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

Great tennis racquet. Good power and open string pattern allows for a lot of spin. By far the best racquet I've played with.

Great Racquet

We bought this for my son and he loves it. He said it helps put top spin on the ball and gives more power to his shots.

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.

Overall Great

I'm 16 and I bought this racquet for my high school season and It only took a good week to really get comfortable with it. You really get to appreciate the extra length when it comes to serving, the added height with my 5'2" frame really helped and allowed for ease with overheads. Sometimes with my given height the racquet tends to scratch the court a little with the top but no real damage and holds up nice and firm. Babolat did great with this one.

powerful served

I bought this Racket for my son and he just can't think in other racket that he play before. I tested on my serve and I found that made my shot go on the box with not too much of the effort. I practice with him and this racket show a tremendous spin.
