Question for jazar/anyone
I'm looking to upgrade my racquet from a mid level Prince. I would consider myself an intermediate player with a powerful serve and forehand but wanting to develop an all court game.
I demoed a Head LM Radical MP and a KBlade 98 this week. While both racquets are upgrades from what I have, the KBlade was instantly my favorite. I immediately felt much more in control of my game and very confident in my strokes.
The only caveat for me, though, is that right now I just can't drop $200 on the KBlade. What racquet would you recommend that's more affordable and plays very similar to the KBlade?
**Edited to add:
After another two hour session with both racquets, my opinion has changed somewhat. I found that the KBlade provides more pop on my serve and my forehand is a little deeper in the court. On the other hand, I was able to find much more consistency off the ground with the Radical. For me, it seemed like I had to try and hit the ball off the court with the Radical and the ball would sail more with the KBlade. With that, what racquet would be similar in the Head lineup that would be as consistent off the ground as the Radical but with the pop on serve as the KBlade? My apologies if my post sounds somewhat contradicting; I should have played more with both before asking.
