For aggressive ball strikers looking to control the court with power and spin, the all new Babolat Pure Strike 16x19 represents a very attractive option. The new Pure Strike line replaces the previous AeroStorm models and features an all new design. The 98 square inch head size ensures the maximum in precision and responsiveness. Babolat’s new X-Sider technology enlarges the sweet spot by 10%, yielding increased forgiveness on off center shots. The variable 21/23/21mm beam width of this frame’s Evo Beam design decreases torque on ball contact and increases the responsiveness of the frame. The Response Woofer grommet system now includes PEBAX material injected into the grommets and bumper, adding additional power. The racquets 10.8oz (unstrung) weight gives it plenty of mass to hit heavy balls, while also being stable enough to handle big hitters. Stability is also aided by Stabilizer Technology, which utilizes hybrid frame construction and stiff carbon fiber for improved torsional stability. The head light balance ensures this frame remains highly maneuverable at the net and is able to handle volleys with ease. The 16x19 string pattern provides players access to a mix of spin and 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 16x19 is a great option for players seeking a responsive, attacking frame that blends power, spin and control into one package.
