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.
