A versatile racquet in the KBlade line, the 98 combines the control of a player's racquet with added forgiveness and pop. Our team found plenty of power and control in this racquet. Weighing in at just over 11 ounces strung, our testers found faster swing speeds to be easily generated. Offered in a 18/20 string pattern like its predecessor, the nBlade, the K Blade delivers accuracy from the baseline. Players at the 4.0+ level should find both forehands and backhands easy to dial in with direction and control. We found spin easy to generate - especially slice. The generous sweetspot makes volleying feel crisp even when striking the ball slightly off center. This is a comfortable stick to wield at net. There's plenty of feel offered in this racquet, which will please players who utilize touch shots. When serving, we found enough power to help get the ball away. However, this racquet has been designed primarily for control. It offers a solid feel, providing consistency of feel and precision from all areas of the court. Best suited to 4.0+ level players.
Note: These racquets do not come with a head cover.
