2013 Wilson Steam 99S 105S
 
Wilson is releasing a new racquet Steam 99S and 105S in 2013.
The string pattern is 16 x 15.

really open pattern...

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

A_Instead 09-10-2012 08:55 AM

wonder how control will be impacted??

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.

String breakers beware LOL

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.

Specs
 
Hey fellow lefty, any details as to the other specs of 99S, like weight and length?
Thx!

16x15? Crazy talk.

14x18 sounds much better to me.

zapvor 09-24-2012 05:04 PM

Me too! I really liked the demo I did of the previous Steam.

Tennisguy777 09-26-2012 12:22 PM

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:

souledge 12-10-2012 07:19 AM

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

gilmoursband 12-12-2012 09:20 AM

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