Experience the Dark Side of player-oriented power with a new 2012 update to the legendary Babolat Pure Drive Roddick Plus, now in a striking futuristic black graphic. The new Pure Drive Roddick Plus is 0.5 in. longer and is updated with a new Cortex Dampening Interface for even better feel. Only those frequencies that enhance feel are permitted to pass through the Cortex filter. Maintains the use of GT (Graphite Tungsten) which adds a hybrid of braided carbon fibers and tungsten filaments throughout the entire racquet.

Babolat has kept the specifications on the new Pure Drive Roddick Plus virtually the same as the previous generation Pure Drive Roddick Cortex + and Pure Drive Roddick GT +. Great player-oriented tweener (between powerful/controlled) frame for those who prefer a Pure Drive with a heavier heft and longer length for more pop. 100 sq. in. head, 11.80 ounce strung weight, and 326 swingweight provide an excellent balance of power and control. Meant to more closely replicate the weight of Andy's racquet, the Pure Drive Roddick + provides a little more stiffness and power, provided you are able to handle the additional weight and length.
