What is BLX?
Basalt is a natural volcanic rock used in manufacturing and made into fine and ultra-fine gold fibers. Basalt fibers are environmentally friendly and superior to other fibers in terms of thermal stability, sound insulation, vibration assistance and durability. With the new BLX line, Basalt fibers are woven longitudinally with the innovating [K]arophite Black to create the most advanced composite ever in the industry. Players will find the ultimate in frequency reduction while retaining the performance of carbon fiber in terms of lightness, responsiveness, stability and rigidity.
Basalt added into racquets filters out unwanted frequencies (i.e vibrations) that reach the hand to deliver a clean feedback and sensation for the perfect feel players demand.

Excellent racquet for the price
Bought this to move my junior from 26" to full size and couldn't have been happier. Very light and well-balanced with a noticeable power boost from the junior Wilson. Pictures don't do justice - good looking racquet as well. Chose Gamma Revelation strings and they seem to be a step up as well. Only negative was that it didn't come with a cover!
Light racquet. Great price!
I bought this racquet for my 13 year old intermediate level player. It is a nice lightweight racquet at a great price. He loves the feel of the racquet and seems to have increased control of his shots over his old racquet.
Feels like Triad, Hammer 4.0
I have used Wilson rackets for years and wanted to replace my old technology with new that feels just the same. This racket feels exactly like an updated version of the Hammer technology. I tried it stringing at the middle of the recommended tensions with my usual 17-gauge Wilson Sensation string. I found that I wanted just a little more power, so I restrung it 2 lbs lighter without losing any perceptible control: Solid groundstrokes and solid volleys. Perfect for us Hammer lovers!
