Wilson Platform Tennis 2010-2011Wilson introduces BLX to the 2010-1011 Platform Tennis Line
New wilson® paddle technology engineered with basalt fibers combining proprietary frame and grip technologies for the perfect feel.

BL=BASALT + X = proprietary technologies combined for the perfect feel

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 Karophite Black™ to create the most advanced composite in the industry.

FEEL
Feel is the impact information transferred into the player’s hand. It determines the ability to sense the ball coming off the paddle and to better control the shot. This is what connects the ball, paddle and player’s hand together.

Technologies
Cutting Edge Construction
Fully composite outer rim construction featuring Basalt Fibers for added paddle strength and soft feel on every shot
Smart Density
Smart Density utilizes two distinct EVA foam densities in one paddle. Smart Density occurs when the paddle responds to the speed of the hit on the paddle face. Your swing and impact can generate more power as Smart Density responds. The Smart Density core allows for more cushioned feel when needed.
Core Foam
Smart Density foam used in the paddle core has been taken to the next level using Karophite Black™. This nanoscopic level material helps control the voids in
the foam providing a more stable hit all around.
Contour Rim
A new engineered rim enhances stiffness for improved stability and control. Smooth paddle edges can increase pressure drag by increasing the size of the wake. Similar to dimples on a golf ball, the contoured rim reduces pressure drag by reducing the wake.
Sharp Hole Technology
Advanced hole drilling process provides increased bite on all hits.
True Grit™
Wilson tripled the amount of grit on the paddle surface of all of our paddles for increased control and feel of the ball.
