Description
Experience the Dark Side of Power with a new 2012 update to the legendary Babolat Pure Drive, now in a striking futuristic black graphic. The new Pure Drive 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.

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 $15.00 for 1 racquet and $20 for 2-4 racquets. Shipping includes delivery to your door and return shipping back to Midwest Sports. Demo up to 4 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 manufacturers 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.

    Racket feels great when hitting from the baseline, formidable on serves, and very responsive on volleys. I like that it's not as stiff as the graphene speed pro (I demo'ed both the same day), and that overall has a configuration of weight and balance that happen to work for my game. Tip: take advantage of the demo program and if you like the racket you can get a discount towards a new one! totally awesome!

    Superb Racquet

    This racquet is the only racquet for players who have a complete game, can vary shots, speed, spin etc. It is the perfect weight and well balanced. I am seriously impressed by the way it plays and cannot imagine having another racquet.

    I needed another racket for a back up. This racket came within 3 days and I already had to use it when I broke another string. It was strung right to my specifications and I have won the last 3 matches playing with it.

    This is the third generation of this racquet i have used. It has an amazing combination of power and control , very forgiving of imperfectly hit balls, and, best of all, very easy on the arm

    Moved up from AeroPro Team to Pure Drive and have been playing with it for 4 months now. The biggest change was getting used to the heavier frame. Very powerful and solid racquet with excellent feel. Every stroke is more penetrating and good for all court game. I am rated at 4.0 and play with Babloat RMP blast 17G String at 58 LBS. Would highly recommend it to any player at or above 3.5 level who can handle 11+ Ounces weight.

    awesome racquet

    This is a great racquet. It feels great on ground strokes at the baseline, gives power to serves and is very responsive for volleying. A very solid racquet.

    Great purchase

    Moved up from the Youth Babolat to the Pure Drive. Took a bit to get used to a little different feel. It's a bit "tighter" than the older version. Lots more power, but still working on control and finesse with the different feel. Overall very pleased!

    Powerful Weapon

    This stick added a whole new level of power to my game. Groundstrokes, serves and volleys all seemed to have a little more pop with this frame. It is one of the stiffer frames on the market, so it can be a little harsh on mis-hits. With good form, this frame is a weapon.
