Racket review: Wilson Three BLX


This particular power-packed beast takes comfort a step further

A power-packed frame with comfort at its core, the Wilson Three BLX is ideal for baseliners seeking more accuracy

If bad vibes have put you off your game, check out the Three. Wilson’s basalt-infused BLX frames siphon off unwanted vibrations to send the key feedback through to the player’s hand – good enough for Roger Federer and Serena Williams, it would seem – but this particular power-packed beast takes comfort a step further.

There’s also the triad throat design, which essentially adds an extra layer of buffering by introducing an extra ‘V’ between the handle and the hoop of the frame. All of this improves the feel of what would otherwise be a brute of a racket for baseliners seeking more accuracy.
