New, plastic on handle,
Wilson BLX 4 tennis racket in a midplus 105 square
inch head. This racket has white, blue
and charcoal graphics. Original selling price $209.
Please take a close look at the image above (you can
click for a larger version). There are several Wilson tennis
rackets with very similar names and stats but that don't look
anything like each other.
The BLX Four weighs 8.6 ounces unstrung and is 27 inches long.
It is balanced at 35.5 cm for a 3 pt head heavy rating on a variable beam width of 24/24.5/24. The narrow throat bridge enhances the feel and provides a more comfortable hit.
The BLX Four 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.
The BLX Four is a powerful 71 stiffness on my Babolat RDC which places it in the stiffest 5% of rackets that Wilson makes. The benefit of a stiff racket like this is that it's great at transfering the power you need for a big serve and deep groundstrokes. I would recommend this racket for players with slow to medium swing speeds who want an effortless big serve and punishing groundstrokes.
Recommended string tension is 53 to
63 lbs on this 16 x 19 string pattern where I recommend going
down 3 lbs in the cross strings to equalize string pressure
throughout the frame.
