The new Blade 98 (18x20) v7, Wilson has taken the Blade line back to its crisp, clean and precise feel. Wilson has removed Countervail from the Blade and replaced it with FeelFlex technology. FeelFlex has put the flex of the 98 strung at a 61 flex rating. The Blade v7 also comes with some slight changes. This new edition comes slightly more head light and with a slightly thinner,tapered beam in the throat. The addition of FeelFlex allows for a more comfortable experience and better ball-lag-time on the stringbed.
Our playtesters noted the increased feel immediately. The introduction of FeelFlex was noted in a subtle, yet noticeable change to hitting dynamics. Ball impacts are crisp, but thanks to FeelFlex, not nearly as jarring on the arm. Dwell time isn't as great as the Clash line(which has an even lower flex rating), which some of our testers appreciated.
Any big hitter looking for precision and feel will appreciate the change to the Blade. This racquet is an excellent choice for intermediate to advanced level players aiming for precision.
