Hey, is this a Volkl X10 295 reunion thread?

I've hit the '12 BLX 6.1 95 16x18 recently and I remembered how much I like this line of racquets and I'm seriously considering buying one. It reminds me of a fully loaded version of my X10. I love the X10 but there isn't one thing I can think of that the BLX 6.1 95 doesn't do better for me. That mass and sublime balance make executing my shots easier and more effective. I need an extended demo to see if I can pull off those shot just as easily in the second and third sets of a match. I don't mind swinging the X10 hard to tap its power, but I do get fatigued later in matches even with the relatively lighter racquet. I'm wondering; how much difference is an extra 3/4 of an ounce really going to make late in a match? I'm thinking the benefits will outweigh the potential added fatigue.

Anyhow, ps, I think you'll like the demo. A lot.
