The Wilson Tour BLX squash racket is used by men’s pro players Peter Barker of England, Nicolas Müller of Switzerland, and Tom Richards of England.

Apparently this racket is made with basalt fibers. That’s right, basalt, which is just cooled-off lava, straight from a volcano. Which is exactly what people are going to say about you, if you play with this racket.

Check out Peter Barker using the racket against Nick Matthew in this crazy rally from the finals of the 2011 Case Swedish Open. Peter’s moving so well. You might even say he’s flowing like lava.

  • how to know weather this raket is orignal or not ?

    • Hi Haider, thanks for commenting. I’m not sure what you mean on this question… please let me know a bit more and I will try to help! Thanks

  • I just bought 2 of these Wilson Tour BLX (2011) rackets with a 50% discount. Strung and regripped with a Karakal grip, this racket weighs just under the 160 grams. The Wilson site mentions a balancepoint of 35,7 cm; I’ve measured about 36,3 cm which I would call slightly head-heavy.

    Immediately at the first balls I hit with it, it felt good. Great control and feel, with plenty of power “under the hood”. What I like most about these Wilson Tour BLX rackets is their simple, straight and decent design.

    Recommended! :)

    • Thanks for the feedback Tjeerd!

  • Haider asks if the racket is fake or not. Hologram or something?

    I have not seen fake squash rackets, but I bought two Yonex top model badminton rackets in Russia, 8 euros a piece. Well, they were shit obviously, and I knew it.
