Wilson has given the Blade 98L the CAMO treatment and the result is a bold, but still slick and classy looking racquet that both adults and juniors are sure to love.
The lightest member of the Blade family the Blade 98L is an easy swinging control oriented racquet that will appeal to intermediate and advanced players that are looking for an extremely versatile frame. At 10.1 ounces unstrung, the Blade 97L is light enough to allow racquet head speed to be generated with ease and be maneuverable from all areas of the court, but that has enough mass to make sure the racquet remains stable. The open 16x19 string pattern means spin is easy to come by. A balance (4 points head light) that is more evenly balanced than the heavier members in the Blade 98L ensures that the head of the racquet does twist at impact. Adding to the impressive levels of control that this racquet possess. A great racquet choice for players that are looking for a lightweight, control racquet that brings great spin potential and high levels of stability to the table. Also a top choice for competitive junior players..
