The Wilson Blade 98S is now equipped with a technology that maximizes a player's energy. Countervail is an all-new material technology integrated into the frame that maximizes a player's energy by reducing muscle fatigue and shortening recovery time. By directing the ball's energy within the frame instead of to the body, Countervail conserves a player's energy on every swing. The 98S also features Wilson's Spin Effect technology, the first racquet system that actually increases ball RPM without players changing their swings. Designed for the players with a big-hitting, aggressive game, the Blade 98S offers the control needed to dictate play and the spin players love today.
