    What racquet are you using now?
    I noticed in your other thread, someone suggested the Blade.
    So go and demo that.
    And why does it have to be a Wilson? You're being sponsored?

    Ive used it, but I was looking more for what people on here thought of each racket rather than some meaningless statistical break down

    He probably has a sponsorship or can get a very decent price on them, or a person that just likes FedEx so much that he has to play with a Wilson (take into mind that these people don't play very well).

    He is waiting for people to suggest the PSBLX 95 because thats the racquet that fits into that categories.

    Yeah part of my deal that I have to use them,which sucks but hey can't beat the free stuff!

    Yeah I think its going to be between the blade 98 and the 313 gram wilson one which I think is the PS 95? Has anyone played with either of them or any of the other wilsons and would like to make a comment on them

    Why don't you just demo a few of the one's with your specs. You'll have a better idea of what you like than anyone else here, especially since you've basically told us nothing about your skill level or playstyle.

    The Blade 98 doesn't fit your specs. Great stick though.

    I meant the 2pt HL balance. It has a 335 swing weight.

    Ohh never noticed that I thought it would have been similar to the kblade tour in balance :S 10 grams of lead would bring the weight up to what I like and improve the balance I guess. We're talking unstrung balance here yeah?

    The BLX Blade Tour and K Blade Tour have a 93 head size. Demo the Blade 98 though, it's great if you can handle the SW.

    The Blade and the PS 95 are way different in terms of feel, the Juice Pro is the same, can you not demo any of these? If not then you should at least give us something to go on in terms of your playing style.

    Average Serve. Slice second normally. Okay net game for singles. Pretty good dubs player and net game for that. Grind from the back usually, quick on my feet. Not particularly agressive
