Babolat continues its traditional box beam construction with a name from the archives: Pure Control. Those who appreciate the phenomenal precision of the Pure Storm GT should be right at home with this update, especially if they're looking for a lighter (and faster!) feel. Featuring a new material called Flex Carbon, the Pure Control adds a softer more pliable response to the graphite/tungsten layup. The overall result is a racquet that plays sufficiently crisp but still manages to deliver buttery comfort and good shock absorption. From the baseline this one swings faster than its predecessor, a fact which should enable aggressive topspin players to crank up the spin. The speedy feel also helps at net where the Pure Control is great on heated exchanges or smashing floaters. It also has decent stability for its weight class (sub 11 ounces). As for serving, the maneuverability shines yet again, making it easier for the player to increase swing speed in the service of pace and spin. All in all, the Pure Control delivers the precision and classic feel of a player's racquet in a light and spin friendly package. This a great option for intermediates looking to transition to a control racquet, and it's also ideal for the advanced player who wants a light option or a great platform for weight customization.
