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.

Dual Taper Beam:

Wilson's varying width of a racquet's cross-section. From a side view, the cross-section of a Dual Taper Beam racquet varies from thin-to-thick-to thin in the racquet's head-to-shoulder-to-handle regions respectively. This tapered design concentrates racquet stiffness in the primary area where the racquet bends during ball contact.
Amplifeel 360

Provides a superior, enhanced feel while increasing racquet power and reducing weight with a full Basalt expanded handle and a new shock-absorbing engineered urethane polymer. The full Basalt handle filters out unwanted vibrations and transmits a cleaner feel, giving the player a heightened sense of the ball. The specially engineered urethane absorbs some of the shock for more of an arm-friendly feel.

Spin Effect Technology (S.E.T.)

Using fewer cross strings than main strings, this technology allows the main strings to deflect more for maximum snapback. The result is massive spin punctuated by balls that dive very sharply. This is the first racquet system that actually increases ball RPM without players needing to radically change their swing speed.
