  • Q:

    Hi Guys,
    I bought the blade 98 a few months ago and I want to buy an extra raquet. But I´m confused beacuse the one that I already have describes the balance as: 6 pts HL and the online stores describes their raquets as 2pts HL. Do you know if those are different raquets?

      It is difficult to say without knowing exactly which version of the Wilson Blade you have. There have been several versions of this frame and the specs do vary somewhat between versions. We tried to locate your previous order in our system to see exactly which version of the Blade you had, but we were unable to find your racquet order. It is important to keep in mind that some manufacturers put "unstrung" specifications on their frames while some put "strung" specifications on their frames. There is a fairly significant difference between the two as string can add about half an ounce overall to a racquet's weight and impact the balance as well. The Wilson Blade 98 lists unstrung racquet specs. When available, we list strung specs on our website. These specs are usually from a third party that independently measures a sample of each racquet. Our site does not list balance in points head light or head heavy, but it is fairly easy to calculate as 1 point is equivalent to 1/8". If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at (866) 860-1416 or info@holabirdsports.com
