The Babolat Pure Drive 107 takes all the best features of the Pure Drive family and brings them to a wider audience thanks to its oversized head. This racquet is a great choice for anyone seeking power and a larger sweetspot. Although this latest version’s specs remain in line with the previous version, this Pure Drive features updated Cortex Technology. This updated technology helps filter out negative vibrations, leaving a more pure feel on every hit.

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.

  • Q:

    What is the stiffness level on this racquet? Too stiff gives me tennis elbow.
    Asked on 6/29/2012 by Tennis Guy from Key West, Fl

    • A:

      Hi, the flex (or stiffness) on the racquet is rated at Flex (RDC) 76 which is very high (meaning it is a VERY stiff racquet).
      If you were referring to the tension on the strings, it is rated at 55-62 Lbs which is also very high.

      A:

      This racquet has a flex rating of 76 which is definitely on the stiff side.

      A:

      The Babolat Pure Drive 107 GT is probably best suited for players between 3.0 and 4.0 (intermediate to advanced-intermediate). Keep in mind that this is just a guideline—it is very tough to assign a broad skill level to a racquet. In the end, the racquet that feels and plays best for a particular player is the racquet they should use, regardless of that racquet’s “assigned” skill level.
