I got a chance to see one recently, unstrung,,
blade line ( green camo), Paint job is pretty cool,
the pro staff line looks more interesting to me..

I saw them online. I like the camo-look. I think they’re available for junior racquets though. If they ever make them full size, I’d get one.

I don't mind companies trying interesting things including paint jobs.
Compared to the 80's and 90's they are quite conservative these days. I think Wilson should include some of their heavier frames with this treatment. They also have camo overgrips to match.

Is it still the soft feel paint that flakes off or is it new paint composition? Not on any of the Wilson frames that I would use so don’t have an opinion.

Hard smooth paint, not the velvet pj..
I was looking at a blade 98L ( green camo),,
That would be a huge plus if they put it on the other frames. Guess for now I am playing with 3 Black RF97’s which look like they are slowly getting sandblasted. Would be nice if eventually I could send them back to Wilson for updated paint jobs without costing an arm and a leg.

Seeing as how they are all the LIGHT models in the lines they represent it is safe to assume they are for or at least aimed at juniors transitioning into adult racquets to that end it makes perfect sense. For those using them as platform racquets it gives a different option with the paint job. No harm no foul here in my mind.

I wouldn't mind seeing the camo paint jobs on their heavier stuff not just the UL range. I think it's good to see companies trying different ideas. What they also need to do is to fix the consistency of their SW's as well and maybe the current Blade range needs a re-thing. Lot of the young guys I've been talking to prefer the previous versions due as they were less clunky.

It's a shame they ruin it with the giant orange Wilson on the throat. I guess that's to help you find it when you set it down somewhere.

They took their cue from the Australian armed forces camo uniforms, they have a reflective band sewn in - kind of defeats the whole camouflage idea.

We just unpacked camo overgrips as well,,
same color schemes togo with the rakets..
got one to try, sofar though the camo overgrips feel plasticky like the gamma.overgrips with the camo print,,, without trying it on court, I can tell its not gonna be absorbent, and get slick real fast,,,
