    Looking for opinions on the racket, demoing one at the moment and I am interested what others think.
    Thanks!

    I thought it felt great,good stability and good control. Serve was very good,both power and control.

    Personally i wanted more headlight so i went for the 93 version,but probably this would be equal or better for me if i just changed the balance a bit.

    I've played with the K Blade, BLX and 2013 and I liked the 2013 the best- thought it was the best feeling racquet of the bunch and had a great mix of power and control. I liked all the Blade 98s even better a little tail weighted with at least a leather grip and some lead or tungsten putty. Can't go wrong with it stock or customized

    I really like this racket, coming off a speed mp 16/19 you notice a lot more control. I have never used a 18/20 so for a player who generates his own power and is looking for control it is the perfect match for me. Everything is so much more consistent, especially the serve. Great racket so far

    Yes,i also felt that the serve was really well with the 98,infact better than my 93.

    Would the 93 be 2013 version? If so what do you think of the control compared to the 98?

    Yep 2013 version.

    I think the 98 is pretty close,imho. I only played it for an hour but i remember it felt great,and i had no placement issues,but to really give a fair comparison you should probably compare side by side.
