Raw Speed. Controllable Power. Great feel.
Introducing the Shift 99! With this racquet Wilson releases the official cosmetic version of the Wilson Labs Project Shift 99 300, a prototype released in February of 2023. Developed with extensive feedback from top coaches and elite players, the Shift 99 combines raw speed with spin-friendly precision and great feel. Under the hood, the Shift's graphite fibers have been meticulously 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 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.
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).
