For advanced players who need a heavier frame that can provide the ultimate level of precision, the answer is the Babolat Pure Control Tour. Designed for players with long, fast swings, this frame offers the pinnacle of control from the Babolat product line. The frame is constructed from the all new Flex Carbon Technology. Flex Carbon provides a lower density of carbon fibers in the frame’s construction, yielding more flexibility, increased contact time between ball and racquet, and the maximum level of control. The 98 square inch head size allows for a good size sweet spot while keeping the frame precise and responsive. Woofer grommets allow for additional power and response. The 11.3oz (unstrung) weight allows the racquet to hit penetrating shots from all areas of the court. The extra weight also allows the racquet to remain supremely stable on contact, giving it exceptional accuracy on both offense and defense. The increased head-light balance makes the frame easy to maneuver at net despite the increased weight. The result is a nimble, solid-feeling frame that can be used as a precision weapon in the front of the court. The 16x20 string pattern allows for consistent control and accuracy, allowing players to dictate their shots with confidence. The Babolat Pure Control Tour is a great option for players with long swings seeking a flexible control frame with enough mass to send the ball deep into the court with precision.

Tennis Express Reviews
I have played with Prestige Mid & MP. I then switched to the Pure Storm Ltd. The new Pure Control Tour felt amazing since the first time in my hands. Feels light yet very solid. I can generate spin and control with this racket easily. Looking forward to great results with this racket.
I purchased 2 of these racquets. I wanted to get something newer since my pro staffs 6.1 were quite old. I did demo the pure drive tour before my purchase. But really sold me was all the other great reviews on these awesome racquets. I really like it at the net. These are great all around racquets.
That is the racket i was looking for
I am 5.0 player
This racket gives me the power i need
and a lot of control Very good racket
Babolat Pure Control Tour Racquet
Ive purchased the Babolat as my secondary racquet. This racquet feels very similar to my HEAD racquet and also has more power to it. The reason I gave a 4 stars instead of 5 is because I noticed the string starts to move around after just a couple of games. Ive bought my HEAD racquet from Tennis Express for roughly 8 months already but doesnt have that problem.
I had the Pure Storm before and I find this version of the Pure Control gives more balance and control with the balls without sacrificing too much of the power.
Its all he hoped for
My son is in high school and plays tennis a little better than average. He has been stuck finding a racquet to help propel him to the next level, though. An instructor friend had this racquet and recommended it highly. When he used it, he said it was awesome. After trying out many...he decided this was the one he wanted for Christmas and has been practicing with it ever since. He said its the best racquet hes ever had especially the control he gets with it and is looking forward to doing even better when the matches start. The man who took my order was very knowledgeable and helped me get through some tough questions I knew nothing about. In the end, it was perfect for my son! Thank you!!!
