    I had the BFIIs and just sent them in and got a voucher and I'm wondering which one to get too.

    I've read that the 2K10s cushioning is not up to par with the CB and tends to go flat quicker.

    I see you have a prestige mid and a aero pro drive? Why the two complete opposite racquets?

    I used the APDC up until about a year ago. After prematurely buying an APDC, I evaluated my game and found that it didn't really fit me.

    After demoing some rackets the MGPM seem to fit. It gave me a few more mph on my serve, gave me more control, and just seem to allow me to improve my game(I do tend to hit flat sometimes). Disregarding the 10" headsize difference-being that head measures the headsize a little differently; I don't shank more often...probably just as often as I would with the apdc.
    I'm probably going to play around with lead because the stock is starting to feel lighter and lighter every time i play.

    Oh I see. Cool man. I just switched to the youtek version mid from the microgel version. I would say it's not worth switching, so keep your microgels. If anything, the microgels feel a little better...

    I have flat feet so the 2K10 fit me better because they are wider in the forefoot. After trying on both the 2K10's were a better fit. I like the CB 2.3's and probably will them as my next pair. I say go with which ones fit you better.

    I'm a big fan of the CB's in general. Haven't tried the 2k10 as of yet (but definitely will get some when some other colorways come out). The new 2.3s are lighter than the 1.3s and they are very durable. IMO, they are the best shoes I've ever had (and they look great!) I have flat feet as well, and these do a really good job of not making my feet hurt.

    I saw 2k10 at the local store and the outsole was same as vipor vi.
    If you concern about the durability, go with cb 2.3.

    In TW video review of the 2.3s, Danny said is was a narrow to medium width fit.

    I've also heard some people say it's one of the widest Nike tennis shoes.

    Compared to the BV's, BFII, cage IIs, or any recent shoe, how's the width AND length fit compared?
