GT Technology: Graphite Tungsten Technology is a hybrid material containing braided carbon fibers and tungsten filaments throughout the entire racquet. This customized performance booster improves racquet performance based on the concentration of Tungsten fibers at various strategic parts of the frame. The main benefit is increased power and versatility. A value added aspect of GT technology is that the added concentration of Tungsten in the head of the racquet strengthens the frame (up to 26% more than the previous Pure Drive) to reduce torque and increase precision.

Cortex Active Technology: Thanks to its new construction and CDS (Cortex Dampening System) interface, the latest edition of Babolat’s active Cortex technology ensures seamless transmission of the most essential information directly to the player’s hand for an incomparable feel and a master’s control of each and every hit.

Woofer Technology: The first and most efficient system which makes the frame and strings interact when striking the ball: 25% longer ball/string contact. Better control, more comfort.

Elliptic Geometry: Optimal design to guarantee the best torsion resistance: +20% stiffer compared to a traditional beam. Better maneuverability with more power.

            I have been using this racquet for almost 3 weeks and never been more happy with power and the control. I'm using the babolat pro hurricane 17g strung at 54lbs. Great feel and power

              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!

              Add some volkl cyclone 16/17 and you're on your way. The power and spin is as good as it gets. This new version also has much more feel at the net.
