Take your game to a new level with Wilson's all-new Blade 98 (16x19) v7 tennis racquet. The 7th version of the most popular frame within the Blade family gets a brand new tri-colored design to go with state-of-the-art innovations for next-level performance.

The Blade 98 brings awesome added performance to the court thanks to some excellent updates from Wilson. This 7th version is more slightly head-light than the previous version & includes "FeelFlex" technology, an evolution to Clash's "FreeFlex" technology, which Wilson has implemented a proprietary carbon mapping strategically placed throughout the hoop of racquet for better connected-to-the-ball feel and additional flexibility. Wilson has also refined the top of the grip with an all-new "Top Grip Taper" which provides a more comfortable top-hand grip placement. Wilson continues the use of Braided Graphite + Basalt composition which improves the flex of the racquet to produce enhanced feel and control. Parallel Drilling also continues which helps provide a consistent, more forgiving string bed response.

Overall, the all-new 2019 Blade 98 (16x19) v7 features that 98 square-inch head, with a comfortable 11.4 ounce-strung weight to go with a more opened 16x19 string pattern -- all adding up to that traditional feeling racquet tailored towards that advanced player that places a premium on control & feel.


For Optimal String Performance Wilson Recommends:

  • Comfort: Wilson Sensation Plus
  • Control: Luxilon Smart

If selecting tension "Below Range", please note at checkout within the comments field your desired tension value.

Excellent racquet! Nice feel on topspin shots, slice & drives..I’m primarily a baseline so I love the depth and spin I can generate with this racquet - handles volleys with pop & control, I highly recommend this racquet

Having owned the past two incarnations of the Blade I can say this one is my favorite. Similar, but not quite as stiff as the previous model allowing for increased feel around the net. I also find it easier to impart topspin and hold the ball that fraction longer needed for a slow rolling pass. The increased flex also aids the slice serve, again giving me that extra racquet/ball dwell connection. Great frame!

This is a nice racquet. But I don't love it. Part of the problem was the build up about the new tech. Frankly, I like the feel of my blade with countervail better. The old racquet has a slightly deader feel, which for me translates into more comfort with faster swings. It feels like a natural extension of my arm. The new racquet has a more lively feel. Not jittery or bad necessarily, but just not as comfy. It's a very subtle difference, but my next racquet will be countervail.

Exceptional player control racket. More forgiving on the arm than the previous version. The extended grip for 2 hand backhand is a plus. Great all around racket for those who like control, touch and feel.

Perfect weight. Buttery flex. Used the Pure Drive and Wilson Ultra 100 CV for a long time. I was having issues keeping the ball in the court bc there was so much power in those frames. The level of control and feel I had when demoing the Blade v7 was mind blowing. It’s an outstanding racquet if you can produce you’re own power and are looking to paint the lines on command.
