The Wilson Blade 98 16X19 is the most popular frame in the series and is now slightly more top light to give even better control of the racket head.
It introduces FeelFlex technology which is an evolution of the FreeFlex technology developed for the Clash series which uses strategically placed carbon mapping in the frame for enhanced racket flexibility and stability. What does this mean to you? Increased flexibility and more connection to each shot, allowing you to feel the ball fully and rip it back at top speed with more control.
Wilson have used top grip taper to provide a better feel for the top hand placement and they have reduced the spec variance between rackets to provide a more consistent range.
The Braided graphite construction gives a pure classic feel, and Parallel drilling provides a more consistent and forgiving string bed response.
Please be advised that this racket will come strung unless the image displays otherwise.
Please note that all Wilson Blade rackets come without a protective head cover

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