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.
thanks J. I agree with what you said. I don't have any issues with stiff racquets anymore. I added 4 g's at 3/9 to my Juice demo and it was close to perfect. I didn't notice any stability issues either. So for now, it's time to Juice! I will demo the Blade when it comes out and I hope I don't like it!
