Expert Review

As compared to the Babolat Pure Drive that Andy Roddick made famous, and now comes in with a stiffness rating of 72 (in other words, it’s stiff), the Pure Control 95 is much more friendly to your elbow and the racket has a stiffness rating of 58. Made of a combination of graphite and flex carbon, it has a standard 18 x 20 string pattern and weighs 11.9 oz strung. That's a little on the heavy side for tennis-elbow rackets but players coming from a racket that is 12 oz. or more will be happy with this transition.

The 95 square inch head size is more appropriate for an advanced player but this racket is a reasonable choice for someone playing with the popular Babolat stiffer rackets who wants to stay with the brand. Here's something to try with this racket; have your stringer experiment with a 16 x 18 pattern. While the pattern might look funny, see if your elbow laughs along with you.Rating: 4/5
