    Jason, out of the 3 Blades and 99S, which do you find to be the most arm-friendly? I'm curious since you seem to be careful about that and have hit with all of these frames. The 98 18x20 seems to get the best marks on the TW vibration frequency tool, but tester comments seem to indicate the 93 is the most comfortable. On the 99S, I'm wondering if the open string pattern makes it feel softer than the RA would indicate.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'll have to hit with the 93 again to get an idea of the stiffness. It's been a while. But as far as the Blade 98 vs the Steam 99S, I'd have to give a slight nod to the Blade 98. The Steam 99S does feel a bit softer than the RA indicates, but I can feel the tenderness in my arm after a hit with it. It's deceptively stiff.

    Jason, TW

    OK, thanks for the feedback! I'd like to hear back once you hit with the 93 again, or if anyone else has hit with the 93 extensively and has chronic tenderness that would be useful too.
