Basalt and amplifeel are comfort technologies, not game improvement technologies. Ultra stiff graphite today take its toll on your body (while it has game improvement benefits), so BLX and Amplifeel are designed to allow a player to use ultra stiff graphite without pain.

Traditional graphite loses flex quickly and cave in in due time. The POG can't handle poly's without losing extreme power. A POG with poly is how a man turns into a 12 year old girl.
When their tennis really matters, Babolat Reps use a Wilson.
