Wilson Blade Team 99
Although this racket has a similar weight and balance to the popular Blade 16x19 CV, the Wilson Blade 99 Team Tennis Racquet comes with a firmer, wider beam and a more open string pattern.
The result is greater power and spin (think heavy ball). This racket also has a more even and lively response on off-center contact, giving it a wonderfully crisp and modern feel. On groundstrokes, the Blade Team 99 not only feels explosive, but it also offers a nice balance between speed and stability. It delivers the easy acceleration required for generating power while also having enough mass in the head for redirecting pace or driving the ball through the court.
At the net, the Blade Team 99 feels solid and lively. It doesn't offer the stability of a traditional player's racket but it redirects pace quite well for its weight class. Finally, aggressive servers will find more than enough power and spin to stake control of the point. With the Blade Team 99, Wilson has delivered a light player's racket at an extremely attractive price. Bargain hunters who don't want to sacrifice quality should give this stick a serious look.
