    2019 Wilson Blade

    In my humble opinion, Blade (any version) is not a racquet that will give you something for free. What you put in with your technique, good timing, fast legs, you will get out of it....18/20 patterns in general are control oriented, low powered and it requires from the player to be in shape, to...

    2019 Wilson Blade

    Thanks! I have MSV focus Hex at 23 kg. Next time I will try it at 24kg. I have tried previous 2013/2015 and this is really as all of members said the best Blade. Feel is right on, as someone mentioned, similar to Pro Tour 630 (that was my racquet in junior days) it terms of stiffness. It is...

    2019 Wilson Blade

    Well, after few tests and, in last 5 years maybe 12 different racquets owned (not including junior days) I have pulled the trigger and bought two Blades 16/19. Only 2 grams difference in static weight. (328/326) I have tried them this weekend and first impressions are great. I have played all my...

    Clash 98: underrated racquet of 2019.

    Absolutely best description for Clash. Played a match today with it, mixed feelings, it’s really nice racquet just can’t get over those uncontrollable shots that happen to often in point play. It felt great in baseline warm up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Clash 98: underrated racquet of 2019.

    C/P from my Thread about the Clash: Little update, I have managed to take Wilson Clash 98 for test. Played with it today for two hours. I have eastern forehand and two handed backhand. About strong 4,5 player with dead legs [emoji1]. In short, regarding weight and balance it was all fine...

    Yonex Dr 98 vs Wilson Blade 16x19 V7

    Yeah, for me always same story, I have had Pure Strike Project 7 16/19, than I wanted more control and bought 18/20 version....after few months I didn’t like how stiff that racquet is, than bought 3 Radical’s IG, and put the lead at 3&9 to build up swing weight. As I’m not on the court as often...

    Yonex Dr 98 vs Wilson Blade 16x19 V7

    Thanks for the info. Would you say that Blade has same stability as Yonex and also I like Yonex string bed in term that it doesn’t have any trampoline effect and no hot spot, would you say that Blade also has control similar control like Yonex? I’m playing with 18/20 racquets my whole tennis...

    Yonex Dr 98 vs Wilson Blade 16x19 V7

    First of all Merry Christmas ! I’m considering to buy Blade 16/19 but there is no option for testing, so if it’s not a trouble could you give me your opinion on how it’s plays in relation to Yonex Dr 98 in terms of power level, control and manuvarebility. Let’s say that weight of stock dr 98 is...

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    I'n need of an advice about PD Tour, I have DR98 but I'am in need of some free power and overall easier racquet to play with with little bit more forgiveness. I have offer to trade DR for PDT but I can't test it out....I do tend to flat out on my one H B....what are your thoughts about PDT...

    Lifetime Head Radical user looking for advice

    I have played with RAD's, PS 16x19 was no go, balance and control was off for me, only Blade 18x20 and Yonex DR98 are choices for switching from 18x20 old radical frames. If you want almost same feel then go with the Blade 98 but just to notice that balance of Blade, swing weight is higher than...

    Live by the Blade...Die by the Blade...

    Same here. I have bought it right away (PS 16x19) I mean it is not bad frame, just for me something was way off, I don't know, balance, hollow feel or something. (DR 98 is much better but a prefere 18x20 feel) Rad liquidmetal is really something that suits me best, but it is an old frame and it...

    Hey guys, I have played with the blade (silver one 2013) last year with leather grip (it was little bit to HH for my liking in stock form) and after few months I have sold it and bought first Pure strike Project 7 16x19, didn't like it that much, sold it and bought DR98.......After few months I...

    2017 Pure Strike

    When I had W Blade 18x20 leather grip was must and to me it did play better with it. I have bought PS and stock with strings 317g and with dumper and over grip it is 324g. When I swing it, it feels a lot easier to swing than Radical Pro Graphene. (Blade also) Testing for weekend. Sent...

    2017 Pure Strike

    +1 I will collect my PS also without testing, hoping that for the weekend I will be satisfied on the court.

    2017 Pure Strike

    Yes, the Blade was ok, but as a Radical pro after let's say 30min the HH balance of this two makes me tired. Ai98 was great with balance so if PS is similar in that division or little bit more HH I could live with that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2017 Pure Strike

    Could you compare HH of the PS ? For ex blade 18x20 HH or lighter easier to swing? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2017 Pure Strike

    Could someone compare PS with Radical Graphene Pro? I am looking to buy PS but didn't like Radical at all. Stiffness, and higher swingweight wore deal breaker for me. If the PS is few "grams" lighter or easier to maneuver it would be great... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Well if I have to choose between speed Mp and Rad pro It would be pro because it has the weight, power and similar control, only it is stiffer. I have put the lead tape on the handle but result is less power, easier swinging and head speed. Ball is not so heavy like in stock form but it is...

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Yeah, Iv had speed Mp graphene, it was hmm good but not special in any segment, also had speed pro G it was like Mp to me, ok more control and heavy feel. Yonex ai 98 was good racquet and was thinking on trying DR because ai was little on the soft side. I've got an offer for PAT but as the day...

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Also Yonex ai100 was more demanding for me to play with because of big head and head heavy feel than Yonex ai 98. So I am thinking that PAT would be the same as Yonex 100 only maybe even harder to whip around. I had to tail weight Yonex to get more spin and head speed. Sent from my iPhone...

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Well, Radpro is good I am playing good with them, downsides would be stiffness which is really noticeable, here end there I have shoulder pain, but nothing seriously. I have played with APD and didn't had any stiffness problems. Control is much better with rad pro. I have tried Yonex ai 100 but...

    Weight in the tail

    With leather from my POV it gives maybe little bit of harder feeling when striking the ball. I can say that I don't like it but maybe little bit more of preference to soft stock grip. It is raining so there will be no testing today :( one thing is for sure, Rad IG pro needs some weight in the...

    Weight in the tail

    Just curious, what is yours choice to tail weight racquet, leather or lead.... I have switched to the Radical Ig Pro and will try it this week for the first time. I found from the "shadow swinging" that I will need to tail weight it because it is to HH for my preference. I have bought two of...

    Opinion on Blade 98

    I have had Yonex ai 98, sorry, I have had almost all racquets on the market, :) I have left only favorite ones, the rest are sold. Only Blade series I have never owed or play with it, so I am very eager to try it out. Tried and played with every model of prestige, PT57A, radicals.....my first...

    Opinion on Blade 98

    I have traded my APD for Blade silver black, I will get it tomorrow so it is a done deal. As I could see on TT there is multi threads with balance issues that Blade has or players have (HH thing), so....my leather grip is ready if needed... :) I have always leaded up my radical at 3&9, so I...
