Babolat has kept the specifications on the 2012 Pure Drive Plus virtually the same as the previous generation Pure Drive Team, Pure Drive Cortex, and Pure Drive GT. That is, the Pure Drive GT Plus remains the definitive tweener (between powerful/controlled) frame. 100 sq. in. head, 27.5 inch length, 11.30 ounce strung weight, and 321 swingweight provide an excellent balance of power, control, and added reach for additional pop.

Babolat Pure Drive Plus
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.
