Babolat updates the Pure Drive Light with FSI Technology, a feature that lifts the sweet spot and tightens the spaces between the upper cross strings in order to provide players with a more responsive hitting zone. Like its predecessor, this version of the Pure Drive Lite is great for the player who wants the power, precision, and spin of the standard Pure Drive but in a lighter more manageable racket. From the baseline, the Pure Drive Lite accelerates through contact with incredible ease, a fact that should allow strong beginners and intermediate players to crank up the pace. Factor in the grippy 16×19 string pattern, and this racket becomes the perfect weapon for the skillful topspin player. At net the Pure Drive Lite feels wonderfully quick, accurate, and lively, three features that also come in handy when adding pace and spin to serves. All in all, this impressive update to the Pure Drive Lite, with its redesigned sweet spot, is just what the doctor ordered for those who are seeking a very user-friendly path to power and spin.
