I went for a Dunlop 4D 300, but the X Force seemed to pocket the ball much more sweetly. The feel on all groundstrokes was excellent, great spin and control, though it didn't seem to offer much pop on the serve.
The guy who leant me the racquet put some lead tape on the inside of the forks after watching me hit. Perhaps without this it would have had too much flex. I'd be interested to hear if you have tried any modifications yourself.
It's a shame, but it's not a frame that seems to get a lot of attention/reviews.
Interesting you mention the nBlade. That was a racquet I also considered buying a few years back - great for a one handed backhand, but a bit too even balanced overall.
Hope the demo went well
I liked the X Force. Seemed comfortable and felt classic. I didn't buy one, I have to demo again before I can tell if I like it.
