A member of the exclusive RacquetWorld Racquet Club. This was a best seller for Wilson for 2 years so we brought it back at an amazingly low price.
Wilson is kicking off the 2008-2009 season with 2 new high end frames called the KBoom and the KSonix. The KBoom is 165 grams and the KSonix is 175 grams. They've combined the best features from the last 2 years racquets to make the ultimate combination of power and control. Nano Technology and KFactor in one racquet??...wow!!
Available in the SS (Smaller 3 5/8) grip size Only.
If you're unsure about your model or weight...try our DEMO Program.
I would recommend changing the grip to a Python (Our favorite), or Head TackiMac† for the added traction to prevent slippage.† The Racquetworld Grommet Tape upgrade ($1) can save you $$ in the long run as sometimes strings break from the grommet being worn down.† For those who don't know what the grommet is, it's the plastic piece at the top of the racquet that the strings go through.† When you hit the wall and floor this gets worn down.
The Prince Premier string upgrade is recommended because factory string is less playable/durable then the Prince Premier string we suggest.† At the time of purchase, the Prince Premier restring upgrade is $21.95.† It's normally $36 if you mailed the racquet to us later so you save $14 if you choose the upgrade right away.
If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Ektelon Silencer (Our favorite), Head Megasorb, Gamma Worm or the BBB (Big Bad Band).
The wristlacer black is the default wrist tether that comes on your racquet at no charge.† If you want to change colors, a small fee of $2.95 will be added for switching.
A question we get everyday is "What is Grommet Tape?"† It's a piece of tape that goes over the head (bumper) of your racquet.† Sometimes you need a restring because of a broken bumper.† For an extra buck to add this, it could save you $25-40!!
We get follow up calls/emails everyday thanking us for the upgrades as they really help bring out the performance of the racquet.†
The Wilson/RacquetWorld Cover has a zippered pocket on the back and is made of a higher grade material

(K) Factor is really four different new technologies from Wilson.
1.) (K)arophite Black
A proprietary next generation structure created through a unique process at the nanoscopic level resulting in more feel and a stronger more stable feel and a stronger more stable racquet.
a combination of turbo tubes and power holes for increased stability and power
3.) (K)ontour Frame
Enhanced turbo tube design in the throat of the racquet for improved torsional stability. Maximum stability equals maximum power and (k)ontrol.
4.) (K)ontrolled Power
(K) Factor frame design combined with wilson's exclusive power string technology delivers (K)rushing power without sacrificing (K)ontrol.
All these result in increased feel , more strength and stability and (K)rushing power.
N Code Technology...
This is a revolutionary molecular matrix of high modulous graphite fibers and Nano-sized Silicone Dioxide crystals. This exclusive matrix is strategically positioned at key torsional points along the frame for maximum strength and stability.
Wilson is utilizing their new nCode technology combined with a new string pattern to make the best Wilson racquet we've ever seen in 150 (NLite) and 170 (NPower) gram weights. When a racquet is "nCoded," nano-sized silicone oxide crystals permeate the voids between the carbon fibers. This adjustment made at the molecular level, significantly strengthens and enhances the stability of the overall carbon matrix. What does all this mean? Basically the n'Code technology helps the racquet play better/stronger longer. nCoded racquets measure 2 times stronger, 2 times more stable and up to 22% more powerful than racquets of the past.
Wilson's string pattern which extends down through the frame over the grip. This pattern has created a very powerful and solid feel. Their ISO-ZORB material under the Power Strings dampens string vibration 25%.
Power Hole Technology...
Wilson "Power Holes" Racquetball Rackets features elongated grommet holes on the inside of the racket head, allowing the strings to move more freely upon ball impact which helps players generate more power on off-center hits. In contrast to traditional grommet holes which are merely 1.7mm in diameter, Wilson Power Holes are 10mm long (by 3mm wide), which give the strings up to 8.7mm of potential movement. This enhanced movement or sustained string contact helps the ball stay on the strings longer, resulting in increased feel, better directional control and more power!. Wilson Power Holes also expand the actual string response area, enabling players to experience the power of an oversize racket with the control of a midsize.

Ratings and comparisons for all racquets can be found in Racquetworld's Technology/Ratings Section
Control 1 (Front Court) represents how the racquet handles upfront in the court. Weíre basically looking at how certain components stacked together produce good (or bad) racquet maneuverability. To figure this out we look at the weight, balance point, and shape of the frame. We throw all this info into Patís brain along with a couple hours of hit testing and out pops the rating. This value is useful especially for doubles players who find themselves covering the upfront court a lot. Itís also good to know if youíre a good server and find yourself quickly putting away returns off your serve without leaving front middle court.
Control 2 (Back Court) represents the traditional control rating when taking a full shot from mid to back court. Our goal with control is to redirect the Force of the ball. We again focus on weight, balance point, shape, string pattern and tension, frame stiffness and on court experience.
