Part of Babolat’s “Serve Your Colours” Flag Collection, the Pure Strike Japan features an exclusive paintjob in honour of one of the world’s great tennis nations.
The Babolat Pure Strike range is designed to emphasise control and feel, ideal for players who like to construct tactical rallies and win through consistent, precise shotmaking – think Dominic Thiem and his penetrating groundstrokes.
The latest Pure Feel technology – C2PUREFEEL – provides superior vibration dampening for more accurate sensory information, allowing you to make micro-adjustments to your shot so it hits the line rather than drifting half a millimetre wide.
CONTROL FRAME TECHNOLOGY, meanwhile, gives you the best of both worlds: the stability of a square beam frame and the dynamism of a regular elliptic structure. Thiem says the new Pure Strike gives him confidence when striking the ball hard, and it’s easy to see why then the racket feels so reliable in the hand.

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.
