PURE DRIVE 2017 / 2018 RELEASE DATE
If you are looking for a new racket check out our list of Top 5 Tennis Rackets 2017 updated in July. It is unlikely for Babolat to release 2 Racquets in one year so I’m sure that they will announce the racket at the US Open 2017 and present them to us by giving them to all the professionals currently playing Babolat Pure Drive rackets. The racket will of course be called the Babolat Pure Drive 2018.
Make sure to visit this site again, we will post new photos of the new Pure Drive 2018 as soon as possible below!
PURE DRIVE 2017 / 2018 SPECS
Of course these thoughts are only speculations but Babolat is known for only changing tiny details on their rackets. Very often the changes from an older to a newer version consists of making the playstyle of a particular racket more extrem. This means that Babolat likes to give for example the Pure Aero even more spin while the Pure Drive gets even more power for fast and heavy hitters.
Most likely they stick with the standart versions like every year. Many players all over the world stated that they wish for a different paint job of their Pure Drive. The old blue was too boring for many. If true, the new Babolat Pure Drive 2017 looks pretty “chill” but feature the very bold “Drive”. The Pure Drive has always been the racket with the most power when not giving much power. Perfect for very good players but extremely dangerous and difficult for new players.
However there is nothing known yet about any stats from the new Pure Drive 2017 / 2018. They’ll most likely stick with the old powerhouse, add a new technology, some marketing on it and it’s done!
