Product Description

New for 2016/17 Wilson has updated the Blade 98S with a stunning new paint job and introduced the new Countervail technology. 

Like its predecessor, this racquet hits heavy topspin thanks to its 18x16 Spin Effect string pattern kicking the ball up off the court with absolute ferocity. Although it boasts a light and speedy strung weight, this racquet packs a serious punch when swung fast. With its near even balance, there's more than enough mass in the head for counterpunching against pace or driving the ball powerfully through the court.

New to this racquet’s design apart from an ultra sleek and silky paint finish found in the Pro Staff series is the new Countervail technology, which is a special carbon layer used to minimize impact vibration and arm fatigue. Wilson also gives this model Parallel Drilling technology which helps the stringbed absorb impact shock and transfer more energy to the outgoing shot. From the baseline the 98S feels solid and lively. 

Not only is there is enough power for driving the ball powerfully through the court, the 98S will give you more than enough spin-potential to bring the ball down hard. At net this racquet's near even balance gives it a solid feel at impact, and there’s enough pop to block the ball with depth. Finally, aggressive servers will have the power and spin to cause some damage.
