I hope not. I was hoping they would go back to a thinner (20mm) beam with a higher stiffness (66-6
like the K.Blade. Frankly, the specs on the KBLADE were about perfect. 11.1-11.2, 325-327 SW, 67 flex. I adjusted with lead and leather and voila, perfection.
The BLX Blade felt dead, had too high of a swingweight, and too thick of a beam to be called a 'blade'. Plus, it was ugly (although the pink was kind of fun). The KBLADE was a sharp looking stick.
