Elaborated with the decisive help of Roger Federer, the RF97 develops an original model already substantially perfect. The frame is in Graphite/Kevlar, the balance more shifted towards the handle. We are talking about the closest to the technical characteristics of the Swiss champion.
Of course, it is not a racquet for everyone, both for a question of price and for how it was conceived. It weighs 357 grams and therefore requires a trained arm. The frame however will provide splendid responses both in terms of control and power. The precision that it is able to guarantee is practically unmatched.
With the Burn 100LS v4 Wilson has created a spin machine, loaded with speed, precision and power. Intermediate tennis players looking for explosive acceleration and surgical precision will love this model.
With a Spin Effect string pattern, the Burn 100 LS helps you hit spin-laden balls that explode onto the opponent’s court. Made with a Carbon Fiber Graphite, the Burn’s responses are definitely explosive.
This racquet also features Parallel Holes that help the strings better absorb vibrations and transfer more energy to the ball. On forehands, the Burn 100 LS is responsive and powerful, but also incredibly stable for its weight class. It’s also great for topspin players who want to hit heavy balls.
At net, the racquet feels fast, perfect for aggressive play. Overall, Wilson has created a great alternative for intermediate players who want to attack the ball and keep their opponent on the defensive.
Introducing the Wilson Ultra Team! As one of the lightest and fastest members of the Ultra line, this racquet is perfect for beginners or casual tennis players looking for ease of use. It has a 23-26-21mm thick Double Tapered frame, making it explosive, stable and powerful. It’s also fast on shots, weighing in at 297g (strung). On forehands, the speed of this racquet not only makes it easy to set up, but allows players to move it quickly to give their shots more speed and spin. The lightweight also comes in handy when defending and hitting shots on the run or at net. Finally, those looking for a more aggressive game will definitely succeed. Overall, the Ultra Team is a great alternative for tennis players looking for more powerful and precise shots.
With this update to the Blade 98 (18×20), Wilson adds another chapter to one of the most popular classic racquets. As with the previous generation, this racquet combines a sleek, minimalist silhouette with the same velvety finish initially launched with Federer’s Pro Staff RF97 Autograph.
Although Wilson has given this racquet a more headlight-oriented balance than the previous version, higher swing weight is noticeable, thus increasing penetration power as well. In addition to the stiffness of 62RS, the Blade 98 (18×20) features FeelFlex technology, which utilizes Wilson’s Carbon mapping for more stability in twisting while also helping the racquet bend in a way that promotes the modern swing (with more spin and power).
Tennis players who play two-handed backhands will appreciate the long handle that Wilson has added to this generation of Blade. In forehands, this racquet has the feel that has attracted generations of Blade tennis players. Although the 334-RDC’s swingweight is challenging, the effort pays off when it comes to facing a powerful opponent or responding to a strong ball. The 632 sq. cm. headsize and dense 18×20 string pattern allow for predictable, millimeter-accurate trajectories, making it very appealing to powerful players who want to keep the ball in play.
At net, this racquet doesn’t get knocked around, rather it responds with enough touch to address the ball with precision. Aggressive hitters who can handle that kind of weight will be able to hit real bombs with this racquet. On returns of serve, the larger 330 swingweight comes in handy to keep the racquet firm in all phases of play. In conclusion, with some impressive feel improvements, this version of the Blade 98 (18×20) is essential for experienced players looking for a traditional racquet with incredible control and feel. The high booking power is a sweet bonus.
Wilson introduces the new Clash 100, a unique racquet that’s flexible, quick to handle and designed to deliver high levels of spin to the ball while transmitting feel to the wrist. Weighing 295 grams (unstrung) and with a swing weight of 312 RDC, this frame is a great choice for any intermediate player looking for an explosive acceleration in their game.
What makes this racquet special are its ingredients; one of the lowest flex points of any racquet on the market, designed to allow for great ball contact at impact, maximum control and a clear feel at the wrist. According to Wilson, its flexibility is the result of the collaboration of two innovative technologies; the FreeFlex and StableSmart systems, both designed to promote optimal performance without compromising the stability of the structure. In the baseline game, the Clash 100 provides a great blend of comfort and speed. While its ball pocketing ability doesn’t quite match that of the Tour model, this racquet is quick on its feet and allows for explosive acceleration leaving plenty of room to maneuver for any aggressive player looking for spin and fast pace. Its easy maneuverability comes in handy at the net, where defense and volleys are easy and secure. Those who love to hit with wide and precise swings will be rewarded with maximum precision of trajectories, excellent spin and clear sensations of contact with the ball.
