Description
The Wilson Steam 99 LS takes the ground-breaking Spin Effect Technology of the Steam 99S to a lighter, more maneuverable frame. Amplifeel 360 increases power with optimum feel and Double Holes enlarges the sweet spot. The Steam 99 LS offers a versatile, very spin friendly 16x15 open string pattern that appeals to a wide array of players. The Spin Effect Technology permits additional string movement, increasing the RPM of every shot! 24/22mm dual tapered beam design, spin oriented 16x15 string pattern, 10.3 oz. strung weight, and a 99 square inch head for forgiveness. Continued use of Basalt fiber (BLX) technology for improved frame feedback, continuing to feature classic feel in the same tradition as the previous-generation BLX models. Ideal for the intermediate to advanced player who prefers a nice blend of pop but with the added spin and control from this new string pattern.

For Optimal String Performance Wilson Recommends:
  • Spin: Wilson RipSpin
  • Durability: Luxilon 4G
  • Feel: Wilson Ultimate Duo Hybrid

What a surprise! I currently play with a BLX Pro Tour (Pro Staff 6.1si before that) and was extremely skeptical about this racquet since it isn't in the "player stick" spec range. It's extremely light and a lot less flexible than the traditional player stick and it shouldn't be a racquet I am interested in owning. WRONG!!!! This stick is amazing. Extremely light and maneuverable and fits my hard and fast swing almost perfectly. I may add some weight to the top of the frame when playing against players with faster pace just to give the frame a little more stability but this frame stock is extremely fun and playable. I could put volleys wherever I wanted and could flick the groundstrokes effortlessly and put the ball deep in the court with lots of spin. Serves suffered a little with less pace because of the ultra light weight but I could place the ball in the service box wherever I needed it to go. If you are a player with a traditional player's stick (12 oz, head light, flexible frame) I would en

GREAT racquet

The top spin I get from this racquet is wicked good. The power I am able to generate with little effort is awesome and has really helped step up my game!

Nice lightweight racquet. Easy to handle and create racquet head speed. Be prepared to re string often or to change strings as with the open 16x15 pattern they break often. I used NXT 17 for comfort and feel, but they've lasted only about two weeks playing three times per week over the two months since I switched to this racquet.
