Babolat Pure Drive Lite KILLER!

The Formula Lite Pentacore is a great option for the player who wants the unparalleled comfort and superior playability of the standard Formula Pentacore, but in a lighter, more user-friendly package. Beginner, intermediate and senior players will appreciate this racquet's quick handling and precise delivery.

Head size: 100sq"
Average Unstrung Weight: 275g
Unstrung Balance: 335mm
Unstrung Swing Weight: Approx, 271
String Pattern: 16x19
Stiffness (RDC): 62
Grip: Cushion
Rec. String Tension: 45lbs (+/- 10)
Beam Width: 20/27/24mm
Length: 27
Technology: Pentacore™

The light stationary weight (10.2 ounces strung) and even balance result in an ultra-light swing weight that makes racquet-head speed wonderfully fast, accurate and lively. Its open string pattern make it perfect for the budding junior player who is working on cranking up topspin.

Similar in specs to the popular Babolat Pure Drive Light in head size and shape, stationary weight, balance and beam width in specifications, but you’ll find when you put the Formula Penta Lite in motion you’ll feel much more power and control than the Pure Drive Light, and without the shock and vibration you feel from the wrist to the shoulder with the hollow Babolat Light.

Like the Formula Penta, the Lite’s solid-core Xenecore tubing in the hoop allows the flexible frame to bend back on ball contact but recover in a nanosecond to launch the ball like a slingshot with a mid-to-full swing, or cradle the ball for directional control on volleys. The result is a quantum leap in power with a smooth buttery feel that our play testers described as “hitting hard but feeling soft” with both the Lite and regular Formula Penta. Other bonuses are a larger sweet spot and best-in-industry stability.

The Formula Penta Lite feels and sounds instantly arm-friendly — you’ll hear a resonant “thunk” at first hit unlike the harsh “ping” of hollow racquets.

It won’t make you work to keep the ball deep in your opponent’s court. Spin comes easy with its open stringing pattern.

In short, the Formula Lite has a combination of "hits great/less filling."

Customer Reviews

Demo the Babolat Pure Drive Lite or the Pure Aero, along with Donnay's Formula Lite and the results will astound you. Review by Relieved
While the Babolat's have the market sewn up, this relatively unknown GEM outperforms either of them. Add to that the vastly superior comfort level I was greeted with & my history of elbow trouble and the choice was easy. While the Babolats do start out a few bucks cheaper, the generous discount for multiple racquet sales brought the price of my buying three of these, significantly below what it would have cost me to get 3 of the Babolats. The free 7 Racquet Bag?, simply the icing on the cake
All I can say is Bravo & Long live the NEW Donnay! (Posted on 1/20/2018)
