Got Spin? We do! It's called the Blade 98 S. With this racquet, Wilson turns one of the game's premier control racquets into a lightening fast spin machine. Thanks to Wilson's 18x16 Spin Effect string pattern, this racquet grips the ball tightly before snapping it out of the stringbed with impressive force and tons of spin. From the baseline our TW playtesters found the Blade 98 S to play lighter and faster than the standard Blade. This one explodes rapidly through the hitting zone, making it even more dangerous in the hands of an aggressive baseliner who favors heavy topspin. Thanks to the Amplifeel Technology and Basalt layup, the Blade 98 S has the same great feel of the standard version, a fact that becomes apparent on touch volleys. The speedy and spin friendly response provide easy access to power on serves along with some heavy action on slices and kickers. Finally, aggressive service returners should love how fast and easy this one moves under pressure. All in all, the Blade 98 S is sure to provide some serious spin and explosiveness to the modern player who wants a lighter, faster control racquet.

BLX

BL=Basalt. Basalt is a natural volcanic rock. It can be used in manufacturing where it is made into fine gold fibers with incredible vibration resistance. These new fibers are woven longitudinally with [K}arophite Black to create one of the most advanced composites in the industry.
Amplifeel

Amplifeel handle technology provides an even cleaner and enhanced feel in the racquet. Amplifeel also allows for a more customized handle system providing additional handle comfort to further support maximizing the feel in each racquet and player segment.
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.
