Wilson Blade Club - Come on in you crazy kids! - 2013 info and more welcome :)
 
Hey Kids! Got some solid info for all here...

The picture that was on twitter of Serena's hitting partner with a blade was indeed the future paint job! No more gold or pink versions :(

All I have is that the lineup stays the same minus the lite and a new 98.

Tour 93
Blade 98 (Two Versions not just cosmetic)
Team

No word on stiffness ratings so I'm not sure if they are going back to the K Factor stiffness on the 93 and 98. I believe they reversed it for BLX correct?

Yes Amplifeel in all versions.

I always thought a tour weighted 98 would be a hit.

Prostaffer 09-05-2012 05:56 AM

I add lead to my 98 in the handle at a lil at 3/9/12.

I doubt Wilson would do it as I see a TON of jr's playing this stick.

On the other hand the 93 is a sweet stick too. Just wish it had more free power on the serve.

Tour 93 with an 16x19 pattern would be so nice...

If I could have changed one thing about the 98 it would be a heavier static weight and definitely a more headlight balance.

Prostaffer 09-06-2012 05:29 AM

Weights will stay the same as will the string pattern on the 93...the 98 however...

Don't hold out on us!!! Hopefully they'll be an open pattern available on the 98.

God I miss my tour 93. That thing was truly remarkable. I've since switched to the k90 and BLX 90 which I love a lot, but I miss the bigger headsize for some reason. Can't wait till next year. I really hope they make one with a box beam like the one Dimitrov uses.

Then it won't be called a Blade :)

I hope they make the 98 closer to the nBlade 98...

Well even a regular 93 i wouldn't mind. A 93 box beam from wilson would be my dream racket.

Wonder why they strayed away from the black & gold.

I was kinda diggin' it, even though I'd never switch to a blade.

mrmo1115 09-06-2012 06:54 PM

Release date info?

YesTennis 09-07-2012 04:54 AM

? Two string patterns for the 98

Djokofiets 09-07-2012 05:04 AM

I'm using the blade 98 blx version. I really like them but they are a bit too hh for me. I'm going to try to put on a lther grip for some extra weight on the handle:)

mrmo1115 09-07-2012 02:40 PM

I have some info for you guys! Confirmed that there is a 16x19 98. Know someone who made the switch already :) Release date is January-ish.

Automatix 09-08-2012 01:02 AM

Jankovic supposedly played with a blacked out 27,5 inch Blade with a 16x19 string pattern.

Thanks!! Good news. I think there a lot more people that may now be interested in trying the Blade with an open string pattern.

yemenmocha 09-08-2012 05:41 AM

where is the weight distribution on this racquet? same for the nBlade?

If I wanted to have a neutral racquet be as close as possible in BALANCE, where would the weight probably go?

I always thought the nblade seemed a tad heavier in the 10 through 2 o'clock range.

do you have any pictures or evidence to prove this? before the blx blade was released people kept saying there was a 16x19 blade and all we received was a pink blade:???:. I hope your source is correct! i always wanted a blade with an open string pattern
