Like the Pure Storm Tour GT, the Pure Control Tour provides strong intermediates and advanced players with a wonderful blend of control, stability and feel. With this update Babolat retains the crisp graphite layup while strategically boosting the flexibility with a new material called Flex Carbon. The result is a comfortably crisp response that feels decidedly softer and more plaible than Babolat's stiffer, more modern player's sticks. Though nearly 12 ounces, this racquet's head light balance and manageable swingweight (316 RDC) give it a refreshingly fast feel from the baseline, a fact that lends itself to higher swing speeds and heavier spin. Factor in the exceptional control and you have a racquet that supplies aggressive players with the needed confidence to attack the ball. At net this one holds up well against pace, but its real strength is mobility, making it great on fast exchanges. Ultimately, the Pure Control Tour places a very effective combination of control and mobility in the hands of 4.5+ players. Those looking for a little extra flexibility and feel should love this one.

*Woofer Technology from Babolat


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.


  • 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.


  • 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.
