Babolat Drive 105 French Open Tennis Racquet
New for 2014, the Babolat Drive 105 French Open edition is features a sleek new white, green and red clay graphic inspired by Roland Garros. The racquet features Cortex Dampening System located in the two sides of the yoke. The innovative shape is designed to dampen the vibrations in order to bring to advanced players the best compromise between comfort and feel at ball impact. This powerful racquet is great for players looking for maximum feel to go along with optimal comfort.
Other than the addition of the Cortex filter (and a snazzy new Roland Garros inspired paint scheme) Babolat has kept the specifications on this new version of the Drive 105 French Open very similar to that of the Drive 105. The Babolat Drive 105 is geared to the intermediate to advanced player possessing a longer, faster swing, who will appreciate great playability to go along with maximum feel and optimal comfort.

I have been using the Babolat Drive 105 French Open edition for approximately 3 weeks. I am very impressed with the over all quality, control, stability and power that this racquet has to offer. The Babolat Drive 105 has incredible ground stroke control and great feel on volleys and touch shots. It is capable of producing an incredible amount of top spin for heavy hitters and remarkable slice shots for finesse players. It can also produce an enormous amount of power when driving the ball from the baseline area. Great feel on volleys and serve. I suggest experimenting with different string types to find what works and feels best for you. I recommend this racquet for recreational and tournament level players.
