The update to Venus and Serena Williams' racquet of choice, Wilson's Blade 104 delivers an impressive blend of power, control and feel. Increased feel comes from the redesigned Graphite + Basalt construction which results in a more flexible response with greater dwell time. The extended length (27.5") and low swingweight (309 RDC) make this racquet swing easily through the air, resulting in great spin potential. The relatively dense 18x19 string pattern helps control the ball and makes placing shots very easy. The 104 square inch head provides a big sweet spot and lots of margin for error. This is a great update to racquet targeted towards intermediate to advanced players that are looking for a nice blend of power and control and a little larger than average head size.
This racquet is Sony Sensor compatible.

Braided Graphite + Basalt:
In this revolutionary new layout, Wilson braids Basalt with carbon graphite fiber throghout the entire frame. This is the first time Basalt has been braided. Since Basalt is so elastic, it allows the racquet's hoop to flex in ways that improve feel, dwell time, and control.
