Wilson Blade 98 (18x20) Tennis Racquet

$174 when buying 2+!
The Wilson Blade 98 18x20 updates the Blade 98 BLX with the improved feel of Amplifeel handle technology. Continues the traditional feel in the same vein as the Six One 95 BLX, but in a lighter, more maneuverable package. A 21mm flat beam and 98 square inch headsize provide solid feel and control for intermediate to advanced players with a faster swing. A versatile performer from all points on the court and ideal for a player seeking a denser 18x20 string pattern for added stringbed stiffness. Continues to provide excellent frame feedback offered by basalt fiber (BLX) technology. Also available in a 16x19 string pattern.

For Optimal String Performance Wilson Recommends:
  • Power: Wilson NXT Tour
  • Control: Wilson NXT Control

Please Note: Wilson does not include a cover with this racquet.

What is BLX?
Basalt is a natural volcanic rock used in manufacturing and made into fine and ultra-fine gold fibers. Basalt fibers are environmentally friendly and superior to other fibers in terms of thermal stability, sound insulation, vibration assistance and durability. With the new BLX line, Basalt fibers are woven longitudinally with the innovating [K]arophite Black to create the most advanced composite ever in the industry. Players will find the ultimate in frequency reduction while retaining the performance of carbon fiber in terms of lightness, responsiveness, stability and rigidity.

Basalt added into racquets filters out unwanted frequencies (i.e vibrations) that reach the hand to deliver a clean feedback and sensation for the perfect feel players demand.

5 Stars The blade is my weapon of choice

I've used a ton of racquets in the past and keep coming back to this one- the perfect amount of control and power plus they really dialed in the feel on this 2013 version- put a nice thin gauge poly to bring out the spin and you have yourself a real weapon! Wouldn't change a thing- the cosemetics are great as well! Highly Recommended

I love the feel of this racket. It has allowed me to place the ball well and go for the lines. The size of the frame took some getting used to since I had always used larger frames in the past.
