Time to get the Blade 98 16x19 next month.

You guys are super fast! So the 104 has better control than the 98 16/19..

I'm kind of surprised to see the 18x20 getting significantly lower scores than the previous model, even though the specs are practically the same, but it seems like Chris' scores are somewhat taking it down, as Jason, Sean and Andy gave higher marks.

Killer paint job though -- I love it.

I want the 93 !!!!!

But anybody has try them out?? the only thing that scares me is the flex rate, at 67 is going to kill my elbow, I have te !!!

Im liking the 104 or the 98 18x20 blades they seem to be winners as well as the 93 but that's to small for my taste

My overall score was incorrect. It should be 80. It is being corrected.

chris or anyone...how does it compare to the rok?

Every time I see the fantastic scores for the 11.7 ounce plus rackets, I get tempted but when I use them, they remind me that I'm not 30 anymore(heck, I'm not even 40 anymore).

In contradiction with most of the people I don't like the PJ i think golden lines in stead of silver one would have been better. That said im considering getting 2 pink blade 98 instead of 1 B98 2013, just trying to convince my brain that having a pink racket is not that big of a deal if it costs 50% less than a golden one... Maybe when blade 2013 are 150 U$D I'll buy one.

ffrpg 11-15-2012 01:04 PM

TW,

Is the new blade 93 as "user friendly" as the kblade 93?

No, it is a big deal. Really.

What type of polyester string would you reccomend for the 98 18x20 and at what tension? I am thinking about switching to this frame but not sure what setup to try it with
