Designed and developed for advanced players who want to combine the power of Pure Drive with the increased precision found in the VS edition.
The key differences between the standard Pure Drive and the VS edition is the slightly smaller headsize and a thinner, more flexible beam. This change aims to refine and increase the control of the classic Pure Drive. This 2-pack features a maximum weight difference of 1.9g between the frames, perfect for those players looking to ensure that precision of feel and play is maximized.
It also offers the pure power and the pure feel of the Pure Drive thanks to the FSI Power technology featuring wider string-spacing and diamond-shaped grommets that provide an improved sweetspot over the whole width of the racquet to maximize power on every shot, even when off-centered. This should also increase spin potential.
The Cortex Pure feel technology, inspired from the space industry, provides better vibration dampening thanks to material integrated in the graphite of the racquet, offering an incredible sound and more direct feel during the game.
Swing faster and swing bigger with this refined Pure Drive. The VS edition 2 Pack will give players an unrivaled level of power and precision.

Photos used contain images of strings for illustration purposes. Adult tennis racquets are unstrung unless otherwise noted or stringing services have been selected above. Brand logo stencils are not applied by default with stringing services. If you request brand logo stencils, please note that a stencil is painted onto the strings within a brand's stencil and may wear off over time - this is how stencils are applied on tour. Depending on the string you select, the stencil paint application fullness, colour and visibility may vary.
Adult racquets generally do not come with covers. To protect your racquet, we recommend getting a racquet bag.
Adult Racquets Sizing Information
To determine your grip size without using a racquet, measure from the tip of your ring finger to the major fold crease in your palm. Write down the distance to the nearest 8th of an inch. This is your standard grip size.
If you fall somewhere between the measurements, it is recommended to choose the smaller grip size as you can always build the grip size up using an overgrip (for a slight increase) or a grip build-up sleeve (for a half or full size increase). The grip measurements above factor in the pre-installed factory grip.
