The Pure Drive seems to give a good combination of power and control. It is, however requiring more adjustment than I expected. While it has good balance, it seems heavier in the midsection, requiring me to be somewhat stronger with my hand and forearm. I am still tending to be “late” with my forehand down the line. But I am adjusting.

My daughter uses this racquet in Advanced level junior competitions. It's one of the most popular choices among her peers. It has plenty of power and control and has been working out well for her. Only thing that I want to complain is: I do her strings myself with a very basic drop-weight machine with two-point mount . It's kind of difficult to clamp the horizontal line at the top because it's so close to the frame that it almost gets underneath the mount. It's still doable. Just a tiny bit inconvenient.

Racket is very responsive and sweet spot seems larger than my last Babolat racket. I am around a 3.0 level bought the racket on a former WTA player recommendation. I would in turn recommend the racket!

The Pure Drive feels slightly heavier and stiffer than the Pure Strike, and the ball comes off the racquet with some explosiveness.

It is still a stiff frame and I found this edition to be quite muted.It was not fun. After 3 days,the elbow began to feel it.

Exactly as advertised. I have played with earlier versions and the feel has definitely been improved. Love it paired with Solinco Hyper-G.

Love this new version. Feels closer to the black 2012 model but even more solid. I like it even better than both 2012 and 2018 (did not like 2015) Power is even more effortless. Love the new metallic blue paint design as well. If you like Pure Drive, best one yet.

I love the touch, feel, and sound from the 2021 babolat drive on a crisp, clean shot! It is very forgiving with a large sweet spot too. Visually the racquet looks sleek and modern. The swing motion is similar to the 2018 Drive too. I love it!

Great power without sacrificing control. I had the racquet strung with Babolat RPM 16 at 52 and it’s perfect for spin and not too tough on the arm.

Exceptional feel and touch

I bought this new 2021 Drive model to take advantage of technical improvements to the 2018 Drive racquet I bought (slightly) used. I chose babolat addixxion strings at 55lbs (midpoint of recommended tension). The addixxion strings are arm friendly and have good touch. The new 2021 Drive sweet spot is large, but when hit true has a wonderful “babolat” sound. As with any racquet, different strings, tension, or use of hybrid strings, will accentuate power and control. My initial impression of this 2021 Drive is most favorable, I feel it has better touch and control, even on miss hits. I do try different strings at different tension to obtain better results. Midwest Sports quickly strung the racquet and the 2 day shipping got this racquet into my hands without much delay!
