Description

The Wilson US Open Blade 98 v8 16x19 Tennis Racquet celebrates Americas major. This model features the same specs and technology as the Blade 98 16x19 v8. Wilson's patent protected FORTYFIVE° layup makes the Blade a perfect match for the more vertical swing plane in today's modern game. The racquet is again focused on control and feel, with a good balance of stability and flexibility. The cosmetic features a green to copper color shifting paint that transitions depending on the light. The Blade has been featured in green for a few generations, but now "green" doesn't just refer to the cosmetic. The racquet head guard and grommets are created with AGIPLAST, a bio based plastic which can also be found in the end cap. Wilson went under the hood and specifically under the grip with Direct Connect technology which connects the end cap into the carbon fiber, as opposed to the foam in the racquet handle. The result is a 16% increase in torsional stability for greater power and consistency. With version 8, the Wilson Blade should continue to have a substantial following among competitive tournament players.


Features:
-Limited US Open Night Session Cosmetic
-Plant based plastics used for the racquet grommets and head guard.
-FORTYFIVE° construction allows for a rare combination of flexibility and stability 
-Direct Connect sees the end cap attached to carbon fiber beneath the grip, as opposed to foam
