Wilson Blade SW104 Autograph Countervail Racquet Review


Introducing a very special version of the Blade 104. It’s called the Blade SW104 Autograph Countervail and it was made for one of the game’s greatest legends – Serena Williams. With an extended length of 28 inches, this racquet not only gives you extra reach, but it will allow you to attack the ball with lethal momentum. Factor in the lively 104in² headsize and the result is massive power on full swings. There’s also an impressive level of control thanks to the dense 18×19 string pattern, a fact that should enable aggressive players to swing bigger and fully exploit this racquet’s mass. To help with comfort, Wilson constructs this stick with Countervail, which is a uniquely flexible carbon layer designed to filter out harsh impact vibrations. Wilson also gives the SW104 Power Holes, which enables the string bed to soak up additional shock and transfer more power to the outgoing shot. From the baseline Serene’s racquet is a power player’s dream. With its high swingweight it requires solid mechanics, but those who can swing it fast will be rewarded with devastating power. It’s also extremely stable, making it great for redirecrecting your opponent’s pace. The stability also helps on service returns where this racquet feels rock solid against big first serves. At net this racquet does not get pushed around, and here’s also some serious pop available on overheads. Finally, the extended length on serves translates into very easy net clearance and MASSIVE power. With the Blade SW104 Autograph Countervail, Wilson has created a stable and precise weapon that will allow experienced players to impose their will with some very heavy shots.
