As you can see from the table above, the Babolat range of Boost rackets has very similar racket specs.

The Boost Drive and the Boost Drive W have identical racket specs with the only difference being the color of the rackets.

Similarly, the Boost Aero Yellow, the Boost Aero W, and the Boost Aero Rafa share identical racket specs with the only difference being the color of the rackets.

The Boost S is the outlier in the range as it has a higher strung weight than the other rackets and it has a head light balance rather than a head heavy balance.

Which Babolat Boost Tennis Racket Should I Buy?

You won’t find a huge difference between the Babolat Boost Drive, Boost Drive W, Boost Aero Yellow, Boost Aero W, and the Boost Aero Rafa as they all have very similar racket specs.

For absolute beginners, my recommendation would be to get the Babolat Boost Aero Yellow as it has a lighter swight weight than the Boost Drive and the Boost S, so it will be easier for beginners to swing.

If you have some experience playing tennis and you are starting to develop a full swing, then I would recommend the Babolat Boost S as its extra weight and head light balance will help you to better control your shots when compared to the other rackets in the Boost range.

If you are an advanced tennis player then I wouldn’t recommend any of the Babolat Boost tennis rackets as they won’t offer the control you need from a tennis racket.

Babolat Boost Vs Pure Drive

The Pure Drive is probably the most popular all round racket that is offered by Babolat.

So how does the Boost range of rackets compare to the Pure Drive?

Below are some of the main differences between the Babolat Boost range of rackets and the Babolat Pure Drive are:

  • The Pure Drive has a smaller head size (100 in) than all the tennis rackets in the boost range.
  • The Pure Drive has a much higher strung weight (318g) than all the Babolat Boost rackets so it will be easier to generate power with the Pure Drive.
  • The Pure Drive has a more head light balance so it feels like it is much easier to manoeuver than the Boost rackets.
  • The Pure Drive is also a slightly stiffer racket than the Boost rackets so it won’t be the most arm friendly racket you can play with.
