    Hi,

    I know that some people changed the buttcaps of those racquets (because by default it says "BLX" all of the sudden), so I have the question related to it.

    Is the handle hollow or not? Thank you in advance.

    Kind regards,

    Wilson does not make hollow frames.

    Thank you both. Pity -- I wanted to change the balance to make handle more heavy. However if I don't put anything inside, it would mean making handle more thick.

    You can still make the handle heavier, which is the same as making your racquet more head light. You can follow TW instructions on applying lead tape to the bottom of the throat or just inside the handle near the buttcap. You can also replace the standard grip with a leather grip. If you're looking to make the handle much heavier, you can use a heavier leather grip from either Dunlop or Volkl.

    not all their frames are foam-filled. some have foam in the handle, some do not. and the six one tour is the only one completely filled with foam i believe. though i could be wrong, not really a wilson guy

    I made the handle heavier anyway. I just removed the foam and put sylicone in.

    The counterfeit Wilson rackets are usually hollow. The more recent counterfeit ones have foam now.

    If buying Wilson, expect foam in the handle. Don't listen to these e Bay buyers who think their hollow Wilson's are authentic.
