This perennially popular racket has been given a serious update by Wilson.
The Blade 98 has been fitted with Countervail technology, which decreases vibration and reduces arm fatigue in play. The braided Basalt/Graphite layup further improves dampening, while the Parallel Drilling technology means that the string bed is far better at absorbing vibration to transfer energy to the ball.
The 16×19 string pattern of this racket offers more power and spin than the 18×20 version, without jeopardising precision and control.
Finally, Wilson have updated this Blade 98 version with a modern, silky paint finish that is more often found in the Pro Staff series of rackets.
