Product Description

New for 2016/17 Wilson presents the latest upgrade to the legendary Blade series - Wilson Blade 98 16x19 Countervail!

New to this model is Countervail technology, which uses a special carbon layer to enhance the already impressive dampening provided by the braided Basalt/Graphite layup. The overall result, according to Wilson, is increased arm-protection and less muscle fatigue. Thanks to its Parallel Drilling technology, this racquet’s string bed is better able to absorb vibration and transfer extra energy to the ball. Wilson has given it the ultra sleek and silky paint finish found in the new Pro Staff series. 

On groundstrokes the Blade 98 16x19 delivers a smooth feel and controllable power. Big swings are rewarded with penetrating depth, and the high spin-potential delivers phenomenal command over the ball’s trajectory and depth. Although this stick boasts a speedy weight, there’s enough mass in the head to keep the racquet steady when trading heavy balls or redirecting the pace of a big serve. The solid feel continues at net where the Blade packs enough punch to finish points with a bang. Aggressive servers will find enough precision to target the corners of the box with pace and spin.
