Packed with power, precision and spin, the Boost Strike is one of the better values in Babolat’s racket line. At 10.4 ounces this racket is not only light enough for beginners and rising juniors, but it should also work well for the intermediate player who wants a light option. With its explosive acceleration and grippy 16×19 string pattern, the Boost Strike will give you very easy access to spin. The 102 square inch head is not only forgiving and lively, but it also feels wonderfully crisp and precise on full swings. With their time-tested Woofer grommet system, Babolat adds some extra comfort and power to the stringbed – a welcomed feature considering the firm (and powerful) beam. From the baseline this user-friendly racket moves through the air with remarkable ease. There also enough control to give you the confidence to swing away. At net the Boost Strike is never late the party. It moves into position quickly and provides a comfortably firm platform for blocking the ball into the open court. The speedy feel is also an asset on serves, where this stick explodes through contact to offer plenty of pop and easy targeting.
