Introducing the Blade 98 16x19 v8 Night Session! Featuring the same specs and playability as the standard Blade 98, this racquet's cosmetic celebrates the legendary night sessions of the US Open. At 11.3 strung and boasting a speedy sub 320-RDC swingweight, the Blade 98 16x19 v8 is ideal for intermediate and advanced players, especially if they want a classic feeling player's racquet with modern speed. The Blade 98 has a buttery 61-RA stiffness, giving it outstanding ball feedback and arm-friendly comfort. The signature technology is Braid 45, which includes graphite and aramid fibers woven at a 45 degree angle to enhance feel, pocketing and stability. This racquet also features Direct Connect Technology which fuses the butt cap directly to the carbon fiber portion of the handle for added stability. Experienced players looking for speed, spin, precision and feel should love this one. The special US Open cosmetic makes it a great collectible.
