    Wow that racquet looks like a hybrid between the Head MicroGel Wilson K-factor series.

    Hey lefty, I've seen the new steam 96. Are the 99 & 105 going to be released in the US?

    Sounds like the first technology tweak by Wilson in a long time that will actually make a difference.

    Seems it's just a ripoff of TWU.

    Yeah, I really dislike how racquets are going 16x20. I even much prefer 16x18 over 16x19.
    Heh, exactly what I was thinking. And I hope Yonex copies it.

    16x15? Crazy talk.

    14x18 sounds much better to me.

    18 x 18 would be the best compromise.

    Well, Prince has the Warrior DB, Wilson has the Steam 99S, maybe Dunlop will make a Bio 300 18x18 :razz:

    How would you characterize the difference between the 99S and the 105S? Which one is more spinny?

    The only release date I can find about these new steam racquets is Jan. 2013. Anyone know the exact date?
