Wilson’s idea for the 2010-2011 season was to come out with a racquet that has the “Perfect Feel”. This BLX racquet technology gives you just that. These racquets are available in 5 different weights and 2 string patterns.
The Warlock BLX (175 grams), Sword BLX (185 grams) and Force BLX (190 grams) are the most powerful BLX racquets with the strings going down through the handle for maximum trampoline effect. The LockJaw BLX (160 grams) and the Rant BLX (170 grams) have the more traditional string pattern for more of a balance of power and control.
Younger players or players with faster swing speeds will generally stay with the lighter weight racquets while the older player or a player with a slower swing speed might pick up the Force BLX or the Sword BLX and hit the court.
The Wilson BLX Sword is Solid, accurate, impressive. Built for the aggressive player that wants a little more weight behind their swing.
If you're unsure about your model or weight...try our DEMO Program.
These are available in SS (smaller) grip size only.
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

BLX is the new Wilson® Racquet Technology engineered with basalt fibers combining proprietary frame, grommet and grip technologies for THE PERFECT FEEL.
BL = Basalt + X = Proprietary Technologies combined for the perfect feel.
Basalt fibers are woven longitudinally with [K]arophite Black to create the most advanced composite in the industry.
Like noise-cancelling headphones are filtering out unwanted external noise, Basalt added to the matrix filters the unwanted extreme frequencies that reach the hand. The raquet's ability to transfer impact information is substantially improved.

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. We’re 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 Pat’s 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. It’s also good to know if you’re 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.
