Best Racquet ever
I love love this racquet. This is my second one. Love the pro hurricane strings. Gave me that extra pop on my ground strokes
I first tested this racquet some time ago and it was a close call, but I bought a Prince 105 EXO3 for its mobility, particularly at the net. The Pure Drive 107, strung with the free Bab. M7 16g (60) seems to have more power and stability, valuable for baseline and off-the-surface shots. Like the Prince, it handles well on serves and basic strokes, though it vibrates more and seems to be a bit less precise in placement. So I'll probably use both racquets in my doubles games.
Upgrading to a bigger racquet
I've been playing with a Babolat pure storm team for the last few years and was beginning to notice I've been having a lot of frame shots. So I decided to get a bigger racquet. The Babolat pure drive 107 was a big improvement for my game. A lot less frame shots and a boost in power to boot. I would recommmend this racquet to anyone looking for an oversize frame.
So far I am loving this racket. Giving me more control than previous racket. Great service as well.
Great Comfortable Racquet
I tested the Babolat Pure Drive 107 racquet out and it felt the best out of the several 2014 racquets I had tried. I got 3 racquets immediately and after about a year later I am getting a forth one just in case the model gets discontinued. Great balance for an oversized racquet. It took me about 5-6 months to really get use to it. It doesn't have as much control as my Pro Staff 95s which I played with for many years, but the power, comfort, weight, and size makes this a better racquet for me now. Great overall racquet, I can't imagine playing with anything else available currently.
Great power and control. My serve has never been better, plus my elbow does not bother anymore. Buying a second one.
Overall feel is solid with comfort in the grip. Pleased with the shape of string area. Ideal for the recreational and competitive player. Includes a zippered cover.
Yes, this racquet is the best! Been playing with it (or its previous versions) for at least 5 years. Get yourself some RPM Blast 17 strings to go with it.
Great feel and power
I saw this racquet while I was in Florida on vacation in February and after handling it for few minutes knew that I had to get it. After two weeks of playing with it, it's my new fav. Power, good control and my serve has never been better. Also love the fact that my tennis elbow and rotator cuff have had zero problems even after long matches. This racquet is a must have and I'm ordering a second one and ditching my Prince.
Power, control, and feel
I switched to this racquet after more than 10 years with the Prince Thunderstick. My arm had been hurting and this racquet immediately felt better, plus is it has very good power, solid control, and imparts excellent spin. I love its maneuverability and bought a second one from Midwest Sports.
power with control
