If you want to own the court with the extra precision of an 18X20 string pattern, the Pure Strike 18/20 is perfect for your game. You might not beat Dominic Thiem, but you can play with the same racquet.



You fancy playing early, you like taking some risk, either attacking the net whenever you can or just keeping the baseline hitting winners, we made the Pure Strike 3d generation to suit exactly your game. With the extra responsiveness the frame now provides, you will be able to take control


You need to be fully confident in your stick to play your style.

Expert product review
Tennis Expert Brandon M.
Review by Curated Expert Brandon M.
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. The Pure Strike 18x20 offers the best feel of any Babolat racquet and should be a must-try for any high-level player.
