Introducing the Blade 98L v6racquet! Like the 2016 version, this racquet offers the improving intermediate player a user-friendly entry point into the time-tested performance of the Blade franchise. In addition to featuring the same Uncontaminated Design and velvety paint finish that was original launched with Federer's Pro Staff 97RF, this stick comes at an incredible price, making it an incredible value.
In addition to this racquet's excellent control and feel, the Blade 98L also plenty of spin available thanks to its grippy 16x19 string pattern. To help the strings absorb more shock and transfer greater power to the ball, Wilson has given this model Parallel Drilling technology. At under 11 ounces strung, this racquet comes around faster than the heavier Blade models but it still manages to deliver great feel. This fact will help improving players generate the stroke speed required for pace and spin. The high level of maneuverability also makes it easier for you to retrieve balls on the run or flick winners when pulled off the court. With its near even balance, there's not only enough mass in the head to stabilize the racquet at impact (see control and comfort), but you'll find it easier to drive the ball through the court (see power). At net the 98L will give you the speed to react quickly or pounce on floaters. Although this stick doesn't have the solid feel and plow-through of the heavier Blade modes, it should work very well for the rising player who wants a little extra maneuverability. All in all, this version of the Blade 98L is simply ideal for the rising player who is looking to hit with more accuracy. The great price makes it hard to beat.
