Braided Graphite + Basalt
In this revolutionary new layup, Wilson braids Basalt with carbon graphite fiber throghout the entire frame. This is the first time Basalt has been braided. Since Basalt is so elastic, it allows the racquet's hoop to flex in ways that improve feel, dwell time and control.
An evolution of Clash's revolutionary technology, FeelFlex produces a more connected feel while better complimenting the modern, vertical swing path. Proprietary carbon mapping strategically placed throughout the frame provides additional stability and flexibility through the swing, while maintaining the feel Blade players know and love.
