Babolat tennis racket, Drive Z 118 2009
The powerful yet comfortable response of the Drive Z 118 makes it a perfect option for the beginning player. With a generous sweetspot, even shots hit off-center leave the racquet with solid pace and depth. Comfort remains impressive even when the pace and weight of shots pick up. From the baseline only a compact swing is required for deep hitting. The large headsize helps beginners make a clean contact and improve consistency. Babolat's Smart Grip provides improved contact with the handle thanks to its ergonomic shape. At net the racquet offers a nice combination of mobility and stability. The racquet is light at only 9.9oz strung yet the head heavy balance means there's still plenty of mass behind the ball.
