    Ya I'm pretty sure they meant shaft stiffness. Anyways, has anyone tried these rackets? I use to have a K-Tour which was a really nice racket. Wouldn't mind giving Wilson another shot if these rackets are good.

    A team mate bought the BLX wave and decided to try it.
    its way to flexible for me but control and power was really good.
    to me i felt i had a lot more control than power.

    A neighborhood store is running a 50pct discount on Wilson equipment, probably close out sale on 2011 stuff. So I was thinking of picking up a BLX racquet. :)

    I currently play with a Yonex 8000 Light, which is a good all-round 3U strung at 21lbs. Planning to pick up a more head-heavy racquet. 2U or 3U is fine. Can't explain technically, but I play better with weightier racquets. What would be a good bet in the current BLX range?
