Used by Milos Raonic, Gael Monfils and perhaps most famously, Serena Williams, the new Blade delivers control for the big-hitting and aggressive modern game. Upgraded with Parallel Drilling for a larger sweetspot and Braided Graphite + Basalt for enhanced feel, it belongs in Wilson’s Attacker category for players who attack the ball early to dictate play inside the baseline.

The Wilson Blade 98S arrives as the most powerful Blade to date in a lighter weight with Spin Effect Technology, which allows for more height over the net and increases margin for error.

Parallel Drilling provides a consistent, more forgiving string bed response while dramatically increasing the sweet spot. Together with Double Holes, which works by increasing the diameter of the grommet holes so the string bed is allowed to flex more when impacted by the ball, it results in a smoother feel and added power.

The Wilson Blade is constructed with Braided Graphite + Kevlar for a pure, solid and consistent feel that Wilson racket users have enjoyed for decades. It also dampens vibration and enhances touch and control.

The Blade series also benefits from Wilson’s renowned Amplifeel 360 and Amplifeel technology, which provides enhanced feel with increased racket power and reduced weight. It features a full Basalt expanded handle and a new shock absorbing engineered urethane polymer.

The Blade 98S also comes with Wilson’s new Spin Effect technology, which is a complete racket technology and a ground-breaking new advancement that allows players to produce significantly more spin without changing their swing. Wilson Spin Effect Rackets can add over 200 RPMs of rotation on every shot, giving 2 inches more net clearance and causes the ball to drop quicker, which in turn extends the court and gives players 12 inches more margin for error.

The Wilson Blade 98S 18x16 is compatible with the new Sony Smart Tennis Sensor, which records accurate shot data alongside real-time video.

Measuring Your Grip Size

Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.

Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:

Grip Size
USA (inches)
4 1/8
4 2/8
4 3/8
4 4/8
4 5/8

Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
