Gamma Big Bubba would get my vote as the ugliest. Nothing wrong with the paint , just the shape and size is atrocious.

Also, for (dis)honorable mention, the Bards from the 80's make my ugliest list because of their odd shape. The paint jobs were magnificent, but the shape was hideous. The width of a wood racquet, the length of a super-oversize.

i.prestige was one of the most different pjs at the time. Matte black with grey....to bad the first batch suffered from a rubbery peel. It was cool in my opinion.

Wilson Prostaff Torch. Easy. I don't see how it's even possible to make an uglier racquet.

I can't believe you put up Pure Drive. I think that's a really nice looking racquet. All black with some trimming of blue.

K90 is kind of ugly and feminine looking in white! The red flame was suppose to make it more masculine but it does not!

I think the BLX gets the most votes, and deservedly so, because it is too big of a disappointment... Yea the Torch is outright fugly, but people weren't expecting much for a niche stick anyway. The BLX, on the other hand, is the face of the franchise, and there was super high expectations following the N and K paintjobs.

oh yes there were, instead of people being blown away, they were either disgusted, or forced to get used to the design.

I remember the same hate for the K frames too. Eventually in 3 years people will say how good BLX looked and how bad/disappointing the Wilson 2013 stuff is.

Everyone said Kfactors are extremely ugly and now everybody loves them haha.

oh yeh, i'm def digging them now, the line work on them is nice, i'll just probably hold out for the blx ps 6.0 if they decide to reincarnate it again. it's nice when wilson decides to limit their color pallete to mostly black with splashes of color. kps, ps tour 90, ps 6.0 mid, ps classic. i see so much potential for this new line's use of lines on the sticks, and the fonts/sizes they chose accompany them nicely.

The Torch takes it. The only good thing with that name is that you can set it on fire giving it the function it was meant for.

I thought the BLX looked awful until I saw them in person. Much better in person to be honest.
I've seen them in person, and they are as bad in the photos, total bollocks I reckon:shock:

The K factors looked better in person than in photos, but the BLX just look awful even in person, really bad!

I have agree that the BLX Tour is real eyesore. Why do racquets these days in general have to be multi-colored with a million hidious stripes (graphics) packed on them?!

uLLoX looks horrible especially the one Justine plays with at the moment, where blue and orange are mixed together.

I just bought 4 of the uLLoX 6.1 95 18x20, haven't receiived them get, but don't like the PJ - but the black, red and white at least MIX together pretty decent, but hope they look better LIVE IN PERSON though :)
