Babolat introduces the 3rd generation of the Pure Strike racquet series. Updating the 2016 version with an all-new red & white 2019 Pure Strike 18x20 racquet. This frame is endorsed on tour by Dominic Thiem.

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 Pure Strike features a dense 18x20 string pattern combined with a 98 square inch head size with a 21/23/21mm tapered beam. The racquet itself with the all-new C² Pure Feel weighs in at a comfortable 11.4 ounce strung weight. Overall, an excellent update from Babolat with the new 2019 Pure Strike 18x20. This frame fits the players that seek out a responsive feel with great control.

  • Durability: Babolat RPM Blast
  • Playability: Babolat Xcel

Exactly what we were looking for in a racquet
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

My 14 yo researched the type of racquet he wanted. This racquet is the perfect fit for him. I appreciate that we could upgrade the strings and choose the tension. It was like being at a pro shop but with reasonable pricing. Thank you!!

Awesome power and spin
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This is the second pure strike 18 x 20 that I purchased. I have increased my shot speed and accuracy so much with this racquet. It is just stiff enough and the spin generated off of the string pattern is amazing. It's the perfect weight for an excellent serve and no shoulder issues. It is my forever racquet. Strung with hybrid Babolat RPM and blast.

It's a good one. Powerful and a lot of topspin. I like it.

Racquet was delivered on time, without damaged, with the correct string at the correct tension. Nothing more you can ask for from a retailer! I'm a (wannabe) aggressive baseliner with a lot of spin on my forehand (southwestern grip). Formerly used the Wilson Blade form 10 years ago and this was my first switch since then. I put Solinco Hyper-G at 50lbs in my strings.
