Wilson has added a 93 square inch head racquet to its Blade lineup with the KBlade Tour. The Midsize frame, leather grip and 20mm straight beam design all hint towards a serious player's racquet. Our on court testing confirmed the KBlade Tour offers the high level of control advanced players seek. We were also pleasantly surprised to discover a maneuverable response from all areas of the court - much more so than typical with midsized player's racquets. The light and mobile weight also makes the KBlade Tour a great platform racquet for weight and balance customization. We found this one to be quite forgiving given its headsize, offering a nice blend of control and some solid access to spin. The 18/20 string pattern keeps the stringbed taut adding precision to shots from all areas of the court. The combination of maneuverability and control is also evident at net where we found a great response when looking to carve angles or put away volleys. On serve this one is all about consistency and control - thanks to a solid response and good access to spin. As with most player's racquets, pace and power is generated by the player and the KBlade Tour offers a consistent response that allows a player to swing aggressively with confidence. A solid performer from all areas of the court, this one is a good choice for the 4.5+ level player.
Note: These racquets do not come with a head cover.
