      Comments about Wilson Steam 105S:

      I replaced my Wilson Hammer racket with the Wilson Steam 105S because of tennis elbow problems. The racket design along with the proper size grip and string tension that I needed has allowed me to play as much tennis as I want without anymore elbow pain. I've only played 4 times so far this past week since I bought this racket, however I'm already very satisfied with the experience I've had with it. I've noticed more pop in my serves and confidence with my volleys. Just yesterday...had several aces. Expecting continued improvements with my game: thanks to this racket. It's a good buy and worth the cost.

        Comments about Wilson Steam 105S:

        Wilson Steam 105S is the racquet I have been searching for. It allows me to impart greater spin to the ball, it provides power, and it is head light for good volleys. It reminds me of the old Jack Kramer racqet I learned to play with and this is the feel I always try for when buying a new racquet.

          Definetly provides more pop, pace while increasing control. My serves have more pace and spin and I am getting more in at the same time. Steam's higher weight took some getting used to.

            I am a 4/0 player that wanted more power with great access to spin. I was playing Wilson K3. The 105S is exactly what I was looking for. I had it strung with RPM Blast #17 at 57lbs and it has all the power and control that I hoped for. I have been using it for 4 weeks and my kick serve, topspin lobs and passing shots have all improved.

              If you have spin, you'll get more. Try stringing with Babolat RPM 17. This is a five sided string which will further increase the spin.

                Do you have the LXN 4G S in a reel? Also, where can I find the grommets for the 105s.

                  A:

                  We do not have a LXN 4GS in a reel. The 105s Grommets can be specialty ordered through us. Please call (866) 860-1416 to place an order over the phone with a customer service specialist.

              • Q:

                what string and tension is recommended for the Wilson Steam 105S?

                  A:

                  Wilson actually recommends two different strings. For spin they recommend Luxilon 4G (available in two gauges: 1.30mm http://www.holabirdsports.com/luxilon-4g-130011692-pkg.html and 1.25mm http://www.holabirdsports.com/luxilon-4g-125011691-pkg.html). For durability, Wilson recommends Luxilon 4G S (http://www.holabirdsports.com/luxilon-4g-s-141011711-pkg.html). Those two Luxilon strings are both very durable and offer plenty of spin potential but you can--of course--install any string that you would like. The only caveat I would mention is that if you hit with a fair amount of spin, it's probably a good idea to stick with a polyester string. Because the Steam 105S has a very open string pattern that allows lots of movement, softer strings will tend to wear fairly quickly. The manufacturer's recommended tension range is 57-67 pounds.
