The Yonex Ezone 100 and the Babolat Pure Drive are two rackets that offer a good mix of power, control, and spin for intermediate to advanced tennis players.
Both of these tennis rackets have very similar racket specs, so this article will look at what differentiates these two rackets so you can get a better idea as to which racket will suit you better.
Differences Between the Yonex Ezone 100 and the Babolat Pure Drive
For this racket comparison, I used the 2022 Version of the Yonex Ezone 100 and the 2021 Version of the Babolat Pure Drive.

In terms of differences, the Pure Drive has a slightly heavier swing weight at 320g but the Ezone 100 is only 3g lighter so you are not going to feel a huge difference.
The Pure Drive is also the stiffer of the two rackets so the Ezone 100 is likely to be more arm-friendly of the two rackets.
In terms of their beam width, the Ezone 100 has a slightly thicker beam so it will be easier to generate power with the Yonex Ezone 100 when compared with the Babolat Pure Drive.
In my opinion, both of these tennis rackets are not suited for beginners as they are too heavy and don’t provide a ton of power.
However, if you are more of an intermediate to advanced player then the Ezone 100 and Pure Drive can be good options for you.
As both tennis rackets have very similar specs, so you are;t going to feel a huge difference playing with either of these two rackets but I would give a slight edge to the Ezone 100 as it gives you a little more help in terms of power and is less stiff racket than the Pure Drive.
