Formerly known as the Pure Drive Roddick, named after retired ATP player Andy Roddick, then the Pure Drive Tour from 2015 on, the new Pure Drive Tour continues to provide players with a beefier version of the venerable Pure Drive. The trademark Pure Drive power and spin gets mixed with some added plow through thanks to the extra weight. As with the other Pure Drives, Babolat updates the Tour version with FSI technology in the stringbed, resulting in easy power and depth as well as increased comfort. Additionally, the Cortex dampening system got a revamp with the addition of a thin rubber material that absorbs impact vibrations and provides a direct feel. From the beginning of the playtest our TW playtesters were rewarded with the easy power and crisp feel the Pure Drive Tour is known for. Our playtesters could easily hit deep in the court and play aggressively from the baseline. All of that firepower made for a simple transition to the net to punch volleys away. Our playtesters all raved about the easy, free power they were able to generate on their serves, which resulted in additional free points. However, the free power proved to be a bit of a hinderance when it came to returns. If they weren't careful some playtesters would overhit their returns, and they needed to add extra spin to get their shots dropping inside the lines. Overall, the Babolat Pure Drive Tour proved perfect for players seeking a little extra stability and plow through to go with the exceptional power and spin of the standard Pure Drive.
