Wilson Steam 99LS Spin Racquet Technologies
|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.
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.
