Babolat Drive G

Woofer Grommet Technology:

The Woofer system was first introduced in 1999. This was the first and most effective frame-string link system. It allows for a 25 per cent longer ball to string contact time which aids in creating greater control, and a sensation of comfort to the player while the racket is in contact with the ball. Along with this, the use of Frame String Interaction Technology goes hand-in-hand with the Woofer system to bring more feel to the player with each strike of the ball, as well as a tighter stringing pattern in the sweet spot of the area.

Cortex Dampening System:

The racket transmits useful information to the player as the range is designed with the Cortex Dampening System. Added to this, the handle design brings that information closer to the player’s hand for perfect control on every hit. This technology has been a vital way for Babolat to help their rackets minimize vibrations throughout the duration of play.

Final Thoughts:

The Babolat Drive G Series of tennis rackets is the best option for beginner to intermediate level players. The rackets offer the player greater control and power. This design of racquet is specifically engineered towards the regular tennis player that is looking for value and premium performance.

It is perfect for competitive junior-level players, Game players, as well as, high-level recreational players.

In saying this, this particular range of rackets would be perfect for both intermediate and beginner players that are wanting to improve their skills at a fast pace.
