Players need to sustain power in any situation against every type of opponent. The new Pure Drive includes an optimized FSI Power string pattern and new diamond grommets to provide a larger sweet spot. The result is maximum power on every shot, even when off-centered. Babolat’s FSI Power gives players the necessary confidence to attempt everything on court, and more importantly, to perform at their highest level.
