    If this was the case, then he wouldn't be trying out blacked out frames (or even trying out frames) at all.

    All of the pj's are kind of crazy. I myself like the colors on the steam. Pretty sure more pros than kvitova will use the steam or at least the pj

    All of the specs look pretty good except the envy is too light. It would be nice to know the swing weight though. :)

    Yes, Wilson sales and marketing staff tell people Kei Nishikori actually switched to the Steam right before Basel...and beat Nole with it! Tremendous! This must be an amazing frame!

    Just got confirmation from Wilson that the Juice Pro BLX will be same mold as BLX Pro Tour. See below.



    Good morning and thank you for your question. The Juice Pro BLX will use the same original mold as the Pro Tour BLX, however the racquet will be a little longer so the original mold will be extended. Hope this helps!

    Kind Regards,
    Wilson Consumer Relations

    Tested.....

    We were able to look at these frames back in Oct and some people will be very happy with the new models. The colors look at lot better in person than in the pics and I think someone mentioned earlier that the Juice is based on the Argentinian flag for DelPo. The feel on all of the models was pretty sweet if you like the current Wilson line.

    Cheers, TennezSport :cool:

    Won't this "Juice" just be painted on his old Wilson Hyper Pro Staff 95's he has used for years? I can't see a PWS.

    All we can.............

    All we can say is that if you like the current Wilson lineup, you will really like the new frames, as feel was slightly increased.

    personally i actually don't mind this pj. i think it looks better than the blx pro tour pj for sure, but that's just me. the blx pj looked sooooo lacking, but this one has toooooo many colors. but nonetheless, i like this one better.

    so this is really going to be Delpo's new pj? i have a feeling that he'll just either switch back to his k factor pj or use the blx pj of whatever racquet.

    The Wilson people seem to have lost the plot a little.
    The old range was uniformly attractive - some of the BLXers are pretty ugly.

    He was wearing the same shoes at the Davis Cup.

    So, maybe they're just his customs?

    I actually like the paint job. I wonder like his last racquet, if a closed string patterned version will come out as well.

    I have the new juice and it's more hideous in person. Also if Del Potro is really playing with the juice that is one thick racquet the beam is actually thicker than a six one, it's like about an inch thick.

    yup, i predicted it to be even uglier in person, sadly. does it play and feel good at least? i hear that it has a lot of power, and i'm assuming that it's quite stiff.

    The photo in the latest Tennis magazine looks like he's holding this racquet but the beam looks boxier. I could be mistaken.

    I thought he was a harmless guy that did not do anything but make some really weird posts. I wonder what got him banned?

    I'd like to know as well. It was always hard to tell if he was really that innocent or if he was being sarcastic.

    We'll be able to tell if he comes back under a different username. His style is unmistakable.

    Have had a good hit with the Juice Pro and it is solid. Had Sensation strung in the demo and was such a smooth racquet with really great feel. Has a beautiful HL balance and the swing weight was perfect. The colour was the only off puttiing thing, but the way it played it wasn't a factor.

    I see you use a BLX Blade 98. How do you feel the Juice Pro compares as far as plowthough, feel and control. Thanks

    There's a 3/8ths on the Bay, if anyone is interested. Fair price - and NO - it's not mine. Just happened to run into it.
