The 2019 Pure Strike 26 inch junior racquet is consistent with the other Pure Strike racquets in the 2019 line, as far as technology goes, but offers a shorter length of 26 inches. Just like the previous generation, this one has a hybrid frame construction (i.e. Control Frame Technology) resulting in a frame that is firm for power yet is flexible enough to provide control. In addition, FSI Power is back which makes it easier to generate spin and power (i.e. wider string spacing) than other racquets in this category. Not to be outdone, the biggest change comes in the addition of C2 Pure Feel technology. Essentially this consists of a special material being added at 3 & 9 o'clock resulting in long ball dwell time on strings and increased comfort. While some frames dampen the ball shock too much, Babolat has done a great job at finding a balance in this racquet to allow the player comfort without sacrificing response. This racquet comes pre-strung. Final Thought: This is a great racquet for competitive junior players or those who simply want to have a good frame with added control! Adults who need a lighter weight racquet could use this as well! The lighter weight and shorter size compared to the adult versions will assist those who need an easier to move frame!
