Babolat has kept the specifications on the new Pure Drive Lite French in between the Pure Drive GT and the Drive Z-Lite in terms of weight. The Pure Drive Lite French Open remains a great option for a player not quite ready for the weight of the Pure Drive French Open, but requires the playability provided by its tweener (between powerful/controlled) design. 100 sq. in. head, 10.60 ounce strung weight, and 293 swingweight provide an excellent balance of power, control, and maneuverability.
