    I'm thinking of trying a babolat pure drive, but I don't want to try one with bad strings. I have a fast swing speed and I want a string with spin and control, being that the pure drive is powerful. I don't really want to try dead strings or polyester like the hurricane or big banger, so what would you guys suggest?

    Thanks in advance. :wink:

    I played with a PD Team Standard for a while and my favorite string was Wilson NXT. Can't stand NXT on my Pure Control Team but it worked great on the PD. Seem the compliment the PD very well. Plenty of spin, fairly soft feel and plenty of power. Maybe not the best in the control department. I'm pretty sure I strung it at 55lb. Can't remember what guage.

    I've set up quite a few for folks with a mix of Pro Hurricane / NXT or Xcel.

    17G at 60 to 65lbs

    If you have the $$$ Gut / Hurricane Pro also very sweet.
