Babolat Pure Drive GT Tennis Racket 2012 - NEW
This is the latest version of one of Babolat's bestselling rackets over the last ten years. The Pure Drive GT has a fantastic amount of power and still retains a greater level of playability and control than other frames.
Fantastic for club players all the way through to performance.
Babolat's new Pure Drive GT has Graphite Tungsten around the frame to offer more power and greater stability on any off centre hits.The Pure Drive has a higher concentration of Tungsten in the head to reduce torque and give greater precision. This racket has Babolat's Cortex system in the handle to reduce vibration.
The Cortex filters out vibrations caused when the ball impacts the strings.
Woofer is simply a more effectively shaped grommet. Instead of the grommet being flat and flush to the frame, it is actually arched and curved. This makes the frame and the strings interact more when the ball impacts the racket as the strings have a great ability to move as they’re not pulled tight against the racket. This leads to an improved ‘trampoline effect’ on the strings, providing 25% more contact time between the ball and the strings on impact.
GT stands for Graphite Tungsten construction. This make up offers twice the stability of standard carbon. The concentration of tungsten fibers is different according to the racquet family.
