In the last 10 years, spin has changed the way people play tennis. Gone the days where it was acceptable for players to hit a flat slow-moving ball across the net. Wilson now make racquets that feed the spin beast. The Wilson Steam 99S is a part of the new group of racquets that will help you ramp up your RPMs on the court. Its full of power and feel, with all-court possiblity. The "S" stands for Spin and rightfully so. This version of the Steam has been enhanced with the Spin Effect Technology. Which essentially increases a players RPMs on the ball by allowing more string movement due to the extremely open string pattern (16x15). Wilson is the first racquet to use this technology, and quite frankly, it works. Players will see 3.3 times more string movement, with 69% faster snapback as the ball brushes across the string bed. If you really want to see the results, add Luxilon's newest monofilament, 4G, in the frame and the results will shock you. You will see more arch on the ball and your opponent will immediately feel pushed back off the baseline due to the high amount of spin.

Comments about Wilson Steam 99S:

New vistas of spin and shot making abound with this new lightweight frame. Extra RPM on groundies is no problem for those with a low to high full stroke. Would be nice if a 4-5/8" grip was available. Nice product!

Comments about Wilson Steam 99S:

Though a bit on the light side, this frame delivers incredible spin so the court feels five to ten feet longer. Spin serves really "break". Too bad racquet is not offered in a 4-5/8" grip. Ball RPM rises high with topspin. Great product!
