Aggressive, precise ball-strikers will appreciate the feel and torsional stability of this Wilson tennis racket. It has all the features and specs of our Blade 98 16x19 v8 with a design inspired by Roland-Garros. The main appeal lies in the frame layup, which accommodates the modern, vertical swing path common to competitive players. FORTYFIVE° increases both the flexibility and stability of the frame to lend supreme feel for the ball on every shot.
Grommet construction provides a consistent, more forgiving string bed response while dramatically increasing the sweet spot.
Patent-protected frame layup produces more connected-to-the-ball feel while better complementing the more modern, vertical swing path. Material increases both flexibility and stability without compromise through the swing.
Elastic and reactive material combination improves the flex of a racket to increase ball contact with the strings for enhanced feel and greater control.
Tapered grip lends better feel for top-handed grip placement on two-handed backhand.
Carbon fiber handle extends to directly connect with end cap for improved feel and enhanced torsional stability.
Increased string flex yields a larger sweet spot and produces longer dwell time on the string bed.
