Babolat has once again created a racquet for aggressive ball strikers looking to control the court with power and spin, the all new Babolat Pure Strike 18x20 represents a very attractive option. The new Pure Strike line replaces the previous generation of Pure Strike models and features all new technology. The 98 square inch head size ensures the maximum in precision and responsiveness. Babolat’s new FSI Power technology spaces out the upper crosses of the racquet for more power and spin. New for this revision is the addition of Hybrid Frame Construction, which combines square and elliptical constructions to increase the responsiveness of the frame. Wider beam sections in the throat and at 3/9/12 o’clock enhances precision and increases stability at ball impact. The racquets 10.8oz (unstrung) weight gives it plenty of mass to hit heavy balls, while also being stable enough to handle big hitters. The head light balance ensures this frame remains highly maneuverable at the net and is able to handle volleys with ease. The 18x20 string pattern provides players access to maximum control for all of their shots. The frame is on the higher end of stiffness so players may want to decrease their string tension or utilize a softer material string to compensate. The Babolat Pure Strike 18x20 is a great option for players seeking a responsive, attacking frame that blends power, spin and control into one package.
