Wilson Blade 98 18×20 V6.0

The V6.0 Blade 98 18×20 offers a few changes to the original models. This one has the same silky matte finish and minimalist elegance found in the Pro Staff line and the base specs remain extremely close to the original model. So where’s the real difference?

Wilson Burn 100 CV V2.0

I’ll admit that I’m going to be just a little bit biased on this review because this is my personal racquet of choice.

At 9.98 ounces strung and with that balance this racquet is quite maneuverable [see more]
