Babolat Pure Drive Lite Tennis Racquet DEMO
Description
Experience the Dark Side of lightweight power with a new 2012 update to the legendary Babolat Pure Drive Lite, now in a striking futuristic black graphic. The new Pure Drive Lite 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.

Midwest Sports only ships Babolat products to domestic addresses in the U.S. and U.S. Territories.

String Maintenance: Each DEMO racquet will arrive to the customer with a high quality Multifilament type string. The DEMO racquet will be strung at the middle tension of the manufactures recommended tension range.

Delivered to your door!: UPS delivery takes 2-3 days to most areas. You will receive an e-mail the minute they are shipped with a tracking number. Use them for 7 days from the day you receive them. Example: Receive them on Monday, keep them until the next Monday. To return to Midwest Sports you may drop off at any UPS store or follow instructions on return label for alternate drop-off options. Simply place the label included with the demos on the box. Midwest Sports will be notified by UPS when the racquets are picked up. Please Note: Due to possible demo maintenance (re-stringing, re-gripping) prior to being shipped out, demo orders are not guaranteed to ship in the same time frame as new product orders. Occasional delays are possible, but are typically no longer than 1-2 days.

Forget to Return: In order for everyone to take advantage of the demo program we ask you return the demos after 7 days. Late fees on racquets not returned within the 7 day period are $2.00 per day per racquet, up to 7 days.

Babolat has kept the specifications on the new Pure Drive Lite in between the Pure Drive GT and the Drive Z-Lite in terms of weight. The Pure Drive Lite remains a great option for a player not quite ready for the weight of the Pure Drive, but requires the playability provided by its tweener (between powerful/controlled) design. 100 sq. in. head, 10.60 ounce strung weight, and 293 swingweight provide an excellent balance of power, control, and maneuverability.

Great maneuverability and pop for a light racket. I also prefer a good multi like NXT Tour for max feel and power. Serving little harder due to lack of weight in head. But still a serious contender for me.

Demoed this last week & really liked it. It's a half ounce lighter & only a point & a half headlight more than my Speed Elite. Had good pop on my ground strokes & was able to volley well. Because it was strung to demo, 16 gauge Gamma TNT, had to adjust my serve a bit, but was able hit some hard flat serves. However, it was a bit tougher to generate spin on my slice & kick serves. I figure if I had it strung with my normal string of choice, those would come around. I have a couple more I'd like to demo before purchasing one, but this is definitely one in the running.
