They lasted about 7 hours. The poly setup is going on strong at 10 and plays great in this stick.
Also am finding the comfort level very high.
One thing i like about this lighter stick is now and then i will go full western on high bouncers, meet the ball way out in front, and it just clubs the ball.
I definitely think the heavy ball comes from technique, high racquet speed and swingweight. That is the formula. The static weight does not seem to be as much of a factor.
Good to hear PP!
I think I'm going to stick with the Blade as well. I used the sexy new Black Prestige this morning, and as much as I absolutely LOVED the paintjob, I couldn't justify buying it. My Blades served/returned/hit better for my game. The Prestige just felt so super sluggish, no real reason why it would compared to the Blade, but I just couldn't get any pop whatsoever.
Switched back to the Blade mid practice, and my shots were back to normal. Big serves and clean returns!
