    How do you guys customize your k blade 98? I demoed it for the first time today and found a lot of balls going out. Is this normal coming from a 16x19 to a 18x20.

    What string & tension? I've never had problems with balls going long -- I find them to be very controllable. I am also getting good spin even with the 18x20. What 16x19 were you playing before?

    I don't know that the string would be an issue, although it isn't a great string IMO. The APDC is a different animal than the KB98 -- why are you thinking of making a change? I've been playing the KB98 mostly in doubles where I get better feel and control than with APDC. It's a nice singles racquet, too, but the power & spin on the APDC is seductive. Aside from a little less stability, the T Flash 290 I've been playing with might be the best of both worlds so far.
