The Vertex BLX™ (WRT817010) is Wilson's new flagship of doubles badminton racket. The Vertex BLX™ is an improvement in FEEL of the KFactor KBrave badminton racket through the use of BLX™. It is the most versatile racket in Wilson line redefined with an improved level of feel thanks to the BLX™ technology. It is World Champion Jonas Rasmussen's racket of choice.
"I fell in love with the new Vertex BLX immediately. The perfect feel I have playing this racket put my game on a whole new level", Jonas Rasmussen said after trying his new racket. "As a doubles player I have to adapt quickly during the game and the Vertex BLX provides that versatility I require to be successful."
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.
