This stick will be the new PS 85. It has immense plow thru, power, yet plush on the arm like a VOLK PB 10or Becker DC London Tour. An instant classic. I hear from my Wilson contact that this will be Pete's new stick. He was playing with a Babolat PST 95 but wanted more weight... Wilson supposedly changed their BLX design with him in mind. Pete played in Philly last month and was using a blacked out 93 sq inch, tight patterned, Blade-look a like stick.
I'm looking for pics to back this claim up...
Pics would be nice. Can't find any.
Pete was/is playing with a blacked out PureStorm, with a 98sq.in. head size, a 16x20 pattern and weighted exactly like his old ps85s, balanced even as well. The PstLtd is indeed a 95, 18x20, but it's not the frame Pete was/is rockin'.
Just can't see Pete switchin' to an 18x20 pattern at this point. The Blade98, 16x19, maybe.
