I know eb*y is full of ........ but when you do a search for wilson blx you get some very strange items suggested.
"worn pantyhose, tennis string, babolat"

Is anyone here going to enlighten me on what blx means - I always thought it was basalt fibers not some cottage fetish industry?

BLX stands for BLOCKS because the technology of basalt is supposed to BLOCK the unwanted frequencies to the hand resulting in "perfect" feel

"BL" stands for basalt, and "X" stands for the addition of basalt to 9 other Wilson technologies for a total of 10 different techs used in the line (I+IX=X). All 10 are not used in any one frame, but ...
