Wilson's iconic Blade series version 8 model. The Blade 100L v8 pairs a captivating design with a new layup to better accommodate the more modern, vertical swing path commonly used by competitive players.

Wilson's all-new version 8 Blade's headline innovation FORTYFIVE, manages to increase both the flexibility and stability of the frame to lend supreme feel for the ball on every shot. Still characterized by its superior presence in the hands of the best players in the world, this evolution of Blade rewards aggressive, precise ball-strikers with a top-tier blend of connected-to-the-ball feel, torsional stability and color-shifting design to wow teammates and opponents alike.

Another great update to the Blade v8 includes DirectConnect in which Wilson extends the carbon fiber handle to connect directly to the end cap for improved feel and enhanced torsional stability. Wilson also includes Top Grip Taper which provides a better feel for top-hand grip placement.

Wilson continues the use of a Braided Graphite + Basalt composition improves the flex of the racquet to produce enhanced feel and control. Parallel Drilling provides a consistent, more forgiving string bed response. The Ergonomic End Cap helps yield improved comfort and playability.

Overall, the Blade 100L v8 features a 100 square-inch head, with a lighter 10.7 ounce-strung weight to go with a more open 16x19 string pattern -- all adding up to that traditional feeling racquet tailored towards that transitioning junior and or the intermediate level player.

Great Upgrade
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I've been playing with my old Sledgehammer for a little too long and updated to a new Blade 100L. I'm just breaking it in but, so far, it seems to be a solid platform for baseline play and is light enough for those of us who still like to get to the net...And us slightly older guys who enjoy some doubles from time to time. Very pleased with the accuracy and touch and, with the right strings, great top and back spin. Highly recommend this racket.

I love the power and control the Blade gives me. It feels solid at net and on the baseline. The weight of the racquet is perfect for me.

Blade 100L V.8 Review
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I purchased the Blade to replace my ProKennex kinetic K10 305. I switched from Wilson to ProKennex years ago when I was having a lot of shoulder, tennis elbow issues. I read the review for the Blade and heard it was pretty easy on the arm and so far that has been true. I’m very happy with the extra power and spin. I only play doubles now and my volleys have been a little crisper and more accurate. The only thing I might change is the string. I went with Big Banger Luxilon and I started getting a little tennis elbow in my left arm from my two handed backhand. All the guys at my club said I need to switch to a more forgiving string. Definitely recommend the Blade racquet.

This is a well balanced racket. It gave me a nice pop and generated nice top spin.
