The Curated Take
The Babolat Pure Strike 18x20 is ideal for advanced players looking for precision and feel with very good stability. The moderate 11.4oz strung weight makes it less demanding than many classic players racquets, but the high 334RDC swingweight maintains all the stability that players need when facing hard hitting opponents. I personally would have liked a little more maneuverability to help on second serves and a little more free power as I've lost a little of my own as I've gotten older. The Pure Strike 18x20 offers the best feel of any Babolat racquet in my opinion and should be a must try for any high level player.
- Buttery smooth
- Rock solid stability
- Pinpoint accuracy
- Not much free power on tap
- Limited maneuverability holds back the serving potential
