I'm interested in Blade 104. What about comfort? Power? Can you compare it maybe with some of the Textreme Prince racquets?I like the new update V7, its a "feel thing", difference,
they new material "quiets", the funny vibrations and makes the racquet very comfortable to use
got to hit with it 2x so far, with the blade 98 16/19 and the blade.104 16/19,, both were easy to swing through the air with the 1HBH,, more hitting needed but, so far so good
btw, I was comparing it on court with the 2013 (V4), version blade 98,, and also the V6 blade 104 18/16 racquets i had on hand
like I mentioned, it was the lack of vibration/speed/comfort that were standout to me
exclusive, blade users would be able to give a better feel input on this new update
I see it is 60ra. Does it feel plush or flexy? Comfort is good?@lima no, im not a prince guy, at all..
but i like the power and control from the v7blade104
it was easy to swing the 1hbh, bit of a surprice, most 100+ racquets fight me when dealing with the 1hbh topspin, but this one was nice and easy enough,, living up to its lineage,, "blade", cuts through the air nicely
not flexible like the Wilson.ultra.tour!!, but not hard like the previous v6blade104, best way I can describe right now "correct"=right on the money,,I see it is 60ra. Does it feel plush or flexy? Comfort is good?
got to hit with the blades again today, me and another guy commented on the weightI'm interested in Blade 104. What about comfort? Power? Can you compare it maybe with some of the Textreme Prince racquets?
Yes, I have the 18x20 & 16x19 demos with me.You tried the v7 Blade?
What happen to the 2015 model?Yes, I have the 18x20 & 16x19 demos with me.
My 2 cents: The v.7 Blade is 1000% better than the Counterfail Blades. The v.7 Blade is very solid for its weight. Good plow-through but underpowered, especially on serve and outside the sweet spot. Very string sensitive stick (I tried a variety of set-ups). Definitely, recommend a low tensioned thin 'softer' co-poly or hybrid. The v.7 Blade feels a lot like the n-Blade (2006)... so much that I'm even skeptical that there's actually any new tech inside (FlexFeel) and quite possibly a recycle job. The 16x19 is better than the 18x20 from the baseline and on serve. The 18x20 shines at the net and on a heavy slice. IMO, the v.7 is 4th best Blade behind the K-Blade (2008), Blx Blade (2011), and Amplifeel Blade (2012/2013).
**Note: I've own every iteration of 98 sq in of the Blade series (except the Counterfails which I've sold).
5th IMO. The reason I didn't rank it higher was that it had an inconsistent string bed, especially with the 16x19. It was very string setup sensitive. The 18x20 was better but lacked spin and had a big dead area at the top of the string bed.What happen to the 2015 model?
What was this all about?You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your ' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." So... what that make you? Good? . You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy.
Can you please clarify which of the two rackets you are referring to? (16x19 or 18x20)I haven't use the K blade, but I used the 2011 a lot and as a result did not like the amplifeel version much.
I'd rate v7 -> 2011 -> amplifeel.
v7 has really nice power for me. I'd rank it above a traditional players frame and below a power tweener. Most importantly, defense -I can still turn a defensive shot into offense with this frame, which is a staple trait of a tweener. With the v7 blade I do not lose that advantage, I just lose a little power but gain a ton of control.
No, but just can’t not let go of my 2015:s. Getting too old for them and have shoulder pain but there is nothing yet I can replace them with.Tried to make a switch from my 2013 18x20 blade leaded up to the ultra tour leaded up with little success. The ultra tour is great, but idk, it's just not the same feeling. Honestly, this will probably be the last time I attempt at a switch. Officially accepting my fate as permanent 2013 user. With lead at 3/9, it feels like i'm swinging a club with how much weight is already in the head but the power and control for me do it.
Any one else still using the 2013??
