The updated Wilson Blade 98 (16x19) offers a very lively feel and plenty of spin. It's also quite stable due to a solid swing-weight of 328. This version sports a redesigned Basalt/Graphite frame composition that increases flexibility in key areas and improves ball dwell time on the strings for heightened ball control. Wilson adds Parallel Drilling technology to expand the sweetspot nicely and increase the overall responsiveness on off-center shots. Topspin and slice players will find more than enough spin from the very open 16x19 pattern for greater depth and accuracy on their shots. Net play offers a great blend of head speed, racquet stability and ball feel to give players an overall advantage from any part of the court. Serves benefit tremendously for a deadly combination of power and accuracy giving players an active advantage form the first ball struck. Ultimately, this is a great option for intermediate and advanced players who want a nice balance of power, control, spin, and ball feel. This racquet is compatible with Sony Smart Tennis Sensor technology.
