Webeler Tries First New Paddle in 9 Years
Evan Webeler used a new paddle for the first time in nine years, switching from his 395g 2007 Wilson (K) Blade (still with the original grip) to a much lighter 370g Wilson Blade Smart. Unfortunately, Webeler's new paddle was not nearly as successful as Brockhoff's new hip. He went 0-3 on a court with Rob Bakker, Doug Jones and Eric Toth. In case Webeler wants to switch back, that old 2007 Wilson K thing can still be purchased new online.
