The player's racquet in the Drive line-up, the Z-Tour 2009 weighs in at just under 300g. With the Z-Tour, Babolat continues its trend of producing lighter racquets suitable for hard hitting intermediate and advanced players. With its Elliptic Geometry frame and Cortex technologies, the Z-Tour offers a firm response and good access to power. We found spin generation easy with this racquet - due to the easy swinging weight and the 16/19 string pattern. At net the Z-Tour offers a stable platform and plenty of control on the volley. The Babolat Z-Tour 2009 is easy to get around, making it useful for those fast, reflex volleys. Best suited to 3.5 to 5.0 level players.
