    I wonder when we'll get our first look at the BLX Blade line, the 93 tour, 98 and the 104 that the williamses use.

    It has been about two years since they were released, that's about the right time to release the new version. :) We wanna see the blades!

    The bags look like something coming out of mcdonalds. The racquet cosmetics have gone overboard, N90 paintjob is delicious, so is the black one with the yellow inside(could change yellow to white or red). The only thing that pisses me off, is they discontinue the great racquets (k90) & force you to buy this bs. Honestly they should take tips from HEAD- there's still liquidmetals for sale! please realize that everyone is not a mindless zombie buying whatever stick you try to make us believe our fav proffesionals use, wilson. Someone always ends up with a pro's racquet and figures out whats under the crappy paint. (I respect pete sampras like crazy for not selling out and not wanting his racquets paintjobbed, Pete, YOU THE MAN!) I do not want to change from k90. I only have 2, so sooner or later i'm going to be forced to buy this basalt crap, the sheer thought is hurting me. Well maybe this great board will have sellers who find basalt easier to use(from what I hear- it is.) Stay up guys.

    It's still strange that Wilson are marketing it as "the next new thing to have", when it's actually been used in racquets before. And not only in racquets, i've got a warehouse full of Rockwool, which is the same thing.

    They spelt insulation wrong, looks like a typo. Hope their quality control isn't as blx.

    The BLX 90 looks much better in person. The orange and blue (mets colors) is the BLX tour. NOt the Pro tour, that is the yellow and black, Delpo's stick. The Pro tour actually is a nice paint job.

    Spelling???

    I think you meant "spelled" as spelt is a grain of wheat. :wink:

    : an ancient wheat (Triticum spelta syn. T. aestivum spelta) with spikelets containing two light red grains; also : the grain of spelt

    Cheers, TennezSport :cool:

    Your tentative tone is well justified, next time follow your intuition (i.e. you're wrong and you sort of knew you were somewhere, yet for some reason you didn't look it up to check and still attempted to correct me, epic fail.)

    yeah but the cool thing about the red and black paint job is that it would match both your red shirt and black shirts -- and as we know, federer likes to wear both black and red shirts :)

    this is what happens when an american tries to correct an Englishman's english.
    on the other hand, "spelt," as opposed to "spelled," is not really used here in the states, let alone in new jersey, so i'd have to cut him some slack on that.

    true story. Demoed it again, and fell in love. never experience the honeymoon with any rackets but wilson mids, and this one keeps lasting :)

    probably the first and only mid i've played with where my main thought was controlling the shot, not trying to hit with more pace. I blew my friend Sam off the court 6-2 in the set we played, and normally if i get a set off him it's in a close tiebreak, playing my very best. I've never aced him more than twice in a set, but got 6 by him that day. I felt like the Pistol with it :)

    Gonna be picking up a pair, maybe two pairs, soon here.

    I think it will be the blx88, just with red/yellow lines instead of white...

    I would be surprised if Wilson made a BLX 88. It sold moderately well, but not in Australia, I know that. TWAus was selling them $110 US during the Australian Open trying to get rid of a lot of stock. I think a lot of people have bought them also and gone back to something lighter. Who knows though, perhaps one with a lighter swingweight and slightly ligther static weight will be producded, but then its too close to the BLX90 or K90... :-?

    IMO the blx tour aesthetically is one of the nicest looking racquet's ever in person. Although I completely hate the way it plays...it just looks great.

    Hit with this one today as a demo. I must say, the best racquet for serving I have ever used. Absolute bombs for flat serves, and nice kicks for kick serves (I am just now getting the kick serve down pat). Not as superb for sidespin serves, but still a nice jolt when it touches the ground. For forehands, it feels maneuverable but not quite enough power for me with a heavily topspun shot. I did feel as I flattened out my shot a bit that I could hit it EXACTLY where I wanted, helpful against a fast opponent. Backhand slices oddly seemed to have the most slice of any racquet I have ever tried. I was not expecting this with the 18X20 string pattern, but I am not complaining. This racquet has performed superbly for me, but I am not the average tennis player. (I am around 5'5", not super built, and fast on my feet) Just my two cents.
