Wilson has updated the Burn 100LS and tweaked a few specs to enhance the racquet's feel and arm friendliness.
Wilson has also updated the cosmetic design of this racquet to be inline with the new Pro Staff and Blade lines, giving it a sleek matte black finish with pops of glossy orange at 3 and 9 o'clock.
This racquet has a slightly thinner beam width at the tip of the racquet which results in this racquet having a lower flex rating than the previous version (69 RA vs 72 RA). This means that the racquet has a "plusher" feel compared to the previous Burn 100LS. The racquet is still equipped with Wilson Spin Effect technology (18 main strings and 16 cross strings) and therefore has plenty of access to spin. A lighter weight version of the Burn 100S, this racquet generates a fast swing and maneuverability for a great mix of power and control.

Countervail is a patented, one-of-a-kind, layered carbon fiber, originally designed for the aerospace industry to dissipate vibrational energy in airplanes and space vehicles. Wilson LABS, the innovation hub at Wilson, has strategically placed precise amounts of the technology into specific areas of each Blade racket frame to give tennis players meaningful and cumulative physiological benefits over time, including maximum energy, particularly in late sets or long matches, and less fatigue. As a result, athletes will have more control over his/her shots and recover from training and matches faster.
Spin Effect Technology is the first racket system that actually increases ball RPM without players changing their swing. The net seems lower and the court feels longer on all your shots.
