Babolat has kept the specifications on the new Pure Drive Roddick Plus virtually the same as the previous generation Pure Drive Roddick Cortex + and Pure Drive Roddick GT +. Great player-oriented tweener (between powerful/controlled) frame for those who prefer a Pure Drive with a heavier heft and longer length for more pop. 100 sq. in. head, 11.80 ounce strung weight, and 326 swingweight provide an excellent balance of power and control. Meant to more closely replicate the weight of Andy's racquet, the Pure Drive Roddick + provides a little more stiffness and power, provided you are able to handle the additional weight and length.

This is a great stick. This is the best serving racquet I have ever played with (kinda what you would expect from an Andy Roddick endorsed stick). In the past I have played various Prince and Wilson models but the Pure Drive Roddick plus blows them away on serve. It also provides excellent power and control on groundstrokes. The stiffness of the frame really let's you rip into shots and maintain control of the ball. 5 out of 5 stars!
