Blade 98 BLX

One of the best selling performance Tennis Rackets in the world, the new Blade 98 is probably the best options available for serious competitors who place a premium on feel and control for every position on the court. Its mid-plus head, mid level weight and maneuverable balance point yields a highly productive result. The addition of BLX technology takes the Blade 98 BLX to a new level of feel.

Alright, so I'm a serious player in the intermediate to advanced range for teens. I've been playing for a while so what I say is legit. This racket is great, I tend to drive the ball, with some top spin and I use full strokes with a mid range back swing and full follow through. This racket gets great control with okay power.(String it low.) This racket works best at the baseline and well at the net, and has great service to. Things to watch out for, the head isn't lighter than the back, so it makes it a little less maneuverable than you think. But, it isn't something that hinders the game a lot, practically none. This racket won't swing through as fast as rackets that are head light. But the feel is great, the control is amazing, and it great for serious players. This isn't a racket for the one hour every Sunday player, this racket will be great as long as you hold up your share of the work. But, it deserves a five star rating.

My two previous racquets were the Wilson [K]Blade 98 and the Wilson BLX Six.One 95 18x20 (in that order). This racquet is very similar to the Wilson [K]Blade 98 but much more improved. Actually, this is the best racquet I've played with. Much more forgiving and with a superb sense of feeling. I was very happy with my last racquet (Wilson BLX Six.One 95) but with the BLX Blade 98 my serves have improved a lot thanks to the lighter weight, this allowed me to raise the acceleration in my serves. In addition, my groundstrokes were great, faster, with more spin but also highly stable. If you liked the [K]Blade 98 or the BLX 6.1 95, you should definitely try this one. You will not regret it.

Perfect balance and "feel". Not too much flex, and nicely weighted so you can really hit through the ball.

This racquet is just too good to be true. Wilson make the best performance frames in the world. Rock solid, perfect feel, awsome cosmetic, reasonable spin potential,great pop,superior control...
WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR.
THANK YOU WILSON. P.S: Go Milos Raonic!!!!!!!!

This racket is a dream ! The perfect blend of pop, control, forgiveness and stability / feel imo is second to none. Important to have an adaequate stringing job... I chose "champions choice" mid tension and it fits perfectly.

I didn't think I would find a racquet that could replace my KBlade 98. I love my KFactor racquet. It fits my game perfectly. Then along comes the BLX to replace it. It's even better! Just the right amount of pop and forgiveness. Well balanced with good weight and solid control.

K Blade BLX - Great speed and feel!
Posted September 8, 2011
After using an older Wilson frame I decided to give this one a spin. The tight string pattern begs a lower string tension, especially if you have arm problems. The weight and balance of this stick allows for increased racket head speed and therefore more pop and control on the serve. Speed on groundstrokes gives me confidence to go for the lines. This is a quality racket that immediately improved my game.

In a nutshell: This racket is a dream ! Made me switch from my old racket which I stuck to for decades in some iterations.
