Hi everyone. CoachVhere to talk about the 2013 Steam 99s.

On October 19th 2012, Wilson invited me to come play test some of their new equipment for 2013.

the new Blades are good. the Blade tour will be great for players who are looking to switch from head prestige pro 93. The Blade tour in my opinion will offer better feel than the head prestige pro versions or classic.  if you are a Novack Fan and you like his racquet you will love the Blade 98 with the 16m by 19C racquet with the 360 amplifeel handle technology.

there is a new Juice 100 L ( for light ) more power & lighter.


New technology from Wilson


Now to the 2013 Steam 99s: retail is 219.00 BUY

the Story of the steam 99s

Ok so I'm sitting there listening to marketing materials.  Waiting to get on Court to test the racquet. Wilson explains that they test the RPMs of the ball using a Doppler radar  that was designed for golf originally and was transformed to tennis. the Doppler radar accurately counts the RPM for the ball  when hit with spin.

Now here comes the fun. the Counter play test racquet was a popular racquet with a player who may or may not be injured with knee problems currently.  They gave me that racquet "air bolate" ( hehe) & i got about 2900 RPM with the Counter test racquet. my score of 2900 was higher than everyone there even the other players and coaches who used the steam 99s.  Then they gave me the steam 99s and I got a 10% increase in Spin 3190 RPMs. my fastest shot was 85 MPH all forehands steam & air o BABYlatte.   Now think... with a 10% increase of spin I was able to hit the ball Higher Deeper with more consistency, How will this help you, just imagine that you get 10% better, how much more can you win.

This racquet will be a major game changer for allot of tennis players male female & Juniors in 2013.

Now what sold me on this racquet isn't the marketing from Wilson, & not me being a Wilson guy. What Sold me  was a miss hit that i made with the Steam 99s, that I was able to pull back in on the baseline using the steam 99s.

Ex. or what happened with the miss hit.

I had a shot where i didn't get close enough to the ball. I have a whipping trick that helps me add spin and pull the ball down and in sometimes. However this situation felt like one of those times where the ball will be just out and sail little long and it didn't to my surprise. The ball took a heavy curve down to hit the baseline.

I was thinking WOW i need a Tour version heavy like my Prostaff 90's. Wilson guys said no i cant have one and they will not make one, but i can lead tape it. ;'-( (boo hoo). 

I feel that if i can get a 10% percent increase of spin on my ball i will make less errors, if i make less errors I will win more ( now all the Wilson marketing makes sense cause that's their marketing this year lol aka win more )

if you would like to order early or have more questions about how to string the racquet or anything related to the 2013 line ups for Wilson let me know. thanks for your time

no body care about the PD-+= what ever, except little boys and girls. We are talking about here a game changer racquet . it will definitely  be 1 #steam99s

My PD+'s were game changer racquets for me.  They are beasts!  Huge sweet spots.  Overall, the best sticks I've ever played, especially on serve and ground strokes, and I've played with many.  When I demo the Steam I'll report back.
