    It's a nice frame, great for doubles. Ex-wife used to use the earlier generation.

    This racquet is reincarnated as the Blx pro open and K pro open. The whole series of racquets are great frames.

    I've got the Npro 18x18 pattern and it's a solid stick. Very manuverable and stable. Great balanced and evenly spaced string bed. I'm not playing with it anymore. So if someone is interested in giving it a hit, email me with an offer.

    Hmm I've used the N Pro Opens for a year or so, never got the hang of them. Shots all over the place and all that.

    I then changed to the NBlade, and got fantastic reliability, control&consistency.

    Still using mine. Been a good stick. Thinking of making a change though. Want something a little more consistent, a little more stable, and maybe slightly heavier. Was actually considering trying the new Blade. Thoughts? My main concern is going to the tighter string pattern.

    Do the BLX Pro Open and the kPro Open have the nfoam stuff in them like the nPro Open does?

    My GF has one, and to be honest I'd love to own one too. I'm buying if anyone is selling ;)

    I played that frame for about a week. Very stiff..no feel in my case. I think the n-code (foam) material really made the frame play muted. I was coming from using the HPS Surge 5.1..which as really the best of the Surges IMO. I sold the Npro Open and went back to the HPS Surge 5.1. The paint and the PJ on the nPro Open was also very poor.

    I play with the blade tour blx, my gf has this racquets but is changing to dunlop bio. Is this a good backup racquet? For days my arm hurts, or hit everything but the ball?
