Babolat created the Pure Strike 16x19 for players looking for the precision and feel they need to be the first striker on the court. A variety of technologies (Evo Beam, X Sider, Response Woofer and Stabilizer Technology) adds more forgiveness outside the sweetspot and create a fast, control-oriented racquet. We found more power, more comfort and a larger sweetspot with this 16x19 string pattern than we did with the 18x20 version. The maneuverability and crisp feel allowed our playtesters to finish points at the net with ease, but the serve return was the hands down favorite shot for our playtesters to hit. The Pure Strike allowed them to take the ball early and hit a variety of aggressive returns. All in all, intermediate to advanced players looking for a fast and controllable racquet for singles or doubles should give the Pure Strike 16x19 a try.
