Babolat has kept the specifications on the 2013 Pure Drive French Open virtually the same as the previous generation Pure Drive Team, Pure Drive Cortex, and Pure Drive GT. That is, the Pure Drive French Open remains the definitive tweener (between powerful/controlled) frame. 100 sq. in. head, 11.30 ounce strung weight, and 308 swingweight provide an excellent balance of power, control, and maneuverability. Expect improved feel and solid performance from all points on the court with the latest Pure Drive French Open!

It tremendously improved my game. I tried several rackets from different brands but ended up in frustration until I demoed and finally purchased this one. Great for the price and I really like the cosmetics. I'm planning to buy another racket of this kind as a back-up.
Feels just like the regular Pure Drive but with a sweet color scheme. Even my tennis pro who strung it for me said he was jealous of my racquet, especially after we added the black Babolat strings. Gives me plenty of pop and control on my ground strokes while being easy to maneuver at the net for volleys. I also managed 5 aces immediately on my tennis pro my first time using it, which was a huge bonus!
