Rackets: Babolat Drive Z 110


Originally published on: 26/02/10 16:42

Hard sell: This is a racket that will give beginners extra power and comfort too, says the French manufacturer. The Cortex System will help dampen high frequency vibrations and its Smart Grip is aimed at players who use a continental grip to help give them increased comfort and a more secure hold.

Tennishead says: All in all, this was popular with all our testers. It plays well, looks the business and has a relatively friendly price tag. It has heaps of power, but with control too, and is one of the few rackets out there to have a handle specifically shaped to fit more comfortably in the hands of players who use a continental grip.
