Monday, August 27, 2012 Wilson BLX Pro Staff, Six.One, and Blade: A Legacy of Success

Don Budge Wilson

Wilson racquets have been winning major titles since the days of Don Budge and Jack Kramer, and today’s models are winning their share as well. Since 2003, great champions like Roger Federer, Venus and Serena Williams, Justine Henin and more have won 43 Slam singles titles with Wilson racquets in their hands. Technological updates to the classic Pro Staff, Six.One, and Blade models are evidence of Wilson's consistent commitment to improvement and performance.

If you decide you’d like to try one of these Wilson BLX racquets, check out the Tennis Express Demo Program! Taking a racquet for a test drive is the best way to help you decide which model is best for you.

Pro Staff Series: The new Pro Staff BLX frames feature classic narrow, flat-beam design, thin-beamed construction for feel and control of more powerful swings, and use the new Amplifeel handle technology to remove any harmful vibrations. Roger Federer uses the Pro Staff Six.One 90 BLX for its pinpoint accuracy and stellar feel. Mere mortals might prefer the Pro Staff Six.One 95 BLX or Pro Staff Six.One 100 BLX for added power and forgiveness in a top-flight player’s frame.

Six.One 95 BLX 16x18

Six.One Series: Wilson’s Six.One series of frames have been making good players better for over 25 years. Combining classic heavy/head light frame design with just a little more flex, Six.One racquets allow strong players to hit powerful groundies and serves while maintaining quick hands at net. For 2012, Wilson has updated the line with the inclusion of Amplifeel to filter out harsh vibration.

The original Six.One 95 BLX 16x18 is the classic frame in this series, giving good players a 12-ounce weapon for baseline or net play, and the open string pattern provides increased spin and comfort. It’s one of the most popular frames of choice for Wilson tour players. String breakers and those wanting more control have the option for a tighter string pattern on the Six.One 95 BLX 18x20. Those wanting Six.One feel and control with less weight can try the Six.One Team BLX for an easier-to-swing player’s frame. The 2012 version has a new 16x18 string pattern for more comfort and spin.

Blade Series: The Blade series from Wilson adapts the player’s frame to the modern style of play. With lower weight so you can whip the racquet head up for easier topspin, they maintain classic flat-beamed frame control and feel. The Blade 98 BLX is the most popular in the line by far, combining the classic Blade beam and moderate flex with a dense string pattern and mid-plus 98 square inch head for control . Those wanting a splash of color in a player’s frame will love the Blade 98 Pink BLX, used by Italian WTA star Flavia Pennetta. Wilson BLX Pink
Blade Team BLX

Serena won Wimbledon and the Olympic gold medal with the Blade Team BLX, using its 104 square inch head, softer flex and lower weight, along with Power Hole grommets for controlled power and great feel. The Blade Lite BLX can officially be called the “tweener Blade” for its lightweight frame design that still offers the classic Blade feel. The BLX Blade Lite Pink offers the same package with added fashion sense. In the Blade Tour BLX, Wilson designed a Blade frame for stronger players, featuring a 93 square inch head and almost 12 ounce strung weight.
