Lite, and Wilson BLX V Lite)
Our Price: As low as $142.99 per racket with cover (unstrung)
The BLX FiveLite weighs 8.8 ounces unstrung and is 27.25 inches long.
It is balanced at 35.5 cm for a 3 pt head heavy rating on a beam width of 25.4mm. The BLX Five Lite has Wilson's triad technology where the head is separated from the shaft of the racket by a shock cancelling Iso-Zorb polymer that provides a more comfortable hit.
The BLXV utilizes Wilson's BLX technology which incorporates fibers of basalt longitudinally (basalt is a natural volcanic rock). Wilson K-Factor racquets all incorporate this vibration dampening material in a system they refer to as Karophite Black. According to Wilson, the result is a significant reduction in vibrations in the racquet.
Recommended string tension is 50 to
60 lbs on this 16 x 20 string pattern where I recommend going
down 4 lbs in the cross strings to equalize string pressure
throughout the frame.
