Babolat Pure Strike racquet

Developed for the base liner who hits the ball on the rise and plays mostly inside the court, this racquet provides more precision and power. The hybrid frame couples square and elliptic design, offering more responsiveness when impacting the ball and a carbon fiber construction improves stability.

Head Graphene Radical Pro racquet

For players accustomed to the Radical racquet, this latest offering from Head will be sure to mix it up. A higher weight boosts power while still allowing for good swing and stability around the court. Aggressive base liners after some grunt should take note.
