Like the Pure Drive Plus from before the New Pure Drive Plus offers a powerful stroke that still allows you to maintain control of the ball. By adding new technology to the racquet it is now more comfortable and consistent to use in matches. Having a new system for their grommets tehy have been able to increase the longevity of string life on the racquet. The added length to the racquet also allows for better reach helping you get there for those long balls.
The New Technology Babolat implemented on the new Pure Drive+ is FSI or Frame String Interaction. This gives a tighter string pattern on the sweet spot and implemented with the woofer system gives more feel to the players with each strike of the ball. This technology helps to consistently hit balls deep in the court and keep opponents behind the baseline.

I play tennis with friends.The sales person who attend me recommended this racket. I bought en 2006 a Babolat Pure Drive for my son and I used and like too much. So on July last year I bought in Miami one of these, but in May it broke.
