After months of testing under the name “Project One 7”, the new Pure Strike is ready to be unleashed. And with a redesigned frame shape, optimised for maximum response and accuracy, it’s a new beginning for Babolat’s aggressive First Striker racket.
The specs may not have changed much, but the overall feel of the racket is very different, owing to the new frame. The racket feels slightly heavier in the hand, and it’s easier to produce power and spin. It’s also a very stable racket, excelling in block volleys at the net in addition to returning big servers. Dominic Thiem seems to love his!
Please note that all Pure Strike rackets come without a protective head cover.
• Headsize: 98 sq. in.
• Weight: 320g

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.
