Steam 99S
 
Got to see the new line up for the Steam and Wilson Blades.. Sadly I only have pictures of the Wilson 99S. Didn't get the exact specs down but I know that the Steam 99S's string pattern is 16 x 15.

Nice looking racquet. Excited to try it along with the new Blade 16X19.

Is that Pennetta and Dimitrov? Interesting players to be endorsing the frame....

It is a nice racquet, I actually got to hit with it recently. Absolutely sick amount of spin, but it was also a little too powerful and hard to control for me. The specs listed on the handle are -

weight - (304 grams) 10.7 oz (unstrung)
balance - 6 points headlight
string pattern - as you mentioned, 16x15
head size - 99 in^2

It did not state the flex

That's not Dimitrov, that's Paul-Henri Mathieu.

If there's a 16/19 Blade, with the same soft feeling as the nBlade 98, a box beam frame of under 20 mm, a headsize of 93 give or take 2, and a weight of over 12 grams, I'd be all over it! Hell... Just give me the strings and feel, I'll do the weight myself.

it's got both an ATP and WTA player on it. Colors don't look feminine to me.
