New Wilson racquet reviews coming soon

Just a heads up that I’m due to receive several of the newer Wilson frames for review real soon. Apologies from here as I’ve lagged behind in doing racquet reviews and hope to do some catching up this year. As a side note, be aware that it’s not always easy for IART to get a [see more]

Wilson Pro Staff 97L Countervail

The Pro Staff 97L Countervail looks just like the one Federer uses, complete with the same cosmetics, laser engraving and chrome touches. However, this one is much lighter and more suited for the “mortal” user as opposed to the “super human” type like Federer. The Countervail version offers a material technology designed to reduce impact vibrations and muscle [see more]

Wilson Ultra 108

Unlike the Wilson Ultra 103S this racquet uses the standard ProStaff cross section that will appeal to those looking for a new performance racquet with out the “new” configuration or graphics. Not only is this racquet a contraian in terms of graphics it holds on to the well known 16 x 19 string pattern.  The [see more]

Wilson Ultra 103S

This racquet, the Wilson Ultra 103S, offers the “traditionalist” the classic ProStaff cross section geometry but incorporates the “S” (Explosive Spin!) spin friendly open string pattern.  Sort of like a Chevy Nova with 6.2 litre ZO6 power plant!  You have to look really closley to see why you are loosing to it! A close look [see more]

Wilson Ultra XP 100LS

Can you guess what the “L” means?  Correct!   A left-handed racquet! Actually, not!  This racquet can be used by any player wanting a slightly lighter (“L”) racquet than the Ultra XP 100S but with the open 16×15 pattern. Typical of the Ultra XP series this racquet is great to look at!  The pick-up feel [see more]

Wilson Blade 98S

This is Wilson’s update to the Blade 98S. As with the previous version, this one has the same open 18×16 string pattern to enhance spin but with 18 main strings, you’ll also get some good control with this frame. As a new addition to this model, Wilson has added a braided, Graphite/Basalt construction which allows the [see more]

Wilson Blade 104

The new updated version to the Blade 104 is a perfect combination of control, power and great maneuverability, even with it’s extended length. The layup consists of Wilson’s patented graphite/basalt technology that gives this frame a nice and flexible response and good dwell time to enhance control. The extended length (27.5″) has a relatively low swing weight, ours [see more]

Wilson Pro Staff RF97

The benchmark for the new Pro Staff’s surely must be the Federer frame. It has the traditional graphite/Kevlar layup, a headlight balance (8.16 pts headlight) and Wilson’s PWS (Perimeter Weighting System) This frame has enough mass to power through the ball at 12.49 oz/354g and with the headlight balance it’s quite maneuverable at the net. [see more]

Wilson Pro Staff 97LS

The Pro Staff 97 comes in 5 models and this is the LS (light spin) version in an 18×16 stringing pattern. It weighs 10.69 oz/303g compared to the standard version at 11.50 oz/326g and the Federer model at 12.49 oz/354g so as you can see, the lighter version is quite different plus, there’s even a [see more]

Wilson Pro Staff 97

This is the lighter version of Roger Federer’s racquet for those who can’t quite handle the weight of the Federer model. It weighs 11.50 oz/326g compared to the Federer model at 12.49 oz/354g and has a head light balance of 5.64. Still, there’s enough weight in this Pro Staff to inflict some real damage from [see more]
