I haven't test-played the new Blade racquets, but I did so the 'older' ones. Very nice racquets, although I wouldn't consider them 'intermediate' racquets, but 'players' racquets.
Have you considered a Head Instinct? http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/desc...AD-HGINST.html
Probably on the same lines with the K Blade, but (I think) a bit
In any case, IMHO, the best way to go is to talk with your tennis instructor about what you're expecting from your new racquet, and try on the court as many candidate models as you can (and not buying a model you couldn't try), as there's no substitute for experience, even if that's only about 10 minutes in the court. That's a helluva lot better than wielding a racquet at the store and reading thru tens of reviews and subjetive descriptions.
