It may be that I really haven't found my true racquet yet. I think I have found that in my BLX Blade 98, but there are times when I really like the feel and weight of the BLX 6.1 95.

Today I played against a better player than me and won the first set in a tiebreak with the Blade 98. My friend (a larger guy) didn't have enough juice to play a 2nd or 3rd set (we played middle of the day and it was 105 degrees today) so he suggested we play 10 point tiebreaks instead of 2nd or 3rd sets. I didn't mind due to the heat and the fact that it was a friendly match. I had forgotten my towel and my grip was so wet I switched to the 6.1 95 for the 10 point tiebreak and ended up winning 12-10 with a forehand winner down the line. That last forehand felt good enough to make me consider switching to the 6.1 95 as my main racquet because I served pretty well with it as well.

I don't know... I'm OCD when it comes to making purchases so this whole racquet search and decision is driving me crazy.
