Introducing the third generation of the Pure Strike 100, a light player's racket that combines moderate power and spin-friendly precision with good feel. At approximately 300 grams (unstrung) and boasting a 319-RDC swingweight, the Pure Strike 100 strikes the right balance between speed and stability. Like the previous generation, it has a hybrid frame construction (called Control Frame Technology), which blends the control and feel of square beam with the speed and dynamism of a modern elliptical beam. This racket also has FSI Power technology which features wider spacing between the upper cross strings for easier access to spin and pace. New to this frame is C2 Pure Feel, a material technology that combines cortex with a uniquely flexible viscoelastic rubber at 3/9 o'clock for added comfort and dwell time. On groundstrokes, this stick feels fast, crisp and accurate. Although not as powerful as the Pure Drive or Pure Aero, the Pure Strike 100 packs enough pop to penetrate the back court, and it has the needed pocketing and touch for crafting droppers and sharp angles. Boasting a higher swingweight than the previous generation, this update does a slightly better job absorbing and redirecting pace, but it's still speedy enough for whipping up effective spin. At net, the Pure Strike 100 comes around fast to deliver good touch, above average stability for its weight class and decent pop on punch volleys. Aggressive servers will find enough spin, precision and power to force weak replies. This racket also shines on service returns where it is versatile enough to block first serves deep or punish second serves. Ultimately, with some impressive  tweaks to the feel, the Pure Strike 100 remains a great option for the player who wants a light player's racket with easy targeting on full swings.
