The Wilson Five BLX is updated for 2014 and remains the ultimate comfort racquet in the BLX series. Features a versatile 103 sq. in. headsize and new Amplifeel 360 handle system to enhance power and feel. The Five BLX also features Double Hole Technology, which increases the diameter of the grommet holes. The string bed is allowed to flex more when impacted by the ball resulting in a smoother feel and added power. Triad technology in the yoke provides ultimate shock dampening for comfort in a mid plus frame. The latest Five BLX continues to be a high-powered, maneuverable frame that provides great feel to go along with maximum comfort in a lightweight frame.
The Wilson Triad racquets are really exceptional in damping shock. This is a nice racquet, not as powerful as the Three. A great choice for someone with a sensitive arm.

This was a gift to my father-in-law and it is perfect for his style of tennis that highlights control and shot placement. This is one of the best racquets he's owned and he uses it exclusively these days.
5 StarsVersatile stick

I shopped around for a long time before I bought this racquet. The closest competitors for a comfortable racquet with easy power and good feel were the Vokls. But this is superior.
I suffer from painful tennis elbow and this racquet reduces my pain to nothing.
Love serving with this racket. Lots of control, spin and power. Volleys took a bit of getting used to but now I love the solid feel at the net.
This stick is very versatile I feel. If I want to hit for power I can. If I want to step it down a notch and play with more control and reliability, it's excellent for that.
Hopefully it is durable as my last Wilson blx broke after just 2 years.
