Product Description

The 2017 Blade 101L racquet features the new design DNA for Wilson performance tennis racquets.

This design includes a simple, bold, and clean aesthetic that features a specially engineered, high performance paint never used in the tennis industry before called Black Velvet. This matte paint provides a smooth, soft, light-absorbing finish Wilson created to significantly improve the "feel," or tactile experience, a player has when the racquet is in his/her hands.

This new dimension of "feel" is a unique innovation in the performance tennis racquets space.

The racquet also features strong electric green accents, a signature look from the Blade franchise, at the three and nine o'clock positions on the racquets frame.

The Blade 98 racquet is constructed with the latest racquet technology from Wilson LABS, the innovation hub at Wilson, including a revolutionary material called Countervail®.  With Countervail in a tennis racquet, players feel less fatigue, recover quicker and experience better control - without sacrificing stiffness, feedback, or feel.

Countervail, developed by Materials Sciences Corporation for NASA, utilizes a patented, state-of-the-art carbon fiber architecture. By integrating Countervail directly into a racquets construction, players are provided the same performance and feel of a traditional racquet, yet with less vibration energy from a shot absorbed into a player's arm. Countervail is only available in tennis racquets manufactured by Wilson.
