    Morning Everyone
    I am very excited to have got my new BLX blade 98 but on further inspection the specs printed on the inside of the throat don't quite match the specs listed on the various tennis websites.
    I was wondering if anyone else had encountered this or had an explanation for me?

    My Blade
    Balance - 32.5cm / 6pts HL
    Rec Tension - 24-28kg / 53 - 63lbs

    The main thing I was concerned about was the swing weight which reads 6pts (which is what the Blade Tour is) when it should read 2pts and what a difference this would make?

    TW takes measurements from strung racquets...

    I say this with the best possible intent, but before you make your first post there should be a series of compulsory questions to be answered. The strung/unstrung issue would be one question.

    They've upped the recommended tension of the racquet, and that is different from TW specs (and the kblade?).
