The Curated Take

Nicolas Carrero, Tennis Expert

By the Expert Community

It’s easy to see why the Pure Drive is such a popular racquet. It is very user friendly for a wide range of abilities and gives players a big boost of power and spin—which makes it feel like one is a level better than they are. For advanced players it can be a bit tough to harness that power and it doesn't offer the best touch around the net, but it makes hitting groundstrokes so much fun that it is easy to recommend for a wide variety of players.

Ideal for
  • Explosive power
  • User friendly
  • Go from defense to offense in an instant
Not ideal for
  • Somewhat harsh on the arm
  • Easy to overhit for aggressive players

It™s no wonder the Pure Drive is one of most popular and versatile racquets in the world.

EXPLOSIVITY

You wish you had an extra pop when things get though, here comes explosivity. When the intensity is high you can rely on your racquet to do exactly what you are longing for: produce a killing shot, even on off centered hit.

I have had my eye on the Babolat Pure Drive for years. The Pure Drive is arguably the most popular racket in the world and has been for a few years now. Proven by the racket's price not going down here in late 2023, even though it's from 2021! A racket that is a popular choice for all levels of... Read more
Ideal for
  • Easy power from the baseline, the ball flies off the racket with minimal effort.
  • Serving feels very nice with the Pure Drive. Nice spin and power combination. Ball comes heavy off the racket.
  • Slicing feels fantastic with this racket. The power the racket brings combined with the nice spin gives off elite slicing capabilities.
Not ideal for
  • Racket is a bit stiffer than I'm used to, which helps in the power department but hurts with the maneuverability.

What a gem!
5 /5
Allison is fantastic! She is super knowledgeable, friendly, and gave great suggestions. Allison took the time to understand what I was looking for, my likes/dislikes and then gave recommendations based on really listening to my needs. And she was spot on! Her recommendations were so great, I had trouble deciding but she was there again, helping me to narrow down to final choices. I have used Allison a few times and wouldn’t hesitate to use her again. It was by sheer coincidence I got connected to Allison, who actually lives fairly close to me, and besides a knowledgeable expert for my tennis needs, I feel like I’ve gained a friend. She checks in periodically and I love that personal touch.

I had no idea this service existed, and after a couple clicks starting a racket search I landed on Curated with Russell as my expert helper. I was very surprised to get an immediate response to my question and then repeated follow up. He gave me detailed recommendations and made it so simple for me to choose, even by helping me with my shopping cart. This was an incredibly helpful service with a very friendly, extremely knowledgeable expert to guide my choice. And the best part is that the price of the racket was a great deal! Very pleased with this service, and particularly Russell's help. Will definitely recommend to others! Thanks!
