I bought the Blade 93 shortly after it was released and I thought it was pretty good. I strung it at mid tension with luxilon alu power and it had a little bit too much control for my taste. I knew what I was getting into with a mid size frame but it had too much control compared to my main racquet the babolat aero pro drive that I just play better overall with. I can hit some really nice drop shots with the Blade and the paintjob looks nice but I don't play my best with it. A lot of my shots land short, and it has this weird floating effect where the ball moves kind of slow through the air, similar to the pro staff 85. I prefer the fast, hard drop trajectory where the ball explodes through the air as with the apdc much more. As I said before, I knew what I was getting into with this racquet so I shouldn't have been surprised.
