    I think they are a different mold. BTW is the H22 95" or 98"?

    The H22 is 98 sq. in.

    I woudl think they are the same mold -- i.e. that the H22 was available in both PJs as I know that the KBlade 98 versions were made for Ana Ivanovic before she switched. Therefore, I assume (may be a wrong asumption) that her nBlade 98 was the same mold.

    I imagine some of it would depend on who it was made for if they are using another or older wilson frame it could just be painted to look like a blade?

    Of course that is right. I just meant that if there is at least small chance if I would buy nBlade from any pro, it could be H22.

    I imagine if you knew the pro who's frames you were huinting you could probably find a lot of info on here or other sites, or if you can get to them, you could ask!

    What I meant was whether it's 98 sq. in. as in Pro Tour 630 (measured from the outside) or 98 sq. in. measured from the inside? Because I got an H19 that's more like 90 sq. in. than 93.

    What is the pro mold for the Six.One 95 racquets? Do they use the H22 mold for both the KBlade and Six.One 95 racquets?

    Nope, they are different molds. For the 95 Wilsons they are using the same mold as the retail model with different layup I believe (and they have the word "Classic" in the throat)

    The ones with classic on them are paintjobs of the 6.1 that are still made for players who used them.

    I compared the two and it seemed that the H22 head is slightly larger, so I would say it is a true 98

    Intresting. I tried the cord method but it didn't work so what I did was get out my 102 sq. in. Head racquet, which would be like a true 98, my midplus Head and my H19. When I lay them on each other the blade is smaller by a bigger margin than the 98 than the 98 is smaller than the 102 (if this makes any sense :D )
