    Btw that plastic on the grip weighs 2 grams so all in all had to add 2 grams of lead to make it as written

    PP, you hit with the new 2013 Blade 18/20? I am also a current PSTGT user but I find it a bit demanding now and I'm looking to switch to something that will allow me to transition better and not be sluggish on mid court balls. Behind the baseline grinding, I am able to hold my own but I am starting to feel like my approach shots and put away shots are declining because of the heavier static weight as well as SW.

    Something I am indeed concerned with is that I didn't really enjoy the BLX Blade... is there anything you can tell me about the new one that might convince me to be a bit more excited with the demoing of the new 2013 Blade? I'll try it regardless!

    I am planning on getting the 16x19 soon so I will be able to post my review on it and compare against the PSTGT but sitting on the fence right with the 18x20 string pattern only because I have never been able to hit with sufficient depth using a 18x20 string pattern racquets in past demos.

    I prefer a more open string pattern so I am still undecided about the BLX Blade 18x20 and BLX Blade Tour 18x20 as well.
