Basalt: Basalt is a natural volcanic rock. It can be used in manufacturing where it is made into fine gold fibers with incredible vibration resistance. Wilson's new technology, BLX, has used these basalt fibers and woven them longitudinally with [K]arophite Black to create one of the most advanced composites in the industry.
With basalt, a smoother signal reaches the hand. BLX technology delivers clean feedback and better sensation for the Perfect Feel.
Linear Geometry: New frame technology providing up to 35% more overall stability compared to a classic beam construction.
AGT: Articulated Grommet Technology allows an extraordinary 76 degrees of string movement.
Double Hole™: Bigger holes allowing 26 degrees of string movement for a bigger sweetspot.
Triad®: A 3-piece racquet system where hoop and handle are separated with Iso-Zorb™ for superior comfort.
Amplifeel™: Amplifeel handled technology provides an even cleaner and enhanced feel in the racquet. Amplifeel also allows for a more customized handle system providing additional handle comfort to further support maximizing the feel in each racquet and player segment.
