Went to Sport Chalet today, and I saw this racquet. The paint job looked very similar to the K Blade. The specs really interested me. It has a 100 inch head, 22mm beam, somewhat HL (even with that cardboard on the head), and a very nice weight. It would be a great racquet if you leaded it up a bit.

Anyone seen or played with this racquet before?

I'd avoid it, the price(39.99) immediately indicates it's most likely a very low end wilson

I've seen this before.. the paintjob is very similar to the kblade tour, but it's definitely a lower end stick. I just bough a radical instead myself. Not a higher quality stick

I am not sure about all of the chain stores, but I know that 5 years ago Large5 used to have actual running line quality racquets at good prices, just 1-3 years old technology though. Now they have 99% cheap frames painted to look like current frame technology. I try to tell anyone that says they are going to get into tennis, that if they are serious, let me help them find a good frame on closeout at somewhere like... oh....Tennis Warehouse...yah, that's a good place to start.:wink:

At that price, I'm not going to expect quality at all. But I was just curious, since it looks so interesting to use.
Ehh, I'll tell one of the JV high school players to get it, and I can try it out!!

I know right? It just ****ed me off when I even see a B 5 racquet! I mean like... Liquidmetal Genesis? N Vision? K Seven? Air O Scream?
