Re: Wilson Kobra Tour 100/Kobra Team FX
i much prefer the kblade over the babolats; it is a more control oriented frame and a more all round frame, i.e. good everywhere. the babolats frames are stiff, baseline bashers frames, of which i am not a fan.
in comparison with the other frames out there of similar spec (same headsize and weight), the blade is my second favorite. i prefer the head microgel radical, but only because i prefer more flexible frames. i still rate the blade very highly as do many other people, as it has been one of the best selling frames of the past year.
the k blade team is a rarity for wilson in that is is a flexible frame; wilson are famed for making the stiffest frames. in comparison to the 98 it is easier to use. this is because it has a larger headsize and is lighter. because it is a very flexible frame you still get nice good and it also has lots of feel. for an intermediate player who is happy with their standard the blade team is great, providing a mixture of power, control and feel. for an intermediate looking to improve, the 98 is better as the smaller headsize and heavier weight are going to force you to improve your timing and swingspeed.
basically with the blade range, the k blade tour is for advanced players. the k blade is an easer to use version of the tour and the k blade team is an easier to use version of the k blade.
