Product details

The Babolat Pure Strike 98 16x19 is targeted toward aggressive all-court players looking for precision and feel from around the court. The Pure Strike 98 16x19 features an open string pattern for added spin while its thin beam provides comfort and control. The 11.4oz strung weight and 327 RDC swing weight provides great stability and controllable power in a frame that is easy to maneuver.

Key Features:

  • Stable and Mobile – Its 11.4oz strung weight and swing weight of 327 RDC make for a stable racquet that is still mobile enough to swing aggressively from all areas of the court.
  • C2 Pure Feel – Cortex Vibration dampening material mixed with a flexible viscoelastic rubber placed at 3 and 9 o’clock makes for a more dampened, comfortable feel and better ball pocketing on impact compared to previous versions.
  • Control Frame Technology – The hybrid shape of the frame combines the control and feel of a traditional square beam with the easy-to-generate racquet head speed found in a modern elliptical beam for the best of both worlds.

This racquet is in the Pure line of Babolat but offers lots more control and consistency compared to the Pure Drive and Pure Aero. With a weight of 305g unstrung, it's a very stable racquet with great feel and will allow you to swing through and still have lots of control. It is similar to the Wilson Blade and Wilson Pro staff. All in all, it's a really good racquet.
