Question New Blade 98 underpowered vs. KBlade?

I just received the 18x20 and 16x19 Blade demos and was shocked at how underpowered they feel compared to my KBlade. The KBlade is strung with 18g aramid at 50 on the mains and TF Biphase X-1 at 55 on the crosses. You have to swing it, but it's not dead. I tried hitting with the 2 blades and they simply didn't have the plow through that the KBlade has, and I literally had trouble keeping the ball over the net.

Anybody else notice this?

I measured the tension on the Blades and it's not unusual and they are strung with Wilson Sensation...

Guess I'll have to pick up a couple more KB instead of moving on...
