    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    Similar to the v7 but again - different string and tension makes a big difference. When comparing new version, I like to typically have same setup i have been using in old model

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    As I'm telling everyone who emailed me - I have no info on the stiffness rating. All I can confirm is there is carbon 45 mapping or whatever it is, and the old technology was removed. I hit with a completely different string/tension/grip size than I normally have with my V7 and my V7s have a lot...

    Wilson Blade update delayed

    The photos posted above are of a mock up, it doesn't look like that. The top of the hoop is black and the rest is an iridescent dark green. Looks green in the sun and more brown and muted in low light. There will be a blade 100 as well.

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    No worries! Interesting about the paint.. if you remember the BLX juice pro (96 sq inch I believe) and I think a couple other sticks from that era, they had a finish similar to which you are describing.. it wasn't quite matte and wasn't quite glossy. It was almost like a glossy paintjob that...

    Is it gloss or matte paint? Also, when you say 12 o'clock, are you talking about the top of the hoop? If so, the current one is green at 12 o'clock. Not being a stickler, just trying to better understand the cosmetic update. My rep will only show me in person.. thanks!

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    My rep said he could come show me the Blade v8 today but I was too busy to meet with him. I'd assume there is going to be some social media content soon. Two weeks ago he said he got them but couldn't show them at all... so we are getting closer

    Wilson Pro Labs: Blade Pro Official Thread

    As I posted last night, your stringer will end up not following these instructions because they don't make sense in terms of tie offs and starting knots.. there is no way any stringer is getting a second string through 6H.. the Main tie off(s) should be 8H and the starting knot for the crosses...

    Wilson Pro Labs: Blade Pro Official Thread

    Edit : not start crosses at 6H. First cross starts at 7 duh, but I meant knot at 6H.

    Wilson Pro Labs: Blade Pro Official Thread

    If you look at Wilson's stringing instructions for the 16x19 it says tie off mains at 6H and start crosses at 6H.. (for two piece) obviously nobody is doing 2 knots thru one hole.. But even one looks to not be possible. I just strung mine that arrived today and it should be 8H and 5H shouldn't...
