    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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)

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