My experience with the new 16 x 19 blade 98 was the similar to the TW reviewers. Had more power, but less control. Serve was increased about 10 MPG, but that was the only improvement. The paint job was much improved, but when hitting ground strokes it reminded me of a Babolat frame. Stiffer than the old model Blade and similar to the radical. I put my new one up for sale and picked up a new BLX 98 Blade at a good price.
It was one of the rackets on the try list, the 16 x 15 Wilson will be next.
