With the Steam 99LS Wilson delivers a lively spin monster to players who want a lightning fast option. Like the heavier Steam 99S, this light stick has an open 16x15 string pattern which grabs the ball and loads it with near unbelievable levels of spin. The result is a ball that often appears to be going out but drops sharply inside the lines and jumps off the court. With its very low swingweight the Steam 99LS accelerates rapidly through contact, making it very easy for the player to ratchet up pace or increase the already huge spin potential. Players with flatter mechanics won't be disappointed as this racquet launches the ball at a higher trajectory and provides very easy access to depth. At net this one has the speed and pop for fast exchanges and decisive put-aways. On serves the speed and pop mixes with spin to give developing players the ingredients to hit very effective slices and kickers. All in all, the Steam 99LS is a great option for anyone who wants to combine comfort and maximum spin potential with exceptional maneuverability. Advanced players in search of a heavier more stable feel will find the perfect opportunity for weight customization.
