With its extended length and meaty swingweight (330 RDC), the Pure Control Tour Plus puts some serious leverage and plow-through in the hands of strong intermediates and advanced ball strikers. For those who can get the mass moving, this one crushes the ball. Fans of the Pure Storm Tour Plus GT should appreciate this update. In addition to the crisp graphite layup, this one deploys a material called Flex Carbon which boosts flexibility in key locations to deliver a noticeably softer response. The open 16x20 pattern provides enough bite for bringing the ball down sharply. From the baseline our TW playtesters reported a rock solid feel at impact, and we definitely appreciated the flexible feel. While this racquet errs on the side of control, it offers big hitters enough leverage and mass based power to create a heavy ball. At net the Tour Plus is not easily pushed around. There's enough stability to effectively block the ball back with depth, even when stretched out. Aggressive net players who like to crush overheads will appreciate the extra length. Same thing for aggressive servers, who should be able to use the extra leverage to punish their opponents with well placed power. Best suited to 4.5 players looking for impressive plow-through and feel along with the needed control for attacking the ball with confidence.

THE FIRST DYNAMIC SYSTEM WHICH MAKES THE FRAME AND THE STRINGS INTERACT WHEN STRIKING THE BALL

A tennis racket is a frame with strings. The frame is basically static and holds the driving force of the racquet - the strings - in place. The strings are attached to both sides of the frame. Only some strings are active when struck by the ball. This means that racquets do not deliver their full potential. Babolat set out to imagine a racquet optimizing the frame and the strings - to invent a frame which permits all the strings to work together to their full potential when striking the ball.

PULLEY FUNCTION

  • The WOOFER eliminates string lock-up: the strings are free to move.
  • The whole surface area reacts on impact: with the WOOFER, more strings work together when striking the ball. The strings are interactive. This increases sweetspot size, improving forgiveness during off-center shots and absorbing much of the shock produced during ball impact.

PISTON FUNCTION

  • Increase in the Trampoline Effect: The piston function enables greater surface deformation on impact, delivering 10% extra power and ensuring that the strings retain their energy for a longer time.
  • Shock Absorption: The pistons act like a suspension system to dampen unwanted vibration.
Flex Carbon
New material featruing a lower density of carbon fibers for a more flexible feel.
