Babolat Pure Drive Plus Tennis Racquet DEMO RENTAL

Babolat Pure Drive Plus Tennis Racquet DEMO
Experience the Dark Side of Power with a new 2012 update to the legendary Babolat Pure Drive Plus, now in a striking futuristic black graphic. The half inch longer Pure Drive Plus features 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.

Demo Program Info
Thank you for your interest in Midwest Sports Tennis Outlet's Racquet Demo Program. Delivering the racquets you want to your doorstep. Fast and simple. The program is available anywhere in the continental United States.

Program Details

Cost: Demo cost is $9.00 per racquet. Shipping includes delivery to your door and return shipping back to Midwest Sports. Demo up to 3 racquets at a time. Our program ships anywhere in the continental U.S.

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. If the racquets are more than 7 days late, your credit card will be charged the full price of the racquets.

    This racket was great because it gave you control on the ball, power, and spin. With this racket it easier for me to hit deep shots, and it gave me more power on volleys. Overall a great racket

    Nice stick. Good power and control. Extra 1/2" doesn't seem like much, but feels powerful, also feels a little less maneuverable at net. Weird - may be mental. Great serves and overheads. Does a fair amount of the work for you, as if a bit wide bodied. Heard (don't know) it's weighted in head and handle, rather than head only or handle only or even through whole racquet. Not the lightest, but certainly not heavy - 11.0 oz. strung. Also compared Pure Drive Lite. Very maneuverable - super light - 10.0 oz. strung, but bangs around against hard balls. Weighting might help, e.g., in a taper (full tape toward top of head, taper toward handle) at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock, but didn't try. Between the two, Plus is clear winner for me. Tried demo because I really liked hitting with one belonging to another club player, so tried on demo - v. good, but not great as I remembered. Full price tag after couple years disappointing.
