I would give the racquet a five star rating but I'm not as the racquet is not for me. It's got a LOT of power that is difficult to manage. On ground strokes, I have to really give my shots a lot of snap to generate top spin to keep the ball in the court. Unless the ball is struck correctly, it will go long or high. I usually have an outstanding backhand and forehand slice where I can really cause it to cut low to the ground. Not so much with this racquet. I had to literally hit it perfectly or it would float. On serves, if I hit it right, I can get some nice power and even control (on my second serve). If there is one area where it really helped my game it was with my serve. Given my trouble controlling the ball with groundstrokes, I was surprised as to how well I struck the ball on my serves. The racquet definitely swings heavy, too. It's unwieldly at times -- especially around the net -- if you are not in a good position for a volley. My overall judgment? If you are a player who loves a classic racquet feel, this racquet is not for you. It has tons of power. So, if you're a player who loves power and can deal with hitting it long occasionally, while controlling it most of the time, this racquet may be for you. (I had it strung with RPM Blast at 53 pounds but that was not enough to give it more control. Perhaps a higher string poundage, like 58 would do the trick, but as it is now, it doesn't have the control I would like.) If you can control the power, though, the Babolat Pure Drive Plus 2021 may be for you. It IS a nice racquet. Bablolat makes good products. It's an attractive racquet to look at and for someone who has can control the power -- especially on groundstrokes -- this may be the racquet for you to use. But it's not for me as I prefer something more classical feeling.

The racket has a very nice quality feel. Balanced weight distribution and allows an easy swing through on shots. I do like the blue color as well but I have enjoyed many previous Babolat rackets as well. This one takes the best design award. In short, nice work Babolat!
