The Nishikori special, Burn 95 is the most control oriented frame in the Burn family.
A smaller sweet spot offers a more crisp feel while a slight weight increase stabilizes the frame for more touch and accuracy. With a low flex rating of 68 RA and a slightly extended length, the Burn 95 is a great racquet for players with long, fast strokes who enjoy baseline rallies and precision shots. The extra length is also great for getting a little extra zip on those serves! Cosmetically this racquet is different from the Burn 100 series in that the grey sections are glossy instead of the matte finish, Nishikori likes to stand out on court, maybe you do to.
Originally designed for the aerospace industry, Countervail this is a revolutionary shock dampening material that is currently being used in everything from high performance bikes to surfboards. While it is great at dampening shock and protecting the body from the rigours of training and competition, the best thing about this technology is that it does not change the feel of the racquet.
Intermediate and experienced players looking for control and a traditional feel similar to the old (K) Tour from Wilson will easily transition to the Burn 95.

Countervail is a patented, one-of-a-kind, layered carbon fiber, originally designed for the aerospace industry to dissipate vibrational energy in airplanes and space vehicles. Wilson LABS, the innovation hub at Wilson, has strategically placed precise amounts of the technology into specific areas of each Blade racket frame to give tennis players meaningful and cumulative physiological benefits over time, including maximum energy, particularly in late sets or long matches, and less fatigue. As a result, athletes will have more control over his/her shots and recover from training and matches faster.
