Featuring a new metallic green finish that pops from first point to last, the Blade 101L v8 combines a slightly thicker beam with lightweight construction to produce smooth, stable swings. Highlighted by the flashy design, this racket serves up a more arm-friendly option than most in the market. Notable technologies include Top Grip Taper and Parallel Drilling, innovations that allow for easier top-hand grip placement on the two-handed backhand and a more forgiving string bed response, respectively.
