The Pure Drive Tour Plus updates the Roddick Plus, the racket endorsed by Andy Roddick and inspired by his powerful game. Like its predecessor, this racket's extended length (69,8cm) and beefy swingweight (331 RDC) give big hitters the leverage and mass to crush the ball. New to this update is Babolat's FSI Technology, a feature that raises the sweetspot and tightens the space between the upper cross strings in order to provide a more responsive hitting area.
From the baseline the Tour Plus is not easily pushed around. Not only does it feel stable against heavy pace, the extended length and higher swingweight supply the momentum for hitting with penetrating depth. There's also more than enough spin potential to control the power and select ambitious targets. Another impressive aspect of the Tour Plus comes with serving. This racket's length, mass and lively precision make it perfect for those who like to hit big serves and rack up free points. Doubles players looking to turbocharge their serve & volley game should be able to do some serious damage with this stick. All in all this update to the Roddick Plus checks all the right boxes. A must demo for the player who wants an extended length racket that hits a very heavy ball.
