Got Spin? We do! It's called the Blade 98S BOLD! With this racket, Wilson delivers an impressive spin machine to intermediate and advanced players. Although it has similar specs to the Blade 98S (18x16) Countervail, this version does not have Countervail, giving it crisper feel with more direct ball feedback. Thanks to Wilson's 18x16 Spin Effectstring pattern, the 98S grips the ball tightly before snapping it out of the stringbed loaded with spin. From the baseline this stick delivers an impressive combination of spin, comfort and precision. It combines a 21mm straight beam with a braided graphite/Basalt layup, giving it the great feel and pocketing we've come to expect from the Blade franchise. In addition to its solid feel against pace, the 98S is good at hitting high arching balls that drop hard and explode off the court. With its 325 RDC swingweight, it has enough mass to get the ball moving effectively through the court. The 98S BOLD also performs well at net where it moves fast and feels solid when blocking the ball deep into opposing territory.
