    Hello, I'm currently using a Babolat E-Sense Lite and I'm thinking of upgrading to a new racquet. I'm a high school student using a one handed backhand and I have moderate top spin. Any suggestions? I'm thinking of the Babolat pure drive..

    What are your likes/dislikes about your current racquet? Why do you feel the need to switch? Do you have any preferences when it comes to specs?

    Well, I like the fact that my current racquet is light and very easy to volley with, but my dislike is that I tend to use my own strength into shots to put power into them. Since i'm using my own strength, I tire out more easily. I'm thinking to switching to a heavier racquet so I could find more control with a heavier racquet. I'm looking at something around the 11 ounce range and a 100 sq. inch headsize.

    Well, it sounds like you have to provided your own power...so you're looking for a more powerful racquet. The Pure Drive will have more control than your current frame, but it's also a pretty powerful racquet, so you'll find exactly what you're looking for. Some people say that it doesn't volley well because of the stiffness, but I found it to be very fun to volley with-not to mention the fact that there are tons of professional doubles specialists using it. It sounds like you're relatively new to the sport, so I wouldn't look too much into equipment and just go ahead and get the PDGT. You can use it for a long time, and you won't be disappointed!
