Wilson Ripper BLX Squash Racket

The Wilson Ripper BLX is a new version of the Wilson Ripper. I’m not sure whether to rip my opponent to shreds, or just read a bodice-ripper.

Looks like it’s only available in New Zealand at the moment!

Thanks to Joe Magor from CM Stringers for the tip.

Here’s Nicolas Mueller, sporting this racket at the 2014 El Gouna Open:

    I use a similar version of the Wilson Ripper 140, and it is my favorite racquet. Best blend of power and control, with just enough stiffness. I had played with the Wilson Hyperhammer 120, and while they have a similar feel, the heavy weight comes across smoother on shots.

    On another note, after 4 months of regular club play, the Ripper cracked at the neck. My local pro told me to call WIlson, which did, and after a few emailed pictures and proof of purchase, the replaced the racquet. Truly a great company, and a great racquet.
