Aggressive, precise ball-strikers will appreciate the feel and torsional stability of this Wilson tennis racket. It has all the features and specs of our Blade 98 16x19 V8 with a design inspired by Roland-Garros. The main appeal lies in the frame layup, which accommodates the modern, vertical swing path common to competitive players. FORTYFIVE° increases both the flexibility and stability of the frame to lend supreme feel for the ball on every shot.
