The Blade provides modern control for aggressive players. Upgraded with Parallel Drilling for a larger sweet spot and Braided Graphite + Basalt for even greater feel on every shot, the Blade 98 16×19 more open string pattern has a forgiving feel and crisp responsiveness.
- Amplifeel Technology: A softer handle, made possible
by enhanced foam that conforms better to a players grip, yet
made stable by graphite and basalt planks that also improve
feel. A rounded butt-cap design gives the racquet handle a more
tapered feel that provides greater comfort for players who grip
the handle closer to or on the butt-cap.
- Braided Graphite Basalt: In this revolutionary new layup,
Wilson braids Basalt with carbon graphite fiber throghout the entire
frame. This is the first time Basalt has been braided. Since Basalt
is so elastic, it allows the racquet’s hoop to flex in ways that
improve feel, hang time and control.
- Parallel Drilling: Provides a consistent, more forgiving
stringbed response while dramatically increasing the sweetspot.
