The Wilson Blade 98 18x20 Countervail features parallel drilling and a new cosmetic in this 2016 edition which provides a larger sweetspot. What is Countervail Technology and what does it do you might ask? Countervail is an all-new material technology, used by NASA for space travel, integrated into the racquet to maximize a player's energy, reduces muscle fatigue and shortening recovery time. It does this by transferring less of the ball's energy into the players body, which decreases the amount of energy you need to expend on each swing. This racquet provides enhanced control and precision for the modern, aggressive game. The Blade 98 18x20 features a denser string pattern for exceptional direction control with a firmer feel.
