    Do you think that after the N-Blade will wilson release a K-Blade?
    I would like to buy N-blade, but what about if in two months there will be a k-blade out?

    i assume that since there is a n-blade in the 2008 catalogue, you won't be seeing any k-blade too soon.

    As much i as i want them to, they probably wont unleash an Kblade. Go for an Nblade, try the oversize and nblade98. My experiences with the Nblade98 is that it could have a bigger sweetspot. I havent tried the oversize

    Don't you think the KSix-One Team Racquet is virtually identical to the Nblade?

    KSix-one team is replacement for NPS with red, yellow color.
    the Kblade is being demoed by Serena and Venus and be out on Fall 2007.

    Th Npro Surge?

    With an 18x20 stringbed and RA 59 the Ksix-one team appears to be an entirely different racquet than the Npro Surge.

    Do you happen to know the specs of the Kblade?

    Even in Las Vegas Wilson introduction the Spec of Kblade was not mentioned as it is still being demoed and is subject to change in final process. the size and spec would be close to Nblade, of course the paint job and two of K factors would be involved.

    drhopz,
    there's nothing to worry about - who said you have to buy it? i'm going to stick with my nblades for quite some while, and since with only one exception all k-frames are very stiff, it looks like this while could be lasting quite long.

    If you think about it, I don't know exactly how the supposed K-factor tech would help an nblade. The nblade is known for its flex and that just doesn't seem like what the k-factor tech offers.

    That's true. I'll be in debt the first year of UCLA, i cant afford a kblade. Yea, Nblade is known for its flexibility. I never did good with stiff racquets like the radical.

    Nothing guarantees the kblade will be better than its predecessor, Much like how many people still use the PS 85, buy whatever you like.

    hey all. I just got off the phone with a racquet shop and inquired about the nBlade and they told me that they do not carry it anymore because in one month Wilson is going to come out with the KBlade. So yes, there will be a kBlade coming out...and it will probably debut in time for the Australian Open 2008.

    i wouldnt say that.. this is an OLD thread.. and your k-blade review has been consistently bumped on the first 2 pages of the forums.

    I think plenty of people are enjoying your review..so don't sweat it. :)
