Technologies

BLX: BL is basalt, a natural volcanic rock. It’s woven into fine gold fibers with incredible vibration resistance, which are incorporated longitudinally with [K]arophite Black, to create one of the most advanced composites in the industry. Basalt fibers are environmentally friendly, and superior to other fibers in thermal stability, sound insulation, vibration assistance, and durability. Gives the ultimate in frequency reduction, while retaining the responsiveness, stability, and rigidity of carbon fiber.

AMPLIFEEL 360: Amplifeel handle technology provides an even cleaner and more enhanced feel in the racquet. Amplifeel also allows for a more customized handle system, providing additional handle comfort and thus further maximizing the feel in each racquet and player segment.

Wilson should have made this racquet more flexible.

Wilson should have made this racquet more flexible. It feels similar to the BLX Tour. But this is too stiff and it hurt my arm after only one hour of play. Wilson shouldn't have messed around with the specs of a very good racquet. I'm still gonna be using the BLX Tour. I'm a 4.5 player who hits flat off both wings much like Lindsay Davenport, only shorter.

This racquet is sick! I've never played with a stick

This racquet is sick! I've never played with a stick that made me feel like I had to write a review, but this one deserved it. I've played with the old KFactor 6.1 and the Prince EXO Graphite 93 and I wanted something slightly lighter and a little more forgiving and this is the one. Plenty of plow through from the baseline, serves big, and volleys like a mid size. I'm a club pro in his early 30's, and this will be my racquet of choice for the time being. Nice job Wilson!

This is not a good racquet for players with arm problems.

This is not a good racquet for players with arm problems. Players of the tour series may find this racquet to be very stiff. I think Wilson should have made this more flexible.
