"The Wilson BLX Blade 98S is an absolute spin machine! With the higher number of main strings, players get a chance to put extra RPM on the ball to push opponents further back from the baseline. The open string pattern also lends to a more forgiving string bed that increases power compared to the 18x20 racquet. With a relatively light frame weight, this racquet is very maneuverable and easy to get into position at net. The frame composition is made up of Basalt/BLX (a natural volcanic rock), which has been combined with fine gold fibers and Karophite Black for incredible vibration resistance. With this updated technology you get a much smoother feel with cleaner feedback from this version of the Blade series. Amplifeel in the handle is made up of Basalt strips that help to provide you with very clean and consistent feel when hitting the ball.
