    lol so I saw all these fan clubs and thought "where's the love for wilson???" So this a thread for all those Wilson lovers out there :).

    I at the moment have the Recon BLX and Wave BLX and I love the way they feel and play

    I have a fierce blx,bg66 20lb all round...haven got a chance to play with it yet

    Low tension cos I have tennis elbow and golfer's elbow so need either very flexible shaft or very low tension

    A fierce blx?!?! I've never heard of that. What site sells it? Wow that sucks man. I had tennis elbow when I went from 23 lbs to 25 but then I just wrapped an extra grip on my racket to reduce the vibration. However, since I did not like the extra thickness I just went down to 24 and went back to the thinner grip.

    Although I'm going back to 25 now...think I'll be able to handle it. Last time I think I just did too large of a jump from 23 lbs to 25 lbs

    wilson klite - don't play with it much these days, but still works great when I have a day off with my other rackets.

    I used to have a klite but it clashed with my partner's racket in a tournament :(. Although thats why I bought the Wave, to replace it. Its like the klite 2.0 lol

    hope your new wave racket is working well for you :)

    the babolat satelite 6.5 power or essential seems like a good alternative as well. BUt slightly heavier though.

    Got it at a sports shop here in sg,I think the fierce is only available in Asia Here is the link http://www.wilson.co.jp/mobile/products/index.html?brand=badminton#_prodimgHere....all in jap but click on the first link and it will bring u to all the blx they have for Asia.

    I am a leisure player so I don't need so high tension or such a stiff racket.

    anyways as far as the injury is concerned,well got it from bowling,am using one of the cream and aid call xtensor to help the recovery,so far so good

    What flex are you used to? I used the Klite before the Recon and it also took me a while to get used to...although once you get used to the recon its a sweet racket. Gives a lot of power

    Well,when I played tennis briefly back in school about 20years ago(oh well,did not continue cos I suck at it)...was already using Wilson rackets,and now coming into badminton as a complete newbie or rather intermediate player,I was kinda lost with all those brands out there except the traditional yonex n Carlton,but when I went shopping for rackets,I discovered that Wilson rackets kinda suit me cos they are mostly flexible enough for my tennis and golfer's elbow to take the stress,and they are very flashy in color...and not many players use them as compared to the likes of yonex n Li Ning n victor,so naturally,it would be a choice for me to go to...anyways I am just a leisure player so it's still quite ok for me to be using Wilson rackets,not to mention they got quite a few good product endorsers as well,one of them being sho sasaki who is a south paw like me,the other south paw would be LD but then too many followers of his products hahaha...And hope they do not come out too fast on the new products,not when I haven complete the blx series in the Asia and Europe models wakakakaka
