The Blade 100 v8 offers Blade's signature feel along with an excellent blend of dynamic design, power and control for competitive players. Equipped with all-new FORTYFIVE°, a patent-protected carbon construction, this racket adds a few degrees of flexibility and stability from its previous version to create excellent feel for the ball. Boasting a slightly thicker beam than other Blade models for a boost of power and flashing a unique color-shifting elastic finish between shades of green and copper, this racket turns heads with both its looks and its next-level performance.
Braided Graphite + Basalt
Elastic and reactive material combination improves the flex of a racket to increase ball contact with the strings for enhanced feel and greater control.
Grommet construction provides a consistent, more forgiving string bed response while dramatically increasing the sweet spot.
Top Grip Taper
Tapered grip lends better feel for top-handed grip placement on two-handed backhand.
Patent-protected frame layup produces more connected-to-the-ball feel while better complementing the more modern, vertical swing path. Material increases both flexibility and stability without compromise through the swing.
Carbon fibre handle extends to directly connect with end cap for improved feel and enhanced torsional stability.
