Wilson racquet designed for control – with smaller closed-shape head. But the head-heavy balance provides a decent power as well.

Reviews:

In 2014, the Tour 138 BLX replaced the older model, Wilson Tour BLX – and the design has not changed much. The smaller, 467 sq cm classic-shape head offers great control, precision and accuracy while the BLX technology (using basalt fibers in the frame) lessens vibrations and improves feedback and feel.

Wilson Tour 138 BLX

the 2015 version

However, this squash racquet provides a good amount of power as well, thanks to the slight head-heavy balance and not so dense string pattern. It isn’t the lightest racket on the market but players report it is very well balanced.

And in 2015 a new version appeared with slightly different design.
