At a relatively low weight, this racket is perfectly weighted for strong beginners and intermediates. It should also work very well for the junior player who is looking to transition into an adult performance frame. In addition to its lively response, this racket's 99 square inch head gives it a wonderfully precise and predictable response. The result is greater confidence when swinging for power or selecting ambitious targets. There is also huge spin potential thanks to the open 16x18 string pattern. From the baseline the Blade Team 99 Lite feels fast, accurate and comfortably crisp. Full swings deliver impressive pop, making it easy to control the point. The open 16x18 string pattern will not only help you load the ball with spin, but it sends the ball higher, resulting in easy depth.
