Darkness calls with the Blade 98 16x19 v8's limited edition all-black design paired with exceptional control properties suitable for competitive intermediate to advanced players.

At 98 square inches, the slightly smaller headsize brings a tighter sweet spot with increased control potential for players able to consistently hit the sweet spot. The open string pattern enhances string movement for easier access to spin and inducing some trampoline effect for increased power generation. The racquet's weight is heavier than average which grants a stable experience for powerful groundstrokes and impactful return of serves while shots outside of the sweet spot benefit from a reduction of unwanted torque and an increase in power generation. The headlight balance of this racquet further enhances a dynamic game's power and touch with faster racquet head speed for improved spin and power generation paired with quick and decisive volleys. The racquet is also quite flexible allowing for a longer dwell-time (the time the ball is in contact with the strings) and therefore an increased feel for the ball.

Wilson has updated the Blade series with some key technologies: FORTYFIVE, first used in the Clash series as FreeFlex, is a material construction process that increases the flexibility and stability of the racquet while DirectConnect fuses the handle directly to the buttcap which further enhances stability.

If you're a competitive player looking for a racquet to bring exceptional control and feel to an all-court game, you should try this racquet.
