BLX is the new Wilson badminton racket technology engineered with BASALT fibers also combining proprietary frame, grommet and grip technologies for THE PERFECT FEEL.
Basalt is a natural volcanic rock that can be used in manufacturing and made into ultrafine gold fibers. Basalt fibers are woven longitudinally with Wilson exclusive [K]arophite Black to create the most advanced composite in the industry. Like noise-cancelling headphones are filtering out unwanted external noise, Basalt added to the matrix filters the unwanted extreme frequencies in the racket. BLX, the new Wilson technology delivers a cleaner feedback and better sensation. (BL) stands for basalt which is combined with (X) other variables and all are connected together for the PERFECT FEEL.
Wilson's innovations allow their athletes to stay ahead of their competitors and keep improving their game. BLX is just another example of how Wilson continues to provide professional badminton players, as well as millions of players around the world, with the most revolutionary technology.
