Steam 105S

The "modern game" is all about spin and Wilson understands spin like no other brand.  Steam rackets are engineered for hard-hitting players who use spin to curve the ball's flight and control the game.  Our revolutionary Spin Effect Technology is the first racket system that actually INCREASES the RPM of every shot by maximizing spin-enhancing string "snapback" during ball contact.

I purchased this racquet at a tennis specialty store unstrung. After having it strung and ready to go, I could tell a huge difference in my first game. This racquet is unbelievable. I'm more of a power hitter, and this racquet allows me to crush the ball while still landing it in-bounds. I can put spin on the ball effortlessly, so with effort I really drive my opponents wild. The racquet is very appealing to the eye, and if you're somewhat of a tennis novice like myself, you will be doing yourself a favor by trying this racquet out. Every Wilson produce I've had has been excellent, and this racquet is no exception. Do yourself a favor and try this one out, and you will be amazed at how much power and control you can achieve just by using this racquet!

I can actually feel the top spin in my hands. Power, what should I say, I think the racket is the god of power. I am telling you, buy this racket use it for 2 weeks you will love it! Well when hit the ball deeply, powerfully and with a great big happy smile and when I hit the ball to the right side it goes more right. Do you know why? Because it is spinning!
Dude Wilson is #1 it is good.
Thanks. Parsa

I love this racquet. It gives extreme spin and I can hit angle shots easily. My serve seems to have much more power than before. My slice serves spins out my opponent's reach. How sweet is that?
I did a hybrid--Solinco tour Bite, 18g in the mains at 54 lbs. and Babolat VS Touch 16g in the crosses at 54lbs.

Make sure it gets strung as recommended so the spin feature will work as designed.

I had misgivings about a racket that had its performance predicated on spin, but found that slice and flat shots could be executed as handily as heavy topspin. It served well, volleyed crisply, and was solid on returns. One word of caution--the literature says that the frame is 4 points HL, but the frame state 8 points HL. For me, a few inches of lead tape at "10 and 2" gave the frame more neutral handling, and made it much easier to control the position of the racket head on hard hit balls.

I have demo'd this racket for a while against many other brands and found this best for my game. The spin is amazing not only the kick when it hits the ground but the curve you can place on the ball with cut shots and overheads. I have left several players bewildered at the net because of the movement on the ball in the air.
Where I have enjoyed the racket the most is at the net. I am not a base line player. I play ALTA doubles and will move up as soon as I can. I found this racket to be exceptional at returning balls hit around my ankles. With the added surface and power my put away percentage at the net has improved nicely.
