Offering the same features and technologies as the standard version, the Babolat Pure Strike 98 16/19 Wimbledon is a powerful and precise racket built for attacking and counter-attacking.
For Striker players who like to speed up the ball and need responsiveness to increase their precision, the Pure Strike has to be one of your first choices, especially because it features a brand new frame shape designed to maximise response and accuracy.
While the specs won’t have changed much, the overall feel of the racket is very different, feeling slightly heavier in the hand, which makes it easier to produce power and spin.
A very stable racket, it has wider beam sections at 3, 9 and 12 o’clock that enhances precision and stability at ball impact, making it excel as much for block volleys at the net as it does with returning big servers.
It has an optimised string pattern with wider spacing of the crosses that provide more power and control, while its Hybrid Frame Technology gives you a unique combination of power and control.
The Babolat Pure Strike is used by ATP Tour professional Dominic Thiem.
Headsize: 98sq. in
Unstrung Weight: 305g
String Pattern: 16/19
Please note that Babolat Pure Strike Tour rackets do not come with a protective head cover.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
