Back by popular demand and with an updated cosmetic, the Wilson Steam 99S is one of the original Spin Effect Technology racquets and definitely packs a punch. With its strung weight of +11 ounces and very open string pattern, this racquet can deliver blistering pace that's loaded with spin. Amplifeel 360 is Wilson's full Basalt expanded handle for enhanced feel and it really comes through in the Steam series. Players will notice tremendous feedback when striking the ball that helps to harness the spin and make adjustments easily. Parallel Drilling of the stringbed provides a consistent and even more forgiving response that dramatically increases the sweet spot. All of this forgiveness and power does not impact the stability of the racquet. When absorbing heavy hitters or volleys at net, the Steam 99S can still take a punch and send it right back with interest. While the 16x15 string pattern is very open, control is still readily available whether you're hitting baseline strokes, volleys, drop shots or on serve. As an added bonus, player's that string their own racquets will love how easy this racquet is to string and weave!
