Technologies

Woofer: Provides 25% more contact time between the ball and strings. Eliminates string lock-up and increases sweet spot size - improving forgiveness during off-center shots and absorbing shock. Delivers extra power and more control, with a comfortable feel.

Cortex System: A vibration dampening system that actively links the handle and frame of the racquet, providing 25% more contact between the ball and strings, while filtering and dampening harmful vibrations that interfere with racquet feel. Low vibration frequencies are preserved, so feedback is not reduced.

Graphite / Tungsten: A hybrid material containing braided carbon fibers and tungsten filaments is threaded throughout the entire racquet, improving performance, giving 10% additional energy recovery for even more power, and granting players unmatched control and feel.

If you enjoyed the Pure Drive Roddick, you will love

If you enjoyed the Pure Drive Roddick, you will love the Pure Drive Tour! I think Pure Drive Roddick players will seamlessly transition into this offering from Babolat. The levels of power, maneuverability, stability and plow through are very similar. This one may even feel more comfortable -- although comfort is always subjective

I could switch between the Pure Drive Tour and any

I could switch between the Pure Drive Tour and any of the previous Roddick versions without missing a beat. I can't imagine anyone not finding this to be an easy and worthwhile update. Head's various incarnations of the Extreme Pro come close, but they've never offered as much stability and plow through. The ProKennex Ki Q5 is also another racquet to consider as it offers a similar blend of power, control, spin and comfort.
