Advanced players looking for a frame that packs a heavy punch will enjoy the new Babolat Pure Strike Tour. 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 11.3oz (unstrung) weight allows it to hit heavy, deep shots and move opponents around the court. The increased mass also makes it exceptionally stable n defensive shots. Stability is also aided by Stabilizer Technology, which utilizes hybrid frame construction and stiff carbon fiber for improved torsional stability. The increased head light balance ensures this frame remains highly maneuverable at the net despite its weight. 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 Tour is a great option for players who can handle a higher mass frame and want to hit through the court with the maximum blend of power and precision.
