• This racquet is recommended to tennis beginner and intermediate with stronger arm.
  • The weight ( with string ) is 301g is classified as mid-weight racquet.
  • Check the specification printed on the racquet, make sure it is this one.
  • The name should be exactly * Pure Drive Team 2021 *, any one word different ( e.g. 2021 becomes 2018, or there is one more word such as VS/Plus on the name ) indicating that is another racquet.
  • Better go to racquet shop and get a feeling of the racquet, make sure comfortable with it before deciding to buy.

Alternatives :

  • In case this racquet is a bit heavy, another model called Babolat Pure Drive Lite or Babolat Aero Drive Lite could be considered. They are from the same family but lighter.
  • Or Babolat not available, I recommend other brands Dunlop (cheaper but very good) and Yonex (very popular recently). Could choose the similar specification in particular several items :
    • strung weight less than 300g,
    • length must be 27 inches,
    • head light, Head Size 100 in sq ( exactly 100 )

Grip Size ( Very Important ) :

  • L1

Recommended String and tension :

  • Using Polyester String ( e.g. Tecnifibre Blackcode 17 or Solinco Tour Bite Soft 17 ) with tension 50 lb or even 1-2 lb less.
