Feel is the magic word for 2010-11. Every year racquets get lighter, stiffer, and more powerful, but at what price? Wilson has found a way for you to have it all! Basalt fibers woven into the graphite have incredible vibration resistance eliminating the unwanted feedback and creating the perfect feel for the player. BLX Technology combined with a bold new frame design make these racquets the player's best friend on the court!

The Wilson Lockjaw BLX Racquet, coming in at 160 grams unstrung, is the lightest racquet in the line. With the light weight and standard string pattern, the Lockjaw BLX will provide excellent maneuverability and control. This is a great racquet for the advanced and tournament player.

Comments: It took a while to get us to this racquet's but it works really well.  The only problem that I had was that the standard strings that came with it started to frey right away and then broke after a few uses.

Comments: I tried a demo RX160 and liked it but wasn't happy with the vibration feedback. Purchased the BLX and love it.  I have been trying to find the perfect weapon and have found it in this racquet.

Comments: I'm having trouble getting used to this racquet.  Compared to the RX160 from last year, this racquet has less snap and power, but feels smooth.  I haven't been able to lock in my swing after playing with it for a week so I'm going back to last years racquet.  The lockjaw with its basalt construction is a better quality but the shape of the frame looks awkward and the head feels like a tennis racquet.  Hopefully next year they'll find a better balance.
