Wilson BLX Tour Limited Racquet Review


buy this racquet demo this racquet

With 14 Wilson BLX racquets coming out in full-force, the BLX Tour Limited is definitely among a distinguished heritage. The frame features power holes at the 3 and 9 o’clock position for added pop along with an extra half an inch extension for added reach in a manageable weight end for control. This new racquet looks promising to start the New Year off with a bang.
 
 

Groundstrokes: 

I was able to get a nice blend of power from the new power hole design but also enough control to keep a solid baseline to baseline stroke in play from the smaller 95 sq in head size. The extension not only allowed me to whip the racquet a little more to produce some added spin, but I also found the extra length to come in quite handy for harder to reach shots. Topspin and slice were there but I did not notice an excess amount. This was a great tweener racquet leaning on the side of control.

Volley:

The extra reach although small, made a significant difference on my volleys as I found it much easier to reach some shots that I would otherwise not with a standard length near the midcourt. However, the same could not be said for volley techniques directly at the net as it was a little more difficult to adjust to shots that projected straight at me with limited recoil and reaction time. The power holes really make a difference when it comes to the tennis ball coming off the string bed with a more responsive feel. Feel was great as I could hit angle volleys on demand from almost any position. I was able to attune to the frame and easily make adjustments to optimize my returns.

Serves:

The frame exhibits a remarkable game play for heavy servers who love to put forth a great deal of force behind their service. I was able to vary the service angle with enough precision whether it be down line or to a corner to throw off opponents. The 95 sq in gave me more than enough control to keep the ball right on target for a fast paced serve and volley approach.

Overall:

To some extent, the new BLX Tour Limited was easier to maneuver with plenty of pop and precision than its cousin; the BLX Tour. It is definitely a unique racquet of choice among the Wilson line up that resonates with the player. I recommend every player of a 4.0 level or higher give this racquet a try. I highly recommend this frame for players who are comfortable hitting with plenty of power and pace but are interested in a more moderate and versatile weight to maneuver with ease across the court.
