Description

For aggressive ball strikers looking to control the court, the all new Babolat Pure Strike 18x20 represents a very attractive option. The new Pure Strike line replaces the previous AeroStorm models and is 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 racquet's 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 18x20 string pattern ensures the pinnacle of directional control and precision off the string bed. 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 can balance power and control. Complete your Pure Strike look with a Bag or Backpack!

Pure Strike 18/20
5/5
I tried all of the Pure Strikes and this is the one that stood out. The Pure Strike 100 was too light and did not offer enough control, and the tour was far too heavy for me. If you need help generating spin then I would definitely recommend the 16/19 string pattern if not, then you should certainly go with the 18/20 model because it offers more control with a much firmer feel.

Great Racquet
5/5
This is a great racquet. I have a lot of control and power with it. I find that I am getting even more spin and accuracy with the same stroke compared to my prior racquet. Would highly recommend this racquet to any mid-level player.

Best racket I have used
5/5
I am very happy with my Pure Strike 18X20 98 sq inch racket. It is my second Pure Strike 18X20 that I have purchased. I liked the first one so much that I wanted to have a second one when my strings are being replaced. This racket is light yet packs a good punch. I put in Babolat Addiction 16G strings at 55 lbs. I also use Wilson Gamma TNT2 16G in my other Babolat Pure Strike. I am a 64 year old male and I play at a 4.5 level. I play about 15 hours a week and this racket and string combination has worked out very well for me.
