I went through a stretch of hitting it in really cool temperatures for 3-4 hours at a time with full poly (Klip Optic Nerve and Alu Power, if memory serves), and it started bugging my arm, so I switched, perhaps prematurely, but I never looked back. Looking back the plow and stability of the frame belied its specs, and bite on the ball was pretty special. I think, to be honest, that I had it modded wrong (4g at 3/9, with a minimal counter), but I think at the end of the day, it was just slightly "wrong" for me. And don't press me on that because I really can't express why, but a different setup could have made the difference.

Nonetheless, if you're liking the K-Blade you might want to try my current frame of choice, the V-1 Pro. They play similarly and share many characteristics, but the Volkl's swing weight is a little less and it is much more comfortable, imo.
Nice one, Pneumated. I've far too little time on the K to form a rounded opinion but that's very interesting and chimes with how I thought of it. Have also taken note of your frame rec - V1 Pro... similar to K but more comfy would appeal to me.
