Description

PUT IT IN REVERSE! Limited edition Blade 98 16x19 reversed colour is here! Bold style for a bold racquet.

This edition of the Blade incorporates new FreeFlex technology, the carbon mapping technique that has made the Clash series immensely popular. The technology creates a more flexible frame in different directions depending on the stroke to increase dwell time of the ball on the string bed providing a better feel and excellent control. A thinner beam further improves the feel and flex of the racquet, inspiring players to attack the ball and confidently take big swings without overhitting.

The Blade 16x19 is the most popular in the series due to the more open string pattern to help generate spin and power, the 98 square inch head is geared towards precision players who generate lots of their own power.

  • Tension Range: 50-60 lbs / 23-27 kg
  • String Pattern: 16x19
  • Style #: WR013621
  • Slightly more head-light than last version for better control over racquet head
  • FeelFlex features proprietary carbon mapping strategically placed throughout hoop for additional flexibility and better connected-to-the-ball feel
  • Clean tri-colored design with lime green, black and silver elastic paint
  • Top Grip Taper provides better feel for top-hand grip placement
  • Reduced spec variance (+/- 5.5 g) for added consistency from frame to frame
  • Braided Graphite + Basalt composition improves the flex of a racquet to produce enhanced feel and control
  • Parallel Drilling provides a consistent, more forgiving string bed response
  • Designed for today's big-hitting, aggressive game, the Blade series serves as the top-played franchise on Tour for a reason: commanding feel. Thinner, more flexible beams provide a strong connection and feel for the ball, inspiring competitive players to attack their opposition and control points. Equipped with a variety of string patterns, head sizes and swing weights, this versatile lineup boasts a sharp design for the next generation of hard-hitting players.

Grip size palm measurements for tennis racquets

If you fall somewhere between the measurements, it is recommended to choose the smaller grip size as you can always build the grip size up using an overgrip (for a slight increase) or a grip build-up sleeve (for a half or full size increase). The grip measurements above factor in the pre-installed factory grip.
