    Maybe...but that's why companies have various sticks and different lines - to cater to different players.

    I agree. Say what you will about Monfils, but he is one of the more entertaining players to watch.

    Gamma Big Bubba Razr will change the game. Dr. Ivo + Big Bubba = total devastation.

    Naah man It's not new blade it's h19 painted like one funny thing is its the throat that gives it up, it's easy to spot once you see both up close h19 has more of a y throat ala prestige and blade has more of a v throat

    There is no way that racquet is a blade or even wilson, you can tell by looking at the head shape.

    Interesting: Brands switched from [K] Pro Open (100sq in) to Blade 98 - did anyone notice that ?

    Monfils with Wilson and Asics looks really cool! That shirt is awesome ! :D

    But I guess la monf sweats a lot in his new apparel :mrgreen:

    Please...the soap box is yours, impress us with your knowledge of racquet molds, since our opinions are silly.

    You could always try the search function :confused: but Wilson H19 mold is a copy of Prestige MP.

    Im sorry? I cant post opinions of what we think a racquet looks like or may be? Just because you have more post doesnt give you entitlement to belittle another posters opinion.

    Ok so it looks like it could be a H19 mold.

    But still my opinion was not silly because a. its most definitely not a blade, and b. while it could be made by wilson at its base the racquet is a copied head mold.

    Blade

    Love the Blade line. My kid has a Blade 26, which weighs a hefty 9.4oz strung. Don't think there's a heavier 26-in racket these days. The ball comes off his racket flatter and heavier than from his APD 26.
