For 2017 Wilson adds a Lime Green Limited Edition lightweight Blade 98L. A great addition for the player looking for a lighter weapon with more headspeed and ultra maneuverability at the net. The Lime Green Limited Edition will get you noticed on court and off! Featuring the Braided Graphite+Basalt composition for enhanced elasticity and excellent feel, Parallel Drilling technology to increase the sweet spot size and add more stability on off-center shots, and is also X2 ergo ready (inserts not included). It is also ready for Sony Smart Sensor Technology for electronic metrics on every aspect of your play sent directly to your smart phone. This racquet is not as powerful as it's heavier brothers, but still still offers plenty of controllable power and excellent spin thanks to the wide 16 X 19 stingbed pattern. Net play is fantastic and stable, thanks to a 1 point headlight balance. Ground-strokes are aided by excellent headspeed and the slightly headlight balance that results in a very solid feel at impact for a racquet of only 10.7 ounces strung. This is a great frame for beginning, intermediate, and junior players. The Wilson Blade 98L marks another fine addition to the Blade family of performance racquets. It offers light weight, fantastic maneuverability, excellent stability, large sweet spot, topnotch spin, exceptional ball feel, low shock, and controllable power that will suit a wide array of players and game styles.

Braided Graphite + Basalt: In this unique composition structure, Wilson braids Basalt with carbon graphite fiber throughout the entire frame for a softer more elastic fee.This is the first time Basalt has been successfully braided into frame construction. The added elasticity of Basalt allows the racquet's head to flex in ways that improve ball feel, ball dwell time on the strings...resulting in much improved control.

X2 ergo: Allowing the customization of the handle/grip shape to accommodate two-handed backhand players. (Inserts not included on this model, can be special ordered)

Parallel Drilling: For a larger sweet spot and improved more forgiving stringbed response on off-center shots.
