We hit with the Babolat Pure Strike VS 2022 last night and really enjoyed it. This version of the racquet has a thicker bumperguard which gives it added durability.
It seems like it has more control compared to the Pure Strike VS' in the past. It felt like it had more ball feel too. We think it is because they did not add too much tech into the racquet which allows it to keep a lot of feel within the graphite racquet and not mute it too much.
We would recommend the regular version to a 4.5 USTA level player and up. The flexibility in the regular version of this Babolat racquet gives it a lot of control. If you are more of a beginner to intermediate player, we would recommend the Pure Strike 103 2022 version because the larger racquet headsize will give you more forgiveness and power.
