Yea I was wondering about this as well. Def. don't think it looks like the KBlade that she used to use. Has PWS...maybe one of the new BLX...maybe the new Blade???

I noticed the big PWS as well and it seems to be a wider body racket as well! .. Keep up the good observations! LOL

The blades don't have PWS. At least not the current ones...

I believe Philipp Kohlschreiber's KBlade also had PWS.

Kohlschreiber's too.

maybe they're adding pws for the blx version...?

what does pws mean anyway?

It would be surprising if they did :) The Blades are Radical competitors: the Blade 98 has the same headsize, similar balance and weight are quite similar. Although it could very well happen.

PWS means perimeter weighting system. It's just like putting some lead tape at 3 & 9 for more stability-one of the few technologies that actually works :)

To all that claim that Kolli's or Tsonga's KBlades had PWS -- another proof that they used something else under the PJ. Do the search and you will find out what...

There is no KBlade with the PWS.

Oudin uses the Wilson K Pro Staff 88 racquet.

Oudin uses the Wilson K Pro Staff 88 racquet.

Actually it is a new Chris Evert 88 type re-issue chick stick called the K- EvertStaff 89.

89si based on the 88 mould with similar feel of the 88 but lighter and less dramatic.

Lazerus

Oudin proved tonight that she is America's best future GS winner with the victory today against a tough opponent under pressure.

The K-EvertStaff 89 will be a big seller.

She was using the k blade 98 at Charleston so I guess she is looking for a different racket. I hope she stays with the k blades though.

i noticed this too while watching the match, the entire frame looks like its very wide (for my taste). im hoping the 93in version will have a nice thin beam. anyone have any idea when the new blades will be released? im holding out on any of the years new racquets until ive tried the blx blades. whenevr THAT will be :oops:

Sure, that was implicit.

(And actually, Kohl now plays with a BLX 6.1—with PWS obviously—instead of a KBlade).

The Evert 89 box beam is what alot of you have been asking for.

An 88 only more forgiving with the added 1 inch.

What the hell are you talking about? Such a frame doesn't exist, give us a few sources to back up your words. Wilson has no plans to release a new Everett stick. It wouldn't sell; the women of today's world (read: the buying female public) can't even wield 10 ounce frames under 100sq inches, let alone a 12 ounce + frame with an 89 inch headsize.

The Evert Kps89 will be ChickDude hybrid box beam for people that turned against the 88.

What a weird racquet!

FedererClone
04-25-2010, 10:38 AM
...could be k tour k factor 95 that has the 16x20 bed... but is it is then why is it black? ...must be an out of production model of some kind no? wilson nTour 2 95 maybe?

Nanshiki
04-25-2010, 12:01 PM
Maybe it's the new BLX Tour...which a wide-framed 95 inch racquet with a 16X20.

It's possible the reason that it's blacked out is that Wilson is going to try to paint it as something else (they don't want all their top players using the same frame, even if they really are...it's bad for sales), but haven't gotten around to doing so.

bsandy

Those that have Hi Def pause just before Deuce in the first game of the third set.

The bumber guard says "Power Holes" on it.

It's either a 5.4 or a 7.4 power holes. (6.4 was 18x20)

its prob just the new blx blade, and wilson doesnt want to show it until serena plays in the next grand slam w/it

Does anyone know if there is going to be a BLX blade? When do you think it will be released?
