The Blade 98 16x19, serves up control and feel, This version of the Blade 98 18x20 is perfect for the player who wants a solid feeling racquet that delivers pinpoint control on big swings. The Blade 98 18x20 accelerates a little easier than a traditional player’s racquet, but there’s enough weight in the head to give you a meaty swingweight along with decent stability and plow-through. New to this model is Countervail, a material technology integrated into the Braided Basalt/Graphite layup to dampen impact shock. Wilson also gives this model Parallel Drilling which enables the string bed to absorb more vibration and transfer extra energy to the ball. This racket is decidedly softer and more muted feel than is found in the rising crop of stiff, modern player’s racquets. From the baseline this racquet’s dense 16x19 string pattern and relatively compact 98 square head will help keep your biggest swings inside the court. As a result you'll have more confidence when going for big pace and heavy spin. There's also more than enough mass in the upper of the racket to give your shots some serious sting. At net the response is solid and precise. Our playtesters were impressed with how easy it was to block the ball deep or punch the ball for a winner. The Blade 98 18x20 remains a great option for intermediate and advanced ball strikers who want an extremely solid feeling racquet with great control.
