New blades

also curious... :) Would be awesome if they offered a tour version with more HL balance but bigger weight. In a past there was a kblade tour. 324g 310 balance...but 93 head size...could be 95 or 98. They have two good lines. Blade and Ultra. They are both similar in specs..IMO too similar while ultra is just lighter. And they called it ultra TOUR? pffffff what a joke name. blade has more characteristics of tour racquet.

The Ultra line is much stiffer and much more powerful than the Blades. It is more of a tweener, all-court line whereas the Blades are attacking racquets.

The Ultra Tour is different though. It is a platform racquet, made for customization. It is not meant to be played stock, similar to pro stock racquets. They come lighter, but then you add weight to make it the proper weight, balance, swingweight, etc, that you want to play with.

He clearly didn't understand, so sometimes Captain Obvious is needed :D
Im sorry, I thought we were having serious conversation about finest racquets and not that gimmicks within the line ^^ I didn't know there are ppl actually considering something else from ultra line besides ultra tour lol... if someone is considering Wilson ultra 100 or blade 104 then well... I would suggest to try babolat pure aero first ^^

I find neither model of the Blade 104 to be anything like a Pure Aero.
I do find there are so many PA/APD clones from all of the companies.

It ill never happen but i would love if the CV were dropped and went back to the 2015 plush type feel.

Now that my shoulder is back to normal 2 years later im thinking of ditching my 98L's and going back to the 2015 blade 98 type racquet, but wanting something modern
