Featuring more control plus a better feel -- remaining the gold standard frame for players who use spin as their weapon of choice to dominate the court. Babolat has added in Carbonplystabilizer to the Pure Aero which is powered by Chomarat. This new addition to the Pure Aero is a new generation of high-performance carbon fibers for more control and stability on every shot. Rafa's weapon of choice for the past 15 years, the Pure Aero is designed for players who seek the ultimate spin racquet.
Like previous generations of the Pure Drive, the racquet will keep its anti-twisting Elliptical Frame Shape which allows for ample power within the frame. Woofer technology is also integrated into the new 2018 frame. Babolat's Woofer technology allows strings to interact more with the ball upon impact, giving more Babolat updates their FSI technology, with wider spacing to go with diamond shape grommet holes. This will allow more forgiveness and additional power on each hit.
C² Pure Feel combined with Cortex allows for a nice dampened feel in a player focused specification. 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 FX 500 is for the modern player looking to implement high power into their games. The Dunlop FX 500 is perfect for the player who likes to play on the attack with a large sweet spot allowing for ample power.

Volkl updates the oversized version of the V1 with the all-new 2019 V-Feel V1 OS tennis racquet. It’s arm-friendly oversized frame features excellent feel at a comfortable weight.

Revolutionary design that blends playing characteristics (power + control) & (flexibility + stability), like no other racquet before.

With a 100 square inch head size, a solid 11 ounce strung weight, and an open 16x19 string pattern, the Clash 100 is a great feeling racquet for a wide variety of player types looking for a mixture of power, control, and spin.
This 7th version is more slightly head-light than the previous version & includes "FeelFlex" technology, an evolution to Clash's "FreeFlex" technology, a proprietary carbon mapping strategically placed throughout the hoop of racquet for better connected-to-the-ball feel and additional flexibility. Wilson also added "Top Grip Taper" which provides a more comfortable top-hand grip placement. This racquet is tailored towards that advanced player that places a premium on control & feel.
Like previous generations of the EZONE 98; the racquet remains an easy-swinging player’s frame that offers excellent feel, spin, and stability. The EZONE 98 (305G) comes with a new deep blue colorway update.
