The new Wilson BLX Khamsin-Five, the successor to the popular K-Five, combines a number of new and old features to create a unique frame to appeal to a broad range of players. The most significant upgrade to the previous model is the inclusion of the new BLX technology, which combines three features in this model. The important Basalt fibers added into the graphite matrix enhance the feel at contact by reducing frame vibration playing a key role in all models in the BLX Family. The BLX Khamsin-Five features a head heavy balance for stability and power from the baseline. The FX throat basically splits the frame to act as a quad shaft model, which effectively resists twisting, leading to greater torsional stability on off center shots. The frame also features the classic Triad technology, which separates the head and throat of the racquet, connecting them using an Isozorb material between the two. This greatly reduces the shock that reaches the players arm, making the BLX Khamsin-Five one of the best Wilson frames for players with tennis elbow. This racquet also features the new Articulated Grommet Technology, which increases the freedom of movement in the stringbed, resulting in an increased sweetspot and greater comfort. Designed for comfort and forgiveness, the Khamsin-Five is sure to be popular for the medium swing crowd looking for a solid frame loaded with technology to protect their game.
