With the 3rd Generation of the Pure Strike Team, Babolat delivers a more dampened feel but keeps the outstanding playability of the previous generation. As the lightest and fastest member of the Pure Strike family, this 10.7 ounce racquet is ideal for the intermediate player who wants controllable power, easy access to spin and great feel. Like the previous generation, it has a hybrid frame construction (called Control Frame Technology), which blends the control and feel of square beam with the speed and dynamism of a modern elliptical beam. This racquet also has FSI Power technology which features wider spacing between the upper cross strings for easier access to spin and pace. New to this frame is C2 Pure Feel, a material technology that combines cortex with a uniquely flexible viscoelastic rubber at 3/9 o'clock for added comfort and dwell time. On groundstrokes, the Pure Strike Team feels crisp, spin-friendly and accurate, with very predictable results on full swings. It's also quite fast, making it great for scrambling on defense or cranking winners on the run. The maneuverability continues on volleys and service returns where the Pure Strike Team glides into position with remarkable ease. As with the heavier Pure Strike models, the Team has great touch for hitting malicious droppers or working the ball into tight spaces. Ultimately, this is a great option for those who want a light and user-friendly performance racquet with easy targeting from all areas of the court.
