Babolat Pure Strike tennis racquet is new for 2014 and offers a more open 16x19 string pattern for added spin potential. Strikes the perfect balance between response and precision for ones game. New EVO-Beam hybrid construction, (mix square and elliptic), that features different thickness of the beam for less torque at ball impact and better responsiveness. X-Sider technology that increases the sweetspot by 10% to bring forgiveness on off-center hits. Response Woofer technology with new PEBAX material injected to the grommets and bumper which provides a straighter more accurate shot off the stringbed. Stabilizer technology located in the throat of the racquet for improved torsional stability at ball impact.

With a 21/23/21mm Tapered Beam and a 98 square inch headsize, this racquet provides the ultimate feel and control. The 2014 Pure Strike is a great option for intermediate to advanced players, especially for those looking for a control frame without sacrificing speed.

5 Stars Big swing, big reward

I am a 5.0 player, and used the Yonex RQiS 1 Tour for years. I decided to try a new racket, and bought the Pure Strike. I take a big cut at the ball on the forehand and backhand side, and I did not find it leaving me short at all. If I did not take a big swing, or covered the ball too much, it fell short. Simply put: swing big and this racket is a dream. On serve, I really enjoyed the amount of control I got and a little extra pop and action on slice serves. The control I had on traditional volleys was amazing. Even touch volleys worked well.

5 Stars Excellent racquet

I am solid 4.0 player looking to add more versatility to my game and this racquet did just that. Superb control and excellent spin when needed. Smooth and solid feel upon impact, very precise shot making. Definitely will improve your game. If you are demoing you MUST try this racquet. I use it with ADDICTON string... and I amaze myself at times !!

5 Stars Fantastic

Broke a prestige pro and wanted to try something new but close to it. Saw the racket and loved the design. Played it yesterday, fantastic! More forgiving than PP, more control and more pop at the serve. Liked the volley a lot. Super racket, i am sticking to it.

5 Stars Very Versatile Racket

from GA wrote (May 20, 2014):

I started playing tennis within the last year and purchased an entry level Babolat racket. As I improved my game, I also needed to improve my racket. My local shop has a demo program so I took advantage of trying any and every brand, weight, head size etc. After about 20-30 demos over the period of 3-4 months, I narrowed the choices down to Wilson 99s, Babolat Pure Strike 16x19 and the 18x20 version. I believe the Wilson also shares a 16x19 string pattern, with a similar spin, however I had a lot of issues volleys and since my focus moving forward is doubles, I decided against the Wilson. The 18x20 had all the same pros for me as the 16x19 minus the spin, and as I am shifting my focus away from power and into control / spin, I decided against that racket as well. The 16x19 racket has amazing spin, control and can really save shots I normally would not have made with another racket. From an aesthetics perspective, it's probably one of the most eye-catching rackets available in the Babolat line.
