Sporting a slick color-shifting elastic finish, the Blade 98 (18x20) v8 commands attention with eye-catching design alongside elevated performance. While the exterior of the frame morphs between shades of green and copper, the interior of the frame features new FORTYFIVE° technology to increase flexibility and stability, yielding excellent feel for the modern, vertical swing path common in today's game. In addition, the carbon fiber handle extends to the end cap for enhanced feel and torsional stability, producing a frame that exceeds all expectations for the latest evolution of the most popular racket franchise on the pro tour.

 

Features

Braided Graphite + Basalt

Elastic and reactive material combination improves the flex of a racket to increase ball contact with the strings for enhanced feel and greater control.

Parallel Drilling

Grommet construction provides a consistent, more forgiving string bed response while dramatically increasing the sweet spot.

Top Grip Taper

Tapered grip lends better feel for top-handed grip placement on two-handed backhand.

FORTYFIVE°

Patent-protected frame layup produces more connected-to-the-ball feel while better complementing the more modern, vertical swing path. Material increases both flexibility and stability without compromise through the swing.

DirectConnect

Carbon fibre handle extends to directly connect with end cap for improved feel and enhanced torsional stability.

- Ergonomic End Cap yields improved comfort and playability
