    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    What I'm surprised more with is the stiffness. They all are stiffer than spec. Is this TWE or US?

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    Not as difficult as it is for you to understand that based on the data presented in this thread, the us open is v7 specs ( look at the throat in the Instagram pic. Hint.... It says v7.0) and the v8 is going to be different specs (much stiffer probably according to the two videos posted in this...

    Tsitsipas match used racquet with real specs and SW

    It probably is Stefanos' racket. The seller's measurements are off.

    Follow this http://drjuliansaunders.com/ask-dr-j-issue-223-dodgy-elbows-revisited/ Then visit a physio for a few thorough sessions involving the whole arm including neck area. Then strenghten the muscles around the affected area. Then pick the most comfy racket you have decided upon and...

    Ultimate racquet for a 4.5 player

    Sweet frame. Very comfy. Too open 16x20 string pattern and I couldn't flatten my strokes. The mains spacing is larger than the pure aero... Lost control too often. I had 3, sold one, selling another one and keeping one just because it fixed the tennis elbow I got from using a pure strike...

    Ultimate racquet for a 4.5 player

    Similar frames already in the market and what I don't like about them... v5 Blade: a little too stiff, too head heavy, needs (extensive) customization to reach the specs I like. (But it is a sweet frame indeed) v7 Blade: this comes really close except for the balance. This is what I play with at...

    Ultimate racquet for a 4.5 player

    310-315gr, 31cm balance, 300SW, 61-62RA, vibration frequency below 140 (132-135 optimal) unstrung specs. 97-98 sqin, 21mm straight beam, 18x20 and 16x19 (or 16x20) patterns not very open (look at the current blade for optimum string spacing). Fill it with foam. Make it flex a little more in the...

    Pro Kennex Black Ace Pro 97 2021

    Agreed. UT's feel is top 2-3 of all rackets i have tried and i've tried many..... no the ba pro is not UT in the feel dept. the tour pro 315 is not either. They are soft and plush but they don't possess UT richness. If you're looking for that UT feel go H22, H19 (albeit a little more raw), Head...

    Pro Kennex Black Ace Pro 97 2021

    1. it seems identical. I like the spacing of the mains on both frames (dense in the middle opening on the sides) this is different from Donnay 97 unibody for example where spacing in the mains is more even. I don't like the spacing on the crosses.. too open for me. top cross is too high, bottom...

    Pro Kennex Black Ace Pro 97 2021

    Ok guys I had a brief hit with both frames this morning. Conditions were not optimal (windy) and time was short (about 20min each and 20 min with the blade v7). Only groundstrokes from both sides. All frames are 340-342 gr around 32cm balance and 330-335 SW (obviously the BA Pro was modified to...
