The blx blade I demoed swung like a log. Felt like there was SOOO much weight in the head, it was a no-go early on. Of course, the rub is that Wilson quality control being what it is, you never know if what I had was the norm, but I read some other people who thought the same. I could get a Prestige Mid around so much quicker than that particular Blade.

Been so long now since I've hit with the KBlade, would be interesting to go back to it and see how I'd hit with it comparing to the new frames I've now replaced it with in my bag. Vs. the Pro Staff 95, KBlade is much stiffer/crisper, but I never found the Blade to be quite as rigid or hollow as Bab tweeners, but still, more on the stiff side rather than soft, which is where the PS 95 resides. Blade 98 has more plow and a lower trajectory, but still with a LOT of spin when you want to spin it... That's why an open-pattern Blade doesn't get me so excited, because I felt like the K98 gave me all the spin I wanted... Serves - both pummel serves. Volleys, PS 95 definitely more stable at net with a little more feel.
