Just got the new Wilson batch in today at my club and thought I'd give my opinions on these two rackets. I am a former small college player at a school that was top 25 in NAIA and now teach for a living. I am extremely fanatical about my sticks, so here ya go. K Blade Tour: First of all, I used the Pro Tour 280 for much of my High school and some of my college career and then went to the Prestige Tour the last three years of college with a brief interlude my sophomore year with a Pro Staff 95. I went to school for 5 years so my last three were with the Prestige Classic, Tour whatever. I always hated the Head grip shape but loved the rackets. The KBlade Tour has nice weight in the head and the round grip of Wilson that I like. Plough through was fine and my hand/fingers didn't get cut up like they did with the prestige when releasing my one-hand backhand. Very solid stick, more solid than the Prestige, I think, but that could be due to the different grip shape. But all in all, Had less mishits with the blade than the Prestige, and I had an old Prestige tour on the court with me to compare it to. Both wilsons were prestrung demos with Sensation which I hate. I think a hybrid in both would have made them better. But all in all, I really liked the Blade tour compared with the prestige. Neither racket had lead on it btw. Blade actually felt somewhat more substantial in the head than the Head Prestige. K Pro Tour: I have become a Babolat fan in recent years, particularly of the Pure Storm Tour/Pure control series. I also have had nice sessions with a leaded up APD Cortex and a non-leaded Pure Drive Roddick. The K Pro tour blew me away, even with ****e string in it. It feels like a slightly softer Pure Drive Roddick with a slightly smaller head which I loved on my ohbh. Lots of controllable power and spin when I needed it. Actually, almost perfect blend of power and spin for me, a baseliner who uses lots of spin and some power, i.e. Thomas Muster, my dog. Plough through was great and felt heavy enough without lead to block hevy serves/shots back with no problem. The slightly bigger head than the Kblade tour, gave me a lot more confidence. You wouldn't think 3 square inches is that much, but it made a big difference to me. Both rackets were good on serves with the blade better at flat, like the Prestige and the Kpro tour with kick serves, which I hit tons of. Volleys, which I don't particularly enjoy, were a little easier with the Kpro tour since the head was slightly larger and the weight slightly lower. Both provided enough weight to block back volleys though. Returns about the same with both. Could swing through with the kpro tour a little better due to the weight. I couldn't believe how much I liked the kpro tour. The blade tour was fine, but the kpro gave me just that little more margin for error I like. As a Babolat fan, I hate to do it, but the kpro tour gets an A+ in my book. If you hit a little flatter with less extreme, clay court type grips and strokes, give the kblade tour a try. I didn't review the lighter rackets because I have trouble with anything less than about 11.7 ounces. Hope that helps some.
