The BLX Tidal Force offers all around performance. Players will find a light weight ease of swing with a pleasant response. From the baseline, our TW testers found plenty of mobility, allowing for accelerated racquet head speed. This, along with the open 16/19 string pattern, allowed for a spin-friendly response, adding to the control. The basalt in the BLX technology also helps naturally reduce vibration, making for a solid, more comfortable feel. At net, the maneuverability will shine, allowing the racquet to get into proper position for solid volleys. From there, the crisp response gets volleys deep into the court. An already good hit in stock form, the BLX Tidal Force offers plenty of room for stronger players looking to modify to preferred specs. All in all, the BLX Tidal Force is a good option for intermediate players looking for a nice blend of controllable power and precision.
