Wilson adds another chapter to the most spin-friendly member of the Blade family! It's called the Blade 98S 18x16 v8 and it will enable you to load the ball with heavy spin. For 2021, Wilson keeps the revolutionary layup technology that was originally used in the v7 series. It’s now called FortyFive and, in addition to increasing stability, it helps the racket bend in ways that compliment the modern game. For this update, Wilson also introduces Direct Connect Technology which fuses the butt cap directly to the carbon fiber portion of the handle for added stability. Additional updates include Wilson’s new Chameleon Paint which activates subtle color changes under different viewing angles and light conditions. Like previous generations of this racket, the 98S v8 has an 18x16 Spin Effect string pattern, giving it an unmistakeable boost in spin-potential.
Intermediate and advanced players looking for high levels of spin, precision and feel should give this racket a serious look!
