    Gotta give some props to Wilson for the nBlade.
    I had been having problems with shoulder soreness, but since switching to the Wilson nBlade (MP), I've had nary a problem. Thanks.

    IsoSpeed Professional 17g at 56 lbs. - very comfortable set up (although maybe just a tad muted). I think the "nFoam" helps.
    I may switch to my favorite, Pacific Gut next go around.

    Ive been wanting to try that racquet out with a full gut job. The specs. look close to a Radical but with more flex.

    Hey Arthur, it's funny you like the nBlade because I demoed it last week and really liked the way it felt as well. I am thinking about getting one for myself.

    I fear the kudos may be due to the Iso Speed 17...which has one of the lowest impact shocks of any non-gut string. My experience with the nBlade was a stringbed with lots of unrewarding nuance. --though, I will admit, mojo has me addicted to volkl, so perhaps nothing else will suffice.

    Same here! I have a wrist problem and I've been demoing nBlade and it's the very first racquet out of more than 20 racquets that I've been demoing the past 3 months that my wrist really loves! nfoam technology and the soft frame(58) really makes the difference it seems!

    i dont think its "nfoam" technology and makes it wrist friendly. personally, i think thats just a bunch of bs. the flexy frame is probably repsonsible for that.

    Yeah, I demoed the nBlade and the way this racquet feels is unmatched IMO. I liked it soo much I [putting up my "old school" racquets and moving to the nBlade. I just got two brand new ones today! :) I also tried those Redondo's you like so much. The redondo couldn't keep with the nBlade on feel for me. The redondo was quite a precise stick though.
