Wilson launches a special edition prototype in advance of the official summer release. Limited quantities
Introducing the latest creation from Wilson's racquet lab, the Project Shift 99 300. Developed with extensive feedback from top coaches and elite players, Wilson has made a limited quantity of samples available ahead of the official cosmetic release this summer. Specs include a 99 square inch head with a 16x20 string pattern and 11.2 ounce strung weight. Under the hood, the Shift's graphite fibers have been engineered to help the racquet bend in ways that compliment the vertical mechanics of the modern game (think spin). In addition to its impressive pocketing, the Shift's zippy 320 swingweight makes it great for hitting shots on the run or reacting quickly at net. All in all, this is a great option for intermediate and advanced players who want a versatile modern player's racquet that doesn't skimp on feel. The cool limited edition cosmetic is a nice bonus.
Technical Note: According to Wilson, this racquet has been designed to be torsionally stiff (for added stability and power when driving the ball) and laterally flexible (for increased dwell time on vertical mechanics - think spin).
