Replacing the popular Juice series, the new Ultra series is poised to be just as successful. The Wilson Ultra 97 is a welcome change from the Juice line as it better bridges the gap between the more control oriented frames Wilson offers. The 97 square inch head size results in a good size sweet spot with ample power and feel. Wilson’s Parallel Drilling process increases the power and also yields an increase in feel and comfort on the string bed. BLX is being replaced withHigh Performance Carbon Fiber in a new, unique frame construction with the outer profile of the frame being rounded and the inner profile being a triangular shape to give the racquet better aerodynamic properties. The frame’s weight of 11.4oz (strung) gives it enough mass to hit heavy deep shots as well as remain stable when absorbing the pace from big hitters. The slightly head light balance of the frame ensures solid maneuverability when venturing to the net for volleys. The Amplifeel 360 handle system is also replaced with CushionFoam, which softens impact for optimal dampening and shock absorption.
