Okay, 'excalibur' may be overstating it (we've all had these mind-blowing hits or gone through honeymoon periods which ultimately result in you looking elsewhere), but, yes, superb first experience of the BLX yesterday. From the warm up I was instantly noticing the beautiful oomph - but it's not just that sometimes vague-feeling, in and out, so-so power of some (often more tweenerish frames), this is a through the gears, sleek, guided missile, 'high tech' kind of power. In this particular regard it actually reminded me of the TGK 238.5. Just 'different level' power, responsiveness and precision. A high performance sports car like a Ferrarri. You get what I mean... Anyhow (a bit like JG here and his upturn in form with a 6.1 in hand), I had an overwhelming victory against a guy who has narrowly beat me maybe 3 times in last few months with the Exo - and the first set was 6-1 too.) This fact alone demands I take a serious look at this frame though. After months toiling in the wilderness and doubting myself with that bloody Prince, this racket instantly gave me the performance I've been looking for. Moreover, as others have stated in the past, the frame just somehow seems to make you get on your toes, get your footwork and rythym going, you stalk the tennis ball, and if you're doing all that, just unleash the mighty BLXcalibur 95 and it takes care of the shot! BTW, I also did have a little try out with my new PD+ Swirly though ... got to say this also impressed me. I think the sets I played earlier this week with my PD+ Team prepared me a bit. The Swirly versions do seem ever so slightly better in terms of solidness, feel, etc. Put it this way, if the BLX wasn't in the equation, I'd be tempted to prioritize looking at the Arod Bab... but the Wilson was on a different planet for me.
