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://bit.ly/WilsonRacsTW Wilson adds another chapter to the legendary Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph - a racquet specially engineered for Roger Federer, the man who helped design it. Although it has the same target specs and outstanding playability as the original RF 97, Wilson and Federer have created an update for the ages. From its sleek black matte finish to the small silhouette of Federer and laser engraved graphics, the RF 97 is Wilson's most scrupulously detailed frame. Even the racquet’s texture has been redesigned to match Federer’s preference - a nuance that makes for easier adjustments as the racquet is spun and repositioned in response to incoming heat. Like its predecessor, this update deploys Wilson’s timeless Pro Staff formula, including a braided graphite layup, headlight balance, thin beam and Perimeter Weighting System. Toss in a thin leather grip and the result is a truly classic feel. Unlike the iconic 6.0 85, this re-engineered Pro Staff has a slightly wider, more angular beam, giving it a decidedly more powerful delivery than most traditional player's racquets. At 12.6 ounces strung, Federer’s Pro Staff gives you massive plow-through and tour level stability, allowing you to redirect heavy pace with impressive ease. Our playtest team noted a high level of precision on full cuts, with some genuine put-away power when the mass was fully deployed. Thanks to its headlight balance (9 points!), the RF 97 feels surprisingly fast for its 12 plus ounces - a feature that will give topspin players the kind of whippy and explosive acceleration that makes for big spin. On volleys, the RF 97 is not only unfazed by heavy pace, but it possesses enough feel to drop the ball on a dime. As one of the of the most finely crafted player's racquets Wilson has built, this heavily anticipated follow- up to the original RF 97 is destined to become an instant classic.
http://bit.ly/2ysBgqC Babolat updates the Pure Strike 100, a racquet that packs an impressive combination of spin, control and feel into a very maneuverable package. Perfectly weighted for intermediates, this version of the Strike 100 retains the Hybrid Frame Construction (consisting of square and elliptical beam shapes) while also thickening key locations of the beam to enhance power, stability and precision. This model also comes with FSI Power technology which features wider spacing between the upper cross strings for easier access to spin and pace. On groundstrokes the Strike 100 swings easier and faster than the Pure Strike 16x19 but still manages to offer an impressive level of control and feel. Thanks to a slight weight increase over the previous generation, this stick has an easier time redirecting pace or driving the ball through the court. There's also plenty of spin to be had thanks to the grippy open string pattern and easy acceleration. On volleys the maneuverable weight and headlight balance should definitely help boost your reaction time. Advanced players looking to beef up the stability and plow through should have no problem customizing this stick to taste. All in all this version of the Pure Strike looks like a great option for the player who wants to combine the speed, spin and precision of a modern players racquet with some good old fashion control and feel.
