    For any of thise that have hit with the new N-Blade (98) can you let me know if you feel it is elbow/shoulder friendly. I am recovering from some shoulder surgery and was looking for something a little lighter than my current MW200G. While the swingweight seems a little high, all of the other specs seem pretty good. I will be stringing it with BDE 17g gut at around 49 pounds. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Yes, the nBlade MP is extremely comfortable and arm-friendly IMO

    My guess would be yes, due to the flexibility.

    I did a comparative review on the nblade which has yet to be posted. I found it to be extremely comfortable.

    I have one. It is so flexible that it won't hurt your arm as much as other racquets. The swingweight advertised on TW is WRONG!!!. Other sites have it correct at about 325. Given its weight and 2pt headlight balance, it is totally impossible that it has TW's swingweight.
