Wilson Blade 98 (16x19) CV Tennis Racket - Black [Frame Only]
Stunning Series Noir Limited Edition. Control frame with 16x19 string pattern for a modern and forgiving feel. Enhanced with countervail.
The vastly improved Blades are back with a brand new minimalistic yet bold aesthetic. Known for their superb control and feel, the Blade range has stood the test of time, becoming the choice of numerous ATP and WTA professionals including Serena Williams, Milos Raonic and Laura Robson.
The biggest improvement this time around is the addition of Countervail, a material technology integrated into the frames of the racket. When making contact with the ball, Countervail directs the ball’s energy within the frame rather than the players arm. This leads to reduced muscle fatigue and recovery time as you spend less energy every swing. Most impressively, the technology - also used by NASA to maximise energy during flight – does not affect the feel, flex and control brought by the braided graphite and basalt in the frame.
Designed for attackers, the thin beam racket offers tremendous control, and parallel drilling makes a return to give Blade fans the response off the strings they love and expect. This 304g 16x19 model will suit modern intermediate to advanced level players.
