The Wilson Blade 104 updates the BLX Blade Team with a black cosmetic and Amplifeel technology. Intermediates looking for comfort and power should find a lot to like about this one. The Amplifeel technology enhances the feel, while the open pattern provides a lively and comfy response. With its very manageable swingweight (308 RDC) and extended 27.5 length, this racquet swings fast from the baseline, providing easy access to spin and pace. The dense 18x19 pattern does a good job controlling the pop. The added length comes in handy on serves, where the extra leverage is perfect for putting heavy action on the ball. At net, this one feels very fast, making it great for reaction volleys and put aways. The extra length and 104 square inch head also helps with reach. A great option for 3.5+ all-court players or doubles specialists looking for maneuverability and controllable power.
