The Blade 104 v7 is a soft playing racquet with a large
104 head, good power, and good comfort. It has a control oriented flex which makes
it a tournament winning racquet. This racquet is for the strong player who wants
a bit of power, excellent control, and a large head.
In addition it is a terrific racquet for the 3.5+ player who wants to
use the more flexible players style racquet, but who needs extra power.
While there are major changes to the construction of the v7, the overall difference
in play shows as a nice overall improvement.  One bigger change is using a more open
16x19 all-court oriented string pattern as compared to the prior more back-court oriented 18x19.
The v7 (seventh version) of the Blade features a softer flex for comfort and touch.
21st century computer generated carbon mapping (Wilson Stable Feel
) provides high torsional stiffness to maintain control.
The result is a soft feel, supple, highly controllable, all court racquet.
(Note: old technology softer flex racquets were soft all over for less control.)
