I'm looking for a control oriented racket that also generates a good amount of spin and is also light enough for me, a 14u player, to get good racket head speed and accelerate through. For example, I find the Pro Drive to be too heavy for me to get full acceleration on the ball.
I've tried a Steam racket, a Juice 100 and Pro (which I both greatly disliked) and the Blade Lite, which was the best of the three for me, but was not perfect. I will hopefully be trying the Blade 98 soon. Any suggestions?
I switched from a Pure Drive to the BLX Blade 98 and could not be happier. I've thought the only way to make this stick even better is to offer it in a 16X19 pattern which is coming out in December!!!!
