      Comments about Babolat Pure Drive Roddick:

      The racquet improved my game immensely -- At least it felt that way :) I had Volkl Psycho Hybrid 17 strings. Not as much power as I had hoped, but wow, what spin, and many more balls stayed in and in play.

          I play about two hours, three times a week. This racquet has a great feel, and better precision and accuracy than my previous Wilson. Great product

                I used this racket in my tournament and did pretty good with it if you are looking for a lot of control and less power this isnt for you but if you want a mix of both this is great for it!
