DESCRIPTION:

A weapon inspired by the pinnacle of the clay season and designed with elegant flair, the Wilson Blade 98 v7 (16×19) Roland Garros Tennis Racquets backs up its sharp design with cutting-edge innovation for next-level performance. FeelFlex technology, an evolution of the revolutionary FreeFlex technology in Clash, features carbon mapping strategically placed throughout the racket frame to deliver a more connected-to-the-ball feel. Other upgrades include a Top Grip Taper for a more comfortable top-hand grip and reduced spec variance from frame to frame.

The most popular frame in the Blade series, the Wilson Blade 98 v7 (16×19) Roland Garros Tennis Racquets celebrate one of the game’s grandest stages. This tennis racquet utilizes cutting-edge Feel-flex technology to help players take their game to the next level. Feel-flex strategically places carbon mapping throughout the frame to allow players to feel more connected to the ball during game-play. The Blade 98 16×19 V7 Roland Garros is made of Braided Graphite + Basalt for a classic feel, and the Parallel Drilling provides a consistent, more forgiving string bed response. This iteration of the Blade also includes a Top Grip Taper for increased grip comfort, especially for two-handed backhands.

TECHNOLOGY:

  • BRAIDED GRAPHITE + BASALT: In this revolutionary new layup, Wilson braids Basalt with carbon graphite fiber throghout the entire frame. This is the first time Basalt has been braided. Since Basalt is so elastic, it allows the racquet’s hoop to flex in ways that improve feel, dwell time and control.
  • PARALLEL DRILLING: Provides a consistent, more forgiving stringbed response while dramatically increasing the sweetspot.
  • FEEL FLEX: An evolution of Clash’s revolutionary technology, FeelFlex produces a more connected feel while better complimenting the modern, vertical swing path. Proprietary carbon mapping strategically placed throughout the frame provides additional stability and flexibility through the swing, while maintaining the feel Blade players know and love.
