These Wilson tennis rackets, the Blade 98S V8 feature Spin Effect Technology as well as the new Feel Flex Technology, in a control racket built for the modern game.
Reputable for its unique Spin Effect string pattern, the Blade 98S v8 evolves its design and layup to amplify the wow factor with every swing. First, the design: thanks to an incredibly fascinating color-shifting matte finish, this racket is able to morph between shades of green and copper depending on how the sun reflects. Second, the technology: FORTYFIVE° and DirectConnect team up to produce increased flexibility and stability for enhanced connected-to-the-ball feel. Perfect for players flashing the modern, vertical swing path common in today's competitive landscape, the Blade 98S v8 should be the racket of choice for anyone seeking supreme feel and appealing design with easy access to spin.
FeelFlex technology comes from the clash series which features carbon mapping placed in strategic places on the frame for enhanced flexibility and stability.
With the new 18x16 string pattern, Amplifeel handle and perfect swing weight, this racket allows you to control your power. The 2022 version of the Blade 98S tennis racquets are ideal for players looking to control the game and their opponents with heavy shots.
The Wilson Blade 98S V8 (295g) is a control tennis racket for the modern, aggressive game. These Blade rackets are designed for hard-hitting, attacking players that want a traditional-feeling racquet to maximise control and spin. The latest version is vastly improved due to the FreeFlex technology for increased flexibility, while the black matte finish adding with the striking green colour makes this racquet stand out on court.
Spin Effect Technology is a ground-breaking advancement that allows players to produce significantly more spin without changing their swing. Racquets with this technology can add over 200 RPMs of rotation on every shot, providing two more inches in net clearance, as well as causing the ball to drop quicker, allowing for 12 inches more margin for error. This is the 2022 model of the Wilson Blade 98S V8 tennis racket.
