Braided Graphite + Basalt: Braided Graphite + Basalt: is an elastic and reactive material combination that improves the flex of a racquet. This evolution of Wilson's BLX technology increases the ball's contact with the strings to provide enhanced feel and greater control.
Parallel Drilling: Provides a consistent, more forgiving string bed response while dramatically increasing the sweet spot.
Amplifeel™: Fine-tuned to each racquet, Amplifeel™ features basalt inserts, customized foam, and a softer buttcap that provides a clean, enhance feel.
Spin Effect™: Spin Effect™ Technology is the first racquet system that actually increases ball RPM without players changing their swing. The net seems lower and the court feels longer on all your shots.
Name says it all, has spin and control. You generate the power. Tried the blade104 also, but it had too much power. Easy to use the 98s on groundstrokes and serves. Easy to maneuver at net. Feels a little light at first, then the balance is good in your hand.
