Babolat Pure Control Tour Tennis Racquet
The Babolat Pure Control Tour is new for 2014 and replaces the Pure Storm GT tennis racquet series. Still a quintessential players racquet with a solid, stable, comfortable feel, with GT (Graphite Tungsten) technology adding a hybrid of braided carbon fibers and tungsten filaments throughout the entire racquet. Babolat has developed a new material, Flex Carbon, with less density of carbon fibers for more flexibility. Flex Carbon technology is featured at the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock locations of the racquet, allowing for the ball to stay on the stringbed longer. Woofer technology eliminates any string lock-up, allowing the strings to move freely and enhancing the feeling of the ball.
With a 21mm straight beam and a 98 square inch headsize, the Pure Control Tour is designed for a more-advanced player with a longer, faster swing, looking for a frame with a heavier heft.

For me with a one hand backhand this offers control and power with xcel string . great flex and feel on all shots. I play at the 5.0 level , this stick needs a long, strong stroke .
