Perfect combination of power and maneuverability. Enough heft to pack a punch on serves and groundstrokes, but still lightweight enough for smooth volleying.

The VS is the first Babolat I’ve owned. It feels both firm and responsive from the baseline. Some people have commented that they don’t like its net play, but I have not had problems maneuvering it quickly at the net.

I really like the ability to create spin and racquet speed. Overall I am happy with the VS. The smaller head does take some adjustment.

I liked the weight and balance of this racquet. Normally I play with a Pure Drive Tour but I fell in love with this racquet the first time I hit with it. I think that it had the Babolat Spiraltek strings in the demo. I am left handed with a strong forehand and love to rally from the baseline and hit winners. The only con that I can think of is that it is heavier at the net. I just adjusted and it was fine. One added benefit is that it the extra weight slowed my swing down just enough to consistently drop shots on the baseline. I love this racquet !

I play with the Pure Drive now and love it. But when I saw this and picked it up.... love at first swing! The feel is amazing. Solid volleys. And the control on the serve is outstanding. I didn’t think I’d spend $500 on new racquets but after playing with this... I bought my club demo set. I wouldn’t even let anyone else play with it. If you love the regular pure drive... give this a try!!
