Wilson Blade 98s 18x16 Countervail - 2016

The Wilson Blade 98s 18 X 16 Countervail offers even better feel than its predecessor. Spin is outstanding as always, light and well-balanced with exceptional feel it still offers plenty of controllable power with a big swing.At only 11.1 ounces strung, generating massive head speed is no problem. Being nearly even-balanced, there's plenty mass in the head for solid stability on every shot or counter-stroke. New construction tech called Countervail technology eliminates even more shock by using a layer of carbon to arrest any unwanted vibrations before they reach your arm. The Blade 98s 19 X 16 also features the ultra slick paint finish found in the newest Pro Staff series. Like its predecessor, this "s" model generates huge spin thanks to its 18x16 Spin Effect string pattern. Wilson also added Parallel Drilling technology which absorbs stringbed impact shock and transfers ball impact energy more efficiently for more power with less effort.Baseline play with the Blade 98s feels solid, lively, and always under control. Net play with this racquet's near even balance gives it a solid feel at impact, yet is light enough to keep maneuverability very high. The serve also benefits hugely from the weight/balance/headspeed/spin equation this model solves. Wilson has delivered a worthy improved update to the previous Blade 98s. This model is well suited for Intermediate and advanced players looking for a solid feeling moderate head size racquet that offers great spin, feel, headspeed, control, and stability at impact.
