Wilson Launches New Visible FX Technology

January 19, 2009

Chicago — Wilson Racquet Sports has incorporated a new technology in their [K] Factor Line of frames for 2009.

The next generation of [K] Factor tennis rackets is called FX which means, [K] Factors multiplied. It utilizes a “Quad Shaft” construction in the throat area of the racket with improved distribution of weight. Quad Shaft means the throat of the racket has 4 shafts vs. the conventional 2, which ultimately means more stability. This technology provides the racket with 23% more “torsional” stability and more evenly distributed mass resulting in more control. Four key technologies are incorporated in the FX line: [K]arophite Black, [K]onnector, [K]ontour Yoke, [K]ompact Center. As a result of these technologies, there are three key benefits: increased feel, more strength and stability, and bigger sweet spot. All of these factors contribute to 64% more [K]ontrol.

“The new FX line offers what every level of player needs: stability”, said Cory Springer, Global Business Director of Rackets for Wilson Racquet Sports. “We added this technology to seven specific models which we are confident will enhance their performance to the highest level.”

This feature can be found in our new [K] One.FX, [K] Three.FX, [K] Four.FX, [K] Zen Team.FX, [K]obra Team.FX, [K] Pro Team.FX and K Tour Team.FX. Wilson is hosting a sweepstakes that will award one winner per month an FX racket of their choice. To enter the sweepstakes please visit this Win Free FX Racket link.
