As such this one is ideal for the 4.5+ player who wants maximum control without having to sacrifice speed. From the baseline this racquet's precise 18x20 string pattern and ultra controlled delivery allow the player to attack the ball without fear of over-hitting. This should give aggressive players the needed confidence to step on the gas when more power and spin are needed. The Pure Strike also has the speed, stability and accuracy for taking the ball on the rise and effectively redirecting incoming pace. At net this one offers a crisp and controlled response while never feeling sluggish on rapid-fire exchanges or put-aways. Finally, this racquet's exceptional control should definitely help keep more big first serves in play. All in all, this is a great option for the intermediate or advanced player who wants a mobile player's racquet and the confidence that comes with it.
