I usually like what you like, so your opinion is valuable to me. Is the Blade more of a "players stick"? I am currently using the Extreme 2.0 Mp, but am struggling to win with it.
Ahh yes, the Juice 100. That was also a racquet I loved. The Juice 100 is definitely more maneuverable than the new Blade 16x19. The downside for me, on the Juice 100 was the stiffness. With my arm issues, I just couldn't consistently hit with it.
I would say the Juice 100 is also more powerful. I feel like spin production is about the same. I like the Juice 100 over the Blade 16x19 for serves but I like the Blade over the Juice 100 for stability. I would say that the Blade is "more of a players stick" because it's slightly less powerful and more demanding to swing.
