    Hi there.. was just wondering if TW will be conducting a racket review on the kBlade, and whether not it will be available anytime soon. Thank you.

    We are currently in the middle of our playtest. Hopefully, all this rain will let up and we can get it finished in the next couple weeks.

    Great match by Djoker. Well deserved first Slam.

    Tsonga - keep your head up, you played great, and you're great for the sport. You can hold the trophy one day too. Don't go the way of Gonzalez and Bahgdatis.

    Off to bed. Goodnight everyone.

    (I'm depressed that the first major is over).

    TW Admin,

    Curious, are there any updates as to when you guys will finish your play-test/review on the Wilson kBlade 93/98?

    If there was clear skies and dry ground for the past 3 weeks and assuming that they played each day of the week, then they should be about done by now...

    Otherwise, I would infer that it was either rainy for the past couple of weeks, or they did not play every day...

    Just finishing up the playtest. Once we shoot the video review, it should post on the site. Looking like it should post the week after next.

    Thank you, Spencer. Did you still prefer the kBlade Mid over the Midplus?

    I do. The feel, stability and control are very pleasing. I wouldn't normally find myself getting results out of a midsize, but I do find this one to be pretty forgiving.

    Hey tennis warehouse,

    I'm looking at purchasing this racket asap but am hoping to see your review/input before my purchase?

    Do you know how much longer exactly before the review will be up for the kblade tour?

    Thanks, Josh :)

    We've still been having some rain here which is slowing things down. We should have this review posted by Friday of next week - weather permitting.

    Depending on how long it takes, it could needlessly cost more money than is needed if they just wait. There are also lighting issues I would imagine. I would Just easier and cheaper to wait I would think.

    Sorry guys,

    As hard as we are trying to put the finishing touches on the KBlade review, it will not post today. Last minute preparations concerning our presence at the Pacific Life Open have delayed the review. Unfortunately the review will not post until next week.

    Apologies for any inconvenience.

    Spencer, TW.

    folks, lets remember, the good people at TW don't have to provide in depth playtest reviews, nor do they have to do the wonderful video reviews. They will post them as soon as they can, I'm sure, in the meantime, lets not be impatient. Thank goodness they provide such services!

    The KBlade review will not post until we return from the Pacific Life Open next week.

    Sorry for the continued delay on this review.
