There's something oh so right about this line of sticks. There are 4 different versions with which one can slice and dice to their hearts content. I have test driven too many sticks this winter, and I am proud to declare my love for the Blade 98 16x19. This stick just feels right from the way the grip melts into my palm, to the crisp and powerful strokes, that explode off the strings. Love it. I have played with the spin version, the 104, and the 18x20 which was my second favorite. But for me the 16x19 is the one that passes my goldilocks test, and does everything just right. The Spin version was nice, but just didn't feel right without the extra mass that the standard versions have. The 18x20 is a great stick, but I have always used open patterned racquets, so it didn't feel like home for me. I am playing my best tennis with this 16x19 stick. Oh, and I bought it with a 4 1/2" grip. I often play with 3/8, but these maybe run a hair small, and the half is butter in my hand. TT faithful feel free to give us your Blade experiences. Slice on my Freinds.
