The Pure Strike VS returns for 2022! Babolat designed the Pure Strike VS towards the player that likes to play with control and feel in mind. Babolat updated the graphics of the Pure Strike with a sleek cosmetic look.

Babolat made some cool new updates to the frame including widening the beam at both the 3 & 9 o'clock positions giving the frame slightly more stability. Babolat includes their "CFT" Control Frame technology which helps add additional flexibility to the shaft, allowing for both more stability and better control.

The Pure Strike VS features a 97 square inch head size with a thin beam, is an optimal weapon for that responsive feel. The racquet itself weighs in at approximately 11.6 ounces strung weight, perfect weight for an avid to advanced player. 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.

For Optimal String Performance Babolat Recommends:

  • Durability: Babolat RPM Blast
  • Playability: Babolat Xcel
  • Hybrid: Babolat RPM Blast / XCEL

If selecting tension "Below Range", please note at checkout within the comments field your desired tension value.

Modern update of the Pure Control
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using for 20 years, the Babolat Pure Control Team (98 sq inch head, flat beam). Recently bought the Blade 98 16x19 v8 and enjoyed using it, but found it lacked responsiveness, crispness and would sail shots out long often. When I saw the Pure Strike VS available and read the reviews, it sounded like my old Pure Control, and it does play like it so far I'm happy to say... The one thing I don't love about it, is the 9 and 3 o'clock positions on the frame are 22 inches, as the top and lower throat are 21 and you can definitely see the variation. The leather grip is also very thin and doesn't have much padding so it can be harsh on your hand. The weight came in perfect on both, at 10.9 oz.
