http://bit.ly/2vSiXvZ With its "best of class" combination of speed, power and spin, the Pure Drive is one of the most popular and versatile racquets ever made. Although it is weighted for intermediate players (11.2 ounces), this racquet's outstanding playability and ease of use lend it an appeal that cuts across ability levels and stroke styles. For the 2017 version of the Pure Drive, Babolat retools the string bed with FSI Power Technology, which includes diamond shaped grommet holes and wider string spacing. The result is a noticeable boost in power and spin potential. Babolat also updates its Cortex dampening system with a viscoelastic rubber used in the space industry. The upshot is better dampening, more comfort and a decidedly more muted feel than past versions of the Pure Drive. On groundstrokes this version of the Pure Drive offers the same explosive speed we've come to expect from this iconic racquet. Aggressive players who like to scramble and crank winners on the run should love this stick. The wider string spacing not only provides big spin potential, but it sends the ball on a higher trajectory, resulting in both easier depth and a heavier ball. At net the Pure Drive checks all the right boxes. It offers quick handling and big put-away power, but it also feels quite solid for its weight class. Aggressive servers will find enough power and spin to force weak replies. Babolat has made some impressive changes to the Pure Drive. Although some players may have to adjust to the slightly more muted feel, there will also be a lot of players who cannot resist this racquet's heavy ball potential.
http://www.Top-Tennis-Training.com Babolat Project #One7 Tennis Racket Review by Top Tennis Training coaches Simon Konov and Alex Slabinsky. The racket feels like a combination between the strike and drive frames and it looks like that was the idea behind the design, This racket will be released in the coming months so look out for it.

http://bit.ly/TWBabolat With the Pure Strike 16x19 Babolat has once again created a modern player’s racquet with universal appeal - call it a softer, more controlled Pure Drive with outstanding feel, quick handling and impressive targeting. In addition to its square & elliptical Hybrid Frame Construction, this update comes with Babolat’s new FSI Power technology, which widens the spacing between the upper crosses for a juicer, more spin-friendly ride. In contrast to the 2014 version, Babolat has thickened the beam in parts of the shaft and head to enhance power and stability. On court these features amount to a comfortably firm response that is as lively as it is precise. From the baseline the Strike has the same easy acceleration and “out of the box” playability as the Pure Drive, but it feels a tad friendlier on the tendons. Spin comes easy, and big swings find their mark without much fuss. Although the widened beam and more open string spacing definitely provide extra pop over the previous generation, the power never feels overwhelming. At net the Strike 16x19 feels fast and accurate, with decent stability for a sub 12 ounce racquet. Touch artists should have enough feel to kill the pace and drop the ball maliciously short. As with the previous generation, this racquet’s combination of power, precision and spin should translate into some very aggressive serving. With this solid update to the Pure Stike 16x19 Babolat checks all the right boxes. A Must demo for any player who wants a zippy, great feeling player’s racquet with very user-friendly levels of power, control and spin.

Thank you for watching my review of the #ProjectOne7 prototype racket from Babolat. Now revealed to be the update to the Pure Strike line of Babolat rackets I assume the model I am playing is similar if not identical to the 16x19 model set to release very soon. Strung at 58 lbs with Babolat Pure Hurricane 16 gauge poly strings. Let me know if you have any more questions in the comments below and subscribe for more tennis content.
