Offering big spin and improved feel, Wilson delivers an impressive update to the Blade 98S. Like the previous generation, this one comes with an open 18x16 string pattern, making it ideal for those who want easy access to spin but also prefer the added directional control that comes with 18 main strings. New to this version is a braided, more elastic Graphite/Basalt construction. The result is a racket whose hoop flexes more at impact, giving it slightly better feel and ball pocketing than the previous version. Wilson also expands the sweetspot with its Parallel Drilling. This technology reduces the friction between string and racket in key areas of the frame so the strings can absorb more shock. From the baseline the 98S rewards big swings with penetrating depth and explosive of spin. Our playtest team was impressed by how rapidly this 11 ounce racquet accelerated through contact, a feature that comes in handy when trying to crank forehand winners on the dead run. On serves this stick shines on slices and kickers, and there's plenty of heat available for those who can swing it fast. Ultimately, the 98S is a strong option for the player who wants a very spin-friendly racket that has decent feel and moves fast.
