Babolat's Pure Strike 100 glides through the air with remarkable ease. At under 11 ounces and boasting a very low swingweight (304 RDC), the Pure Strike 100 is great for intermediates who need a lightning fast weapon that can be dispatched with power and purpose. Players who like to pressure their opponents by stepping inside the baseline and taking the ball early will find this racquet wonderfully quick and agile. On groundstrokes the ease of acceleration and open 16x19 string pattern provide the ingredients for fast strokes, decent power and big spin. There's also enough control for those who like to wear down their opponents with consistency. Advanced players looking for stability will find plenty of room for weight customization. At net the Pure Strike 100 offers speed, easy preparation and plenty of put-away power. As for serves, the fast feel makes it easy to add pace, and the spin-friendly response is perfect for hitting effective slices. Ultimately, the Pure Strike 100 is a nice option for strong juniors, small framed adults and intermediates who are looking for a mobile stick that has enough power, precision and spin potential for taking charge of the point. With some weight added to the shoulders, this one would make a very nice weapon for 5.0's and up.
