Babolat Pure Strike 16x19Regular price $219.00
The third-generation Babolat Pure Strike 98 16x19 has arrived on the scene, bringing with it the playability that fans have come to know and love, along with an enhanced, modernized feel. Babolat has integrated new dampening technology into the frame to give it more ball pocketing and a more forgiving feel on contact. It also has a slightly higher swingweight than the 2017 model, providing added stability and a more solid feel. The 2017 version was a huge hit with our playtest team, and this update proved to be a worthy follow-up. Our team found the new Pure Strike 16x19 perfect for driving through the ball and cranking up the pace, making it a great option for the aggressive baseline player. The spin-friendly nature and ideal balance of power and control that have become synonymous with the name Pure Strike are still apparent, alongside even greater access to power, a larger sweetspot and plusher feel. Transitioning from the 2017 model to this third version should go seamlessly, and those new to the line who love playing a commanding game should mesh well with the modern feel and playability of the updated Pure Strike 98 16x19.
