    Hi yessir, The Pure Strike family was new for 2020, and we refresh our frames every 3 years usually, so there won't be new Strikes until 2023. Josh

    Hi wilsonbro, The Pure Strike family will be refreshed for 2023, so there won't be a new 18x20 until then. Josh

    Hi JoaoN, As long as the Pure Storm in question is a 98, yes, the Pure Strike VS 2017 grommets will fit. Josh

    Hi socal, I hear what you're saying, but we'll have to wait and see. The trend seems to be to have one VS model to see how it's received before we expand into more offerings. It would make sense though, given the player profile who would use this frame. Josh

    Hi yellowball, There are no plans to bring back more straps like on the Propulse 3 as far as I know, and there won't be any new styles for 2022, just new colors of the current models. Josh

    Hi Paul, I haven't hit it yet myself, but the reps were just in town and they said it is noticeably less powerful than the PC Tour or previous Pure Strike VS. The closest it seems to be is to the PS LTD, but with a slightly more open pattern and even more flexible. Josh

    Bonjour from Babolat: Part Trois

    Hi Random, The beam appears to be new, and is boxier than the current Strike on the outside of the hoop, but still a bit kidney bean shaped on the inner portion of the hoop. It will have the metallic paint, but is darker overall. Josh

    Hi danbrenner, I still haven't heard anything official on the new Pure Aero, but my guess is it will be after the laucnh of the Strike VS in January. how far after remains to be seen, but when I hear something, I will let everyone know. Thanks! Josh

    Hi 1990's, Sorry for the late reply, but I was waiting to hear back from the gentleman who works with our tour players.

    Hi Nostradamus, I'm going to have to hold off on making any declarative statements on this for the time being, but should know more in a few weeks.

    Hi Nostradamus, Sorry for the late reply, but I just got back from stringing at Cincinnati. I don't have a firm date yet for the launch of the 2022 Pure Aero family, but should in late September.

    Bonjour from Babolat: Part Trois

    Hi Danbrenner, Unfortunately, no I don't I know there won't be any released this year, and I have not heard any news on when in 2022 they will launch. Everything is still such a mess from covid as far as supply chain and manufacturing, so it's hard to know apparently. I'll let everyone know...

    Hi Bill, No, unfortunately I don't. As I'm sure you can imagine, everything in terms of product testing and development has been pushed back as we do our best to catch up on demand of our current products. I reached out about it recently and was told there will not be any update until the Fall...

    Hi nickl, Sorry for the late reply. Been a long week! Yes, we will be releasing RPM Soft at some point in August.

    The closest frame would be the 2019 Pure Aero. Worse depends on who's using it of course, so give a try to see what you think. Josh

    As far as I'm aware, the Pure Aero Rafa will be the 2019 version for the time being. I do not know when a 2022 version will be released. Josh
