Stringing information for :

The Wilson Blade 98 16x19 adds some extra bite and power to the Blade franchise. Featuring Amplifeel technology, the Blade 16x19 comes with enhanced ball feel. Topspin players will likely appreciate the easy spin from the open string pattern. In addition to spin, our playtesters noticed a real bump in power over the 18x20 version. The near even balance results in some nice plow-through, adding pace and stability to groundstrokes. At net this racquet shines, offering a response that is as solid as it is fast. The open pattern and lively feel are also an asset on serves, where spin and pace come easy. With its higher swingweight (331 RDC), this one is best suited to stronger 4.0+ players who have good control but want to turn up the heat!
