Okay. How is the 2015 version (what's it called?) compared to v6 & v7? Is it anything to have?
I can't speak from experience, I've never tried the countervail version. If you read through the previous posts, the countervail is very muted, too much even.

the 2015 version, has amplifeel and parallel drilling, and the feeling is very plush, therefore I went with that model.

2013 version is similar than the 2015 version, has amplifeel, but NO parallel drilling. I have 1 as well, just a bit harsher than the 2015.

From what I've read, the v7 is very similar to the 2015 versions. I'll try one out eventually.

What is parallel drilling?

The 2015 BLX amplifeel is more firm and less muted than the v7 flexfeel. It is also less muted than the v6 countervail, but roughly the same firmness. If you can find a kBlade 98 I highly recommend it. Best blade imo.

Keep in mind the 16x19 and 18x20 have different weight distributions and responses even though their static weight and balance are the same. So their feel and response will be different.

So far you’re the only person advocating for the kBlade lol. Nothing wrong with that though. The consensus is the 2015 blade is the best. I haven’t tried it though.

Not a lot of people have since it’s one of the older versions. I’ve actually tried every blade except the nBlade. At least I can almost definitively say which blade is the best, imo. @dr325i which is the best blade? ;)

is the 2015 with like ruler makers at 3/9 the best version? I know it depends but I still see a lot of good players with this racket
For me the 2013 version is a bit crisper which I like and also a tad more powerful. The 2015 is a great frame but for my needs the 2013 just pips it
