Wilson has recently released a new Shift tennis racket range that promises tons of spin and control.
The first two rackets in the range are the Shift 99 300g and the Shift 99 315g, with both rackets having similar specs to the old Steam 99 tennis rackets.
This article will look at the specs of both rackets to see how they compare to each other.
