Introduced for the 2013 - 2014 season - BLX Tech - Lite Foam & No Grit Zone
|Lite Foam (New for 2013 - 2014) - Introducing a new scientific breakthrough in foam density. The new Lite foam offers the most responsive paddle shots with less weight. Better hits with less arm fatigue, so play hard play longer.|
|No Grit Zone - (New for 2013 - 2014) Unparalleled comfort meets unmatched technology. Wilson Killer Grit Technology is a rough texture that's added to the paddle surface for extra bite. With No Grit Zone, this rough texture is removed from the bottom of the paddle leaving a smooth surface that keeps players from experiencing discomfort in their fingers.|
Wilson BLX Paddle Technology - Now with Gator Grit Technology
BLX is the 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 is a natural volcanic rock
Basalt can be used in manufacturing and made into fine and ultra fine gold fibers.
Basalt fibers are environmentally friendly and superior to other fibers in terms of thermal stability, sound insulation, vibration resistance and durability.
Basalt fibers are woven longitudinally with [K]arophite Black to create the most advanced composite in the industry.
Like noise-cancelling headphones are filtering out unwanted external noise, Basalt added to the matrix filters the unwanted extreme frequencies that reach the hand. The paddle's ability to transfer impact information is substantially improved.
BLX technology delivers a clean feedback and better sensation for the perfect FEEL !
|Killer Grit - Wilson tripled the amount of grit on the paddle surface of all of our paddles for increased control and feel of the ball.|
|Gator Grit - New for 2011 - 2012. Wilson tripled the amount of grit on the paddle surface of all of our paddles for increased control and feel of the ball. Extra Bite.|
|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.|
