Babolat has kept the specifications on the 2012 Pure Drive Plus virtually the same as the previous generation Pure Drive Team, Pure Drive Cortex, and Pure Drive GT. That is, the Pure Drive GT Plus remains the definitive tweener (between powerful/controlled) frame. 100 sq. in. head, 27.5 inch length, 11.30 ounce strung weight, and 321 swingweight provide an excellent balance of power, control, and added reach for additional pop.
