The Wilson BLX Whip 170 racquet features a revolutionary new Power Hinge design at the base of the string bed to enlarge the sweetspot.  Moving up to 5mm in either direction, the Power Hinge provides maximum string bed movement for ultimate power.  Players at any skill level will love the incredible vibration resistance characteristic of Wilson's BLX frame materials.  A 5 point head-heavy balance and 148 swingweight perfectly compliment this classic middleweight racquet's strung weight of 186 grams.

Comments: I've been playing with this racquet for about a month.  It is without a doubt the most powerful racquet I have ever hit with!  The power hinge is as advertised.  If you want to improve your power game this is the racquet!

Comments: I demoed this after using a 205g Eforce.  After I got used to it, my game increased literally from a C+ player to a solid B, boarderline B+ player.  Power is not quite as great as with my eforce but boy is the accuracy better.  I never thought a racquet could make such a difference.
