The third generation of Babolat Pure Strike Tennis Rackets boasts new dampening technology while keeping the alluring playability of the previous generation. With a slightly increased swingweight, this new generation offers more stability and power but is still aggressive enough for fast players.
Like the previous generation, it has a hybrid frame construction or Control Frame Technology, which blends the control and feel of square beam with the speed and dynamism of a modern elliptical beam.
This racquet also has FSI Power technology which features wider spacing between the upper cross strings for easier access to spin and pace. New to this frame is C² Pure Feel, a material technology that combines cortex with a uniquely flexible viscoelastic rubber at 3/9 o'clock.
With some small but crutial updates to the feel, the Pure Strike 16x19 remains one of the more alluring and user-friendly player's racquets in Babolat's line-up.
