the overall feel for the ball and gives every player the comfort level they want and need. Babolat Woofer technology is also in place to enhance control and sensation. For a player looking for the same punch as a Pure Drive without the weight, the 2012 New Babolat Pure Drive Lite is an excellent choice.

Note: This racquet comes with a cover

Pros - Great for volleys - Huge sweetspot - Cortex System that completely filters vibrations Cons - The frame is a bit on the lighter side, and hence need to take off speed to get control or the ball goes long

I love this racquet. It is nice and lite and easy to swing. It has a nice big sweet spot. I have tennis elbow so I changed from the Wilson to the Babolat Lite and I am glad I did. This racquet really absorbs the vibration and has allowed me to play more often. I recommend this racquet.

Im an adult who just began taking tennis lessons, and this is my 1st racquet I ever bought. I chose it as it had the best feel to it after trying it out at the Club Med Tennis Academy FL and again via the Tennis Express Demo program, where I compared it against the AeroPro and Pure Drive Andy Roddick. So far so good!

This racquet swings easy for me - quite manageable. I am not a hard hitter - I place my shots. I think I need to lower my string tension a tad though. Im happy with it otherwise.
