Best New Tennis Rackets 2013 for the Power Server and Power Baseline Player is the Blue and Black Babolat Pure Drive Roddick (+).
It’s a Graphite/Tungsten composite racket that weighs in at 11.1 oz, so it’s a real power monster on the court, and is best for making power shots from anywhere on the baseline, while still maintaining control.
It has a generous head size of 100 sq. in. and has a flexibility rating of 74.
If you just love the pure power of a heavier racket than you’ll probably want to stick with the Babolat Pure Drive Roddick 2012 model. But if your looking for the same power as the 2012 Babolat Pure Drive Roddick with increased feel and control, you’ll find it in the 2013 (+) version.
Babolat has decreased the weight by .80 oz and that lightness directly translates into better feel and more control in a racket that can sometimes be too powerful.
So for the power baseline player who uses control and spin in their shots, they will quickly fall in Love with this new racket from Babolat for 2013.
The Babolat Pure Drive Roddick (+) 2013 is designed mainly for intermediate to advanced players.
