Blade 98 - Pros who actually play these (all versions)
 
Yes, pro-wise, who does actually play with a real Blade 98, be it the new Black Blades, gold/black, K Blade, etc, etc?

Just curious.

TIA

Raonic and Dancevic.

Monfils switched to the new black Darth Vader version this season? I believe it is the 2013 Blade 98 (18x20)...

...unless its a PJ. I'm sure someone on here knows.

David Goffin, Filip Peliwo, not sure about Laura Robson?

It does have the new paint job though, right? At least I thought I saw him playing with something that looked like it in Doha (I believe). One of those 250's prior to Oz.

Okay... Raonic, Dancevic, David Goffin, Filip Peliwo, Laura Robson, Monfils...

Q. Is Raonic using a K Blade really?... Monfils must be a pj surely?

Anyhow, keep 'em coming!

Also, Goffin uses the retail Blade I believe.

No!... say it ain't so! :shock: :cry: :)

He switched to Tec. Plays the 305. It's more a $$$ thing probably.

But it's funny because the 305 is what made me check out the Blade. I was very impressed with that stick, but the Blade is even better.

Typo, thanks.

^ I didn't know this. That's a shame for Wilson. They obviously should have paid him more! Does he still post on TT I wonder? It was great to have someone of his high calibre chatting to the likes of us lol!

I think Monfils is still playing with the Rebel 95 thats just painted to look like a Wilson Blade. At the aussie open I could see the speedport holes.

Yes, I thought he was probably playing a pj...

So, do any of these pros play the actual Blade lol?:)

Sonja Cirstea (spelling??) uses a Blade 98, as does Allie Kiick.

There are no SpeedPort holes in Monfils Wilson H19.
