The Babolat Pure Drive Team (2018) is great for players that want an easy swinging racquet with easy access to power. The Team has a comfortable swingweight that comes through the air very quickly off both wings or on serve. At the heart of this racquet Babolat has put Cortex into the graphite composition for a consistent feel that dampens without leaving the player disconnected from the ball. FSI Power is a new string pattern that incorporates new diamond grommets that improve the sweetspot over the whole width of the racquet to maximize power. While this is a lighter version of the Babolat Pure Drive (2018) the elliptical frame shape offers high resistance to twisting and bending. Overall, the Babolat Pure Drive Team (2018) is powerful and light with excellent handling that make a perfect frame for a wide range of players.
