With some updates to the feel, Wilson adds another chapter to the Blade 98S. Like its predecessor, this lively spin monster will give you the tools to hit a very heavy ball. Although it boasts a light and speedy 11 ounce strung weight, this racquet packs a serious punch when swung fast. With its near even balance, there's more than enough mass in the head for counterpunching against pace or driving the ball powerfully through the court. New to this racquet’s layup is Countervail technology, which is a special carbon layer used to minimize impact vibration and arm fatigue. It also comes with the same ultra sleek and silky paint finish found in the Pro Staff series. From the baseline the 98S feels solid and lively. Not only is there is enough power for driving the ball powerfully through the court, the 98S will give you more than enough spin-potential to bring the ball down hard. At net this racquet's near even balance gives it a solid feel at impact, and there’s enough pop to block the ball with depth. Finally, aggressive servers will have the power and spin to cause some damage. All in all Wilson has delivered a fine update to the 98S. Intermediate and advanced players looking for a solid feeling racquet that does not skimp on power or spin should give this Blade a test drive.
