Tennis Racquet Review: 2017 Babolat Pure Strike
October 4th, 2016 by Do It Tennis
If you’re ready to get wild and be the attacker on the tennis court the new Babolat Pure Strike tennis racquets could be your best choice. It’s the latest in the Babolat Pure Strike series of tennis racquets. It was developed in partnership with Babolat’s top-ten ATP tennis player Dominic Theim and input from over 200 Babolat tennis ambassadors through their intiative #projectone7. Theim created a stir when he appeared at the 2016 U.S. Open Tennis Championships with the new stark white and orange frame version. The new Pure Strike series used a hybrid elliptical head and more square throat beam for both head speed and shot stability. It works for players that are typically on the offensive or for those players who want to become more assertive in their tennis matches.
