The k Blade team has a really tight string bed and a nice weight. On tennis warehouse it says the power rating is 'low' which is what i like but is it really low with a 104 sq inch head?

I like this weight and balance too. The power will be low not only because of the string density, but the stiffness. Sub-60 is pretty flexible by todays standards. This gives you a lot of stringing options, like gut w/ better than 16x19 durability.

I think this makes a good doubles stick or all court racquet for faster swinging players. It will not be very stable at that weight, but the low stiffness should keep the comfort level reasonable.

Oooo... it's extended too. Sweet. If you have a fast swing you shoudl try it. If you don't know get some lead with it. ;)

I'm using the KBlade 98 and have compared it with the Tour 93 and Team 104.

I do like the Team 104 and I agree it's not a very powerful racquet - more powerful than the KBlade 98 but much less when compared to the KSurge or KPro Open 100.

The powerholes thingy also adds a little power to shots but the drawback is you have to swing fully to get good control. Also, the racquet vibrates a lot during impact and a vibration dampener is recommended.

Hence, I only recommend the Team 104 to intermediate to advanced players who have a full stroke. Good luck!

I would have to agree. When I demoed the Team a couple of months ago I was very disappointed with the amount of vibration, especially on volleys.

I like the white grommet thingy. Best is the KBlade 98 but the matt colour of the Tour 93 is cool too.

All 3 go well with the Black/Gold (Super) Six bag, though a little flashy... :)

K Blade Team 104 SQ" 18 X 19 - is that a tight string bed :shock:

I have a 95 SQ" with 18 X 20 and it isn't tight at all, it's kind of normal to me.

A 104 SQ" with a 18 X 19 string bed.....and someone calls that "a tight string bed" WoW :shock:

I say go for it! I tihnk the only probablame is getting used to another racquet afterwards. 1. 27.3inches is not a average length, 2. 57 stiffness is average either in the tour now, 3. the head of 104 is not much used compared to alot of the 95/98's p[eople use now adays.
