Strung Weight and Swing Weight
The Head Gravity Pro is the heavier of the two tennis rackets in terms of strung and swing weight.
The weight range of these rackets means they are better suited to more advanced tennis players as they will be too heavy for most beginner to intermediate players.
Both tennis rackets have a standard racket length of 27in.
The Blade 98 has a 98in head size while the Gravity Pro has a more standard 100in head size.
Like many modern tennis rackets, both rackets have a head light balance with the Gravity Pro being slightly more head light than the Blade 98.
Having a head light tennis racket will make it easier to maneuver these rackets at the net when compared with a head heavy tennis racket.
Both the Gravity Pro and the Blade 98 have relatively low stiffness ratings of 62 and 60 so both would be considered to be arm friendly rackets.
The Gravity Pro has a thinner beam width than the Blade 98 so it definitely will be harder to generate power with the Gravity Pro when compared to the Blade 98.
Both tennis rackets would be considered to be low powered rackets but the Blade 98 provides a little more power than the Gravity Pro so if you think you need some help generating power on your shots then the Blade 98 will be the better option.
Both of these rackets have an 18×20 string pattern so they will both be good at providing control on your shots.
I wouldn’t recommend either of these two rackets to a beginner or intermediate tennis player as they are relatively heavy rackets that are better suited to advanced players who have developed a full swing.
