In 2019, Wilson introduced the new family of Blades. The Blade 104 v7, weighing in at 10.2 oz unstrung, providing a 104 sq inch head size, and having an extra 1/2 inch in racquet length, will provide a comfortable feeling and great forgiveness on off centered hits. In addition, the lower stiffness rating in this frame will cause players to rejoice with happiness. Compared to previous generations, this update has FeelFlex technology within it providing increased flexibility without sacrificing stability. Adding that combined with Carbon Mapping (torsional stability) lets the racquet bend to provide extra power by not giving up control. Feel is desired and achieved while continuing the Blade's history of providing crisp/controlled shots. The Blade is a perfect net player's frame with the solid plow and with the larger head size plus extra length, no ball will pass you by at the net! No matter if you are at the baseline hitting precision shots or serving and volleying, the Blade 104 can keep up with any shot! Final Thought: The updated 104 v7 is a great racquet that allows for low or high intermediate players to find success no matter in singles or doubles! The slightly larger head adds forgiveness without sacrificing the control Blades are known for. Concerning the weight, this Blade has enough not to be pushed around yet still allows for ease of movement. When striking volleys, the Blade is crisp and hits the mark as well as any racquet in this class! "Demo today, buy tomorrow!"
