    Great racket!

    I didn’t want to wait a week for delivery from the major online tennis stores so I gave this seller a try. Worked great! I received it in two days. I string my own rackets so that’s not an issue. The Pure Drive is a top choice for serious tennis players.

    Just as expected

    Racquet arrived just as described. String was included but not pre-strung. Factory wrapping was intact. I took it to my local racquet store to have my own string and grip installed with no issues. I would definitely purchase again if needed.

    Stock stringing suboptimal

    A solid racquet but I was very disappointed with the stock stringing. No pop, or power which was a disappointment. Probably better to get without strings and get a pro to do it.

    Doesn’t come with strings

    Okay if the racket doesn’t come with strings then it should say so in the description and the racket itself shouldn’t show it having strings in the picture. It’s a jerk move in my opinion. The only way you see that it doesn’t have strings was in the Q&A towards the bottom. I didn’t look in the Q&A because I already knew this was the racket I wanted so judging by the picture AND the description I purchased it.

    False listing and details

    The listing shows 5 images of the racket strung. However the product mentions no where in the listing that it comes unstrung. Please be aware of the misleading product listing when purchasing.

  24. Mohammed

    Bad Strings

    Very bad strings for such a good/ expensive racket. The strings are different from the picture and it was strung so poorly. I tried it yesterday for the first time, and was definitely disappointed with strings.

    Not Strung!

    Did not come strung like in the picture. More cost.

  26. Raj

    Ok Racket Bad Strings

    I received this racket last week and used a couple of times so far. The strings are so bad they move when i hit the ball and they are already loose. Did not expect the seller would use such cheap strings for an expensive racket. Dont buy this on amazon from this seller. Get it from a store or online like tennis express where you have an option to choose better strings.

    Beware its scam , defected racket & strings. Don’t buy

    The item came defected and the string are very poor quality and loose. They are misleading here with the fake images and running scam. On placing a return request they hold 50% of the amount. Don’t buy from this seller at all.
