Babolat Pure Strike 103 2022
The newly minted speed machine features Babolat's new C² Pure Feel Powered by SMAC. Babolat implements a material technology at the 3 & 9 o'clock positions of the frame -- this combined with cortex allows for a nice dampened feel. Babolat continues the use of FSI Power Technology -- an optimized string pattern that was designed with wider spacing within the crosses, providing additional power. Also featured is Babolat's Hybrid Frame construction which gives any player a unique blend of power and control. The new Pure Strike 103 will be a little more forgiving than the smaller models within the frame, while still maintaining a nice balance of control and feel thanks to the new C² Pure Feel. Headsize: 103 sq. in. Weight (strung): 10.7 oz. Stiffness (Babolat RDC): 63 String Pattern: 16x19
Babolat Pure Strike VS 2022
Babolat designed the Pure Strike VS for players that like to play with control and feel. They also updated the aesthetics of the Pure Strike with a sleek cosmetic chrome look. Babolat widened the beam at both the 3 & 9 o'clock positions giving the frame slightly more stability. They also included their "CFT" (Control Frame technology) which helps add additional flexibility to the shaft, allowing for both more stability and better control. The Babolat Pure Strike VS provides any player with a nice level of maneuverability. Overall the Babolat Pure Strike VS is an excellent user-friendly option that will fit a variety of player levels. Headsize: 97 sq. in. Weight (strung): 11.6 oz. Stiffness (Babolat RDC): 61 String Pattern: 16x20
