The biggest complaint you'll here about the Blades are the swing weight, but that's what make the Blades unique. You'll get the amazing plow that you'll only get in a 12oz racquet. If you can handle the swingweight and it doesn't cause arm issue, you can't go worng with a Blade in any string pattern.
Think I agree, Roy. I'm still fairly new in with the Blade but, yep. can see it's clearly a great frame.

got a blx 18x20 blade to try out. liked hitting with PP's but not crazy about the string setup/tension as i recall. coming off GE so going full syn gut 1st. SW measured like 331 or so.
Interested to hear how you like it bc.
