Player Benefits: Versatility - Stability

The Babolat Pure Drive 98 racquet is the latest model to arrive in the range. It will offer more control than other models thanks to its smaller headsize.
Very versatile, this 305g racquet is particularly stable at impact thanks to its 32.5cm balance. 
Relatively stiff (74 Ra), this racquet deforms little at impact for maximum energy return. The result? A powerful racquet that will allow you to generate heavy hits to win every point with panache.
The 630cm² headsize is smaller than other models in the line to provide more precision.
The 16x19 string pattern with FSI technology, is tighter to increase string responsiveness at ball impact, but will also guarantee extra power as well as the ability to print a nice spin.

Type of player :

Advanced level players looking for a versatile racquet for offensive play while maintaining control.

Technologies :

- HTR System: Greater torsional rigidity of the racquet to gain energy return and achieve more explosive shots.
- SWX Pure Feel: Babolat continues its partnership with SMAC (French aeronautical company) to provide more comfort and better game sensations thanks to the SMACWRAP material integrated into the heart of the racquet and which will disperse vibrations.
- FSI Power: The new string pattern combined with the diamond-shaped grommets increases the sweet spot for more power and easier centering of the ball.
- Elliptic Frame: The elliptical frame in the heart of the racquet optimizes torsional resistance for more stability, more control and more power.
