The racket has very similar stats to its predecessor, the Blade V7. However, early users have mentioned noticing more power, as well as the 45 degree graphite "Braid 45" technology previously featured in the Pro Staff v13. This means that the graphite and aramid fibers in the racket are braided at a 45 degree angle, improving feel and stability.


The most obvious update will be the racket cosmetics. The racket will feature an iridescent green design that shimmer from copper to green in different lightings. Photos can be seen of the test racket as well as Milos Raonic's customized pro stock.


- Direct Connect Handle Technology: 15% more stability than the Wilson Blade V7

- Bio-based materials reduce environmental impact of the bumper, grommet, and end cap.
