This is a great racquet for someone who knows the basics of tennis and wants to improve his level. It is very maneuverable all around the court - on volleys, groundstrokes, serves and returns. I played with both the 99S and 99 version and I invested in the 99. It was more stable for my game in all aspects. The 99s was great for baseline play, but came short for volleys and maneuverability in certain positions.

Ok guys, I have just finished a one week demo of the 99 S, 99 and Blade 16x19. I wanted to love the 99 S, but could not. It's too erratic and un-maneuverable. Just doesn't feel right. The stringbed is too open and the swing weight of the frame itself is too hefty. The 99, on the other hand, felt just right. More nimble and the 16x18 bed is perfect for spin and control. I will most likely buy this stick. The Blade is also an excellent feeling stick. Light, nimble, and accurate. I might have to get the Blade as well as a second stick. It doesn't have the power and meaty bite that the 99 has, but it is perfect in its own right. I hope this helps. Enjoy!

It's a law of physics. More cords equals more control

It's a law of physics. More cords equals more control and less spin. Fewer strings creates less control and more spin. I tested the Wilson 99s and found nothing of the monstrous spin. Nor could I feel the revolutionary technology that Wilson promotes. If you are looking for technology, I suggest trying the warrior Prince DB. It generates as much or more spin than the Wilson 99s. The Prince has much more maneuverability than the 99s. Try before you buy.
