Description

Sharp control, a new version of the popular Pure Strike series these new models bring dynamic control and pure feel with unprecedented response. New Pure Feel technology integrates vibration dampening that players love in the Drive and Aero line with the new Strike series while the unique Control Frame Technology pairs the stability of a square beam with the dynamism of the classic elliptic structure.

The Pure Strike 98 is the most popular in the series, the smaller sweetspot offers more control and the 18x20 string pattern offers superb control and touch as it decreases the rebound off the stringbed. At a slightly heavier weight the racquets feel stable and the head light balance makes swinging them easy for players that are used to hitting long heavy strokes.

Photos used contain images of strings for illustration purposes. Adult tennis racquets are unstrung unless otherwise noted or stringing services have been selected above. Brand logo stencils are not applied by default with stringing services. If you request brand logo stencils, please note that a stencil is painted onto the strings within a brand's stencil and may wear off over time - this is how stencils are applied on tour. Depending on the string you select, the stencil paint application fullness, colour and visibility may vary.
Adult racquets generally do not come with covers. To protect your racquet, we recommend getting a racquet bag.

Product specs such as weight may vary slightly from racquet to racquet to what is advertised due to the manufacturing process.

Adult Racquets Sizing Information
Grip Size Length
L0 (4") 4" (4 inches)
L1 (4 1/8") 4 and 1/8" (4.125 inches)
L2 (4 1/4") 4 and 2/8" (4.25 inches)
L3 (4 3/8") 4 and 3/8" (4.375 inches)
L4 (4 1/2") 4 and 4/8" (4.5 inches)
L5 (4 5/8") 4 and 5/8" (4.625 inches)

To determine your grip size without using a racquet, measure from the tip of your ring finger to the major fold crease in your palm. Write down the distance to the nearest 8th of an inch. This is your standard grip size.

Grip size palm measurements for tennis racquets

If you fall somewhere between the measurements, it is recommended to choose the smaller grip size as you can always build the grip size up using an overgrip (for a slight increase) or a grip build-up sleeve (for a half or full size increase). The grip measurements above factor in the pre-installed factory grip.
