I've had my nBlade 98s for about a year and I remember at the time there was an element of excitement surrounding these rackets. After a brief demo I bought mine as the flex and reduced power suited me more than the APD I was using previously. The nBlade isn't without its problems - cracks in the throat were widely reported by players who hit hard, or have opponents who hit hard. Fortunately I don't play at that standard. The 18x20 string bed may also have put off some players. After the big fuss I heard so little about this racket I wondered if everyone had given up using it, and if so, why. Since my second stint at playing tennis started about five years ago, I've never been happier with a racket. I think it provides an excellent platform to modify / experiment with weight and its HL balance makes it very manouevrable IMO. So let's find out what happened to the nBlade fans - are you still out there? Did you fall out of love with the racket? Did you move on to the kBlade? Let's hear about it.
