Babolat introduces the 2018 update to Babolat's Pure Drive Plus. Babolat's new updated version of the Pure Drive Plus affords a newly improved vibration dampening system known as Cortex Pure Feel. The new Cortex Pure Feel technology offers high-grade vibration dampening thanks to new material integrated into the graphite of the racquet. Expect pristine sound and a more direct feel during ball contact.

Like previous generations of the Pure Drive Plus, the racquet will keep its anti-twisting Elliptical Frame Shape which allows for ample power within the frame. Woofer technology is also integrated into the new 2018 frame. Babolat's Woofer technology allows strings to interact more with the ball upon impact, giving more stringbed snap-back resulting in added spin. Babolat updates their FSI technology, with wider spacing to go with diamond shape grommet holes. This will allow more forgiveness and additional power on each hit.

To go with the technology updates, Babolat gave the 2018 Pure Drive Plus a revamped paint scheme with a light blue and white look. Overall, the new 2018 model is a fantastic update to the Pure Drive racquet line, serving as a remarkably versatile frame -- perfect for competitors who are seeking that nice balance between power and feel. The Babolat Pure Drive Plus is the long body version of the Pure Drive with the 27.5-inch length.

For Optimal String Performance Babolat Recommends:

  • Durability: Babolat RPM Blast
  • Playability: Babolat Xcel

Cortex Pure Feel Technology

Babolat Cortex Pure Feel Technology

Babolat’s Cortex Pure Feel is powered by SMAC: better vibration dampening thanks to new material integrated in the graphite of the racquet that provides an incredible sound and more direct feel during the game.

FSI Technology

Babolat FSI Technology

Babolat created a higher sweetspot on the string bed for additional power and comfort in the hitting zone. Frame String Interaction technology is located in the hoop of the racquet, allowing the ball to stay on the stringbed 25% longer than traditional racquets.

GT Technology

Babolat GT Technology

Babolat’s GT technology was implemented to provide ideal stability at ball impact. With GT technology, the frame is strengthened which reduces the torque, allowing for great precision. The additional rigidity through GT technology provides ultimate control and additional power.

Elliptical Geometry

Babolat Elliptical Geometry

Babolat’s elliptical frame shape is designed specifically to eliminate any added weight, frame twisting or racquet bending.

Woofer System

Babolat Woofer System Technology

Babolat’s Woofer system is the first and most effective frame to string linking system. This technology allows for longer ball and string contact time, creating maximum comfort and greater control.

Evo Beam

Babolat Evo Beam

Unique frame thickness that gives the racquet less torque at ball contact, creating a livelier clean response

I'm a 4.5 player who has used the original pure drive for years. I decided to purchase the newest model. I love it as much, in fact it really is no different except for a new paint job and the grip is sized slightly bigger. I'm happy w my purchase but dont buy one expecting anything different. As always dealing w Midwest sports was excellent, my purchase was delivered in 2 days !

Power with control
