The Vertex 2 BLX™ (WRT896610) is Wilson's new flagship of singles and doubles badminton racket. The Vertex 2 BLX™ is an improvement in STABILITY and FEEL from the original Vertex badminton racket. By implementing Wilson Pump-Up design near the t-joint, the racket provide better stability by reducing torque and improve performance. Through the use of Ampli-Feel design, the player can feel more of their shot without the vibration that could hurt the hand, arm, and body.

BLX™ is the new Wilson racket technology engineered with BASALT fibers combining proprietary frame, grommet and grip technologies for THE PERFECT FEEL. BLX™ allows the manufacturer, in this case Wilson Sporting Goods, to fine tune the composition, geometry, grommets and grip of each racket to maximize the feel for each player type. All is left is for the stringer or retailer, e.g. Badminton Alley, to customize the right string and tension to meet the customer type of play. The addition of BASALT fibers to the graphite matrix filters out the unwanted, extreme frequencies that are uncomfortable and distracting from the pure sensation of the racket to achieve a cleaner feel at shuttlecock contact.

This is one solid racket! September 24, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ramona, CA United States  
I am an intermediate badminton player and currently own a  Yonex Voltric 70, Arcsaber 10 PG, and Nanospeed 100.  Where I live, there is no way to test out rackets so I have a racket of every category. I do not currently own the Wilson  Vertex 2 BLX yet, but I was fortunate enough to know a former professional nice enough to lend me his. This racket is easily more solid feeling than any of the rackets I own. The Vertex 2 is madly underrated. Clears were effortless, and defense was a breeze. Backhands, were phenomenal  I mean I can smash with my backhand as strong as most my friends' forehand smashes, let alone my forehand. As for the former pro, he is a man named Sarun Vivatpatanakul originally from Thailand. I am sold on this racket thanks to him. I'll be buying it in a few weeks when I got the $$$.
