Babolat Pure Strike Tour Tennis Racquet DEMO RENTAL

The Babolat Pure Strike Tour demo tennis racquet is new for 2014 and offers more responsiveness at ball impact. Players with long faster strokes will get the perfect balance between response and precision with the Pure Strike racquet. 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 EVO beam, a 98 square inch headsize and a strung weight of 11.9 ounces, this racquet provides the ultimate feel and control for players with faster more developed strokes. The 2014 Pure Strike is a great option for advanced players, looking for a control frame with great stability and pop.

3 Stars didn't wow me

This racquet did not play too well for me. I am a 3.5 flat hitter. I was able to put more spin on this ball but it has a very muted feel to it and leaves me a bit disconnected from the feel of the game. It was good on serve, but groundstrokes were muted. It also felt heavy at the net even though it was lighter than the racquet I usually play with. The one thing I did like about it was that it generated a really nice slice one handed backhand compared to my current Head Microgel Radical MP (leaded). I don't have a lot bad to say about it but it just wasn't what I was looking for or expecting out of a Babolat. The paint job is really nice, though. I may try the Pure Drive 2015 next.

4 Stars If you hit it right its a winner

The new Babolat PS Tour took a few days of hitting to really find its sweet spot. At first it was hard to hit but when you caught the ball just right it felt amazing. The extra heft gives you the confidence to hit through the ball on volley and serve. Once you master it you won't go back. You can place the ball and crush it with the same racket. There is no compromise on control or power, it's all in one package. Does take a strong arm bc it is a little heavy but I imagine if Chuck Norris played tennis this would be his stick.

4 Stars Demo Program Gr8; Racket so-so

First of all kudos to Midwest Sports for a fabulous demo program - low cost, efficient and top notch. As far as the racket is concerned I found it lacking in heft and stiffness and so I am going to purchase it.
