Demo'd a Blade 93 on the weekend. It was strung with Wilson Stamina 16 multi @ 45lbs, and had a Kimony synthetic over grip on it...I guess adding 5g or so to the handle.

It hit beautifully. Remarkably soft and supple, very whippable whilst still retaining a very solid feel and plow. Nicely balanced on serve and could bring the heat. Took a bit of adjustment on the 2HBH; having to close the face a little as the trajectory was shooting high. To a lesser extent on the FH side too. I'm wondering if that could be corrected a little by going for a 17/18 gauge (giving a touch more grip and bite) rather than the 16 that was in it? I'm also guessing that Stamina is a rather cheap and nasty string?
