The Widow-X has been tailored to be slightly looser than the Widow with more stick on the stick side. The fast side is the same as the Widow. The slow side has more bite for blocking, cutting, rolling and flop shots. The stick side has more flex than the Widow-B and does not have the Speed Control technology dots. Remember, the side with the Stars is the slower side (in most conditions). The primary difference is the flex of the fabric is better and the friction around the edges are minimal. What this means is the bag is more capable of slipping into the hole. It is better at working around bags and going in the back door. It is more forgiving when the bag lands slightly on edge. This bag has been designed to be loose and forgiving but also controllable in the hand. Give this bag about 10-20 games to break in.
