The Wilson Matrix BLX (WRT817400) badminton racket is a new control racket for players looking for great combination of versatility and feel. The Wilson Matrix BLX (WRT817400) weighs approximately 85 grams (4U), has medium stiff shaft, and has a balance of 29.3cm for an all around toward offensive game. This racket is one of our customer's favorite offering excellent feel, control and power.

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.

Control Base: Special innovative hoop engineering design for maximum torsional stability
Dual Connect Top Cap: multi component construction providing IMMEDIATE racket feedback

5 of 5 Very nice racket... October 2, 2011
Reviewer: Evan from Oxford, OH United States  
Picked this racket up about a month and a half ago.  Took some getting used to versus my n1, but I am very happy with it.  Strung at 24 pounds, it clears easily while still providing me with control at the net.  Not as much smash power as the n1, but I bought this one for doubles.  It is a great middle ground between an ultra-maneuverable racket and a power racket.

5 of 5 Incredible Racket May 10, 2011
Reviewer: Stephen M. from CA United States  
Never thought that this Wilson $90 racket can be so good. Bought it for my brother but he likes my racket, ArcSaber 5. So I have to use this racket. I strung it with BG80 at 24 lbs and this racket just explode.

My smash can be heard throughout the gym with this racket. I strung my Arc 5 the same way and I couldn't get even 3/4 the power of this racket. This BLX Matrix is really powerful.

Control is also very good. No problem on my defense. Somehow everything just feels good with this racket.
