TECHNOLOGY

FORTYFIVE°

DIRECTCONNECT
New carbon fiber handle technology constructed directly to the endcap that increases tortional stability for enhanced power and feel. 

AGIPLAST BUMPERS & GROMMETS

DESIGN DNA

COLOR-SHIFTING DESIGN
Blade v8 pushes design boundaries while staying true to the philosophy  of uncontaminated racket design. This time it’s manifested through a bold colorway that shifts through a landscape of colors as you swing — from an earthy green to elemental copper.  The rest is in the meticulous details, creating a racket that wants to be held for the player bold enough to pick one up.
