    Bought it online from RKEP (on ebay). Eric is a reputable seller (as indicated from past purchases and other forum members). My local shop (Tads) has only the X-Feel Essential and Lite (last time I checked). And it cost a bit more once tax is included in the price.

    I'll give a review on Friday after I get a session in with it.

    Hey I found that site if you want to check, their prices seem pretty good (Babolat on sale) http://www.tenniszon.com/2-9-products.html
    It's a shop in the Montreal area and it ships anywhere in Canada (I don't know for the US though).

    I hop this helps.

    If the new Nanoray 700 is anything to go by, it seems like thick is the new thin now.

    But seriously, looks can be deceiving though. During play the Blast is quite light and extremely maneuverable.

    If a racket is "thick", how much diff does that make?

    Here's a short mini-review.

    Played 3 games with the X-Feel Blast with VS600 @ 27lbs and RKEP G09 grip. I won 2/3 games with it. The X-Feel Blast is slightly head heavy (not as head heavy as Yonex VT80) and stiff (stiffer than Yonex VT80 but less than Victor MX80/Li-Ning N90II). It's quickness (manuverability) is about the same as VT80. It didn't seem as quick as my MX80.

    Smashes/Clears were good...about equivalent to my MX80/N90II but I can smash harder with my VT80. Accuracy was good too (same as MX80). Drops were so-so. I don't think the hybrid grommetless technology gave the racket more "feel". Drives were decent as well.

    Overall...not bad...but nothing outstanding with it as well. Good racket for the price of $100. But I'd probably spend a bit more to get a MX80 instead. I still need more time to get used to it as well. Maybe changing the strings also will help get that "feel" Babolat claims.

    My biggest complaint is that the grip S2 size is too big as I'm used to a smaller grip size (like Yonex G5, Victor G2, or Li-Ning S2). The Babolat S2 = Yonex G4.

    If Babolat can reduce the X-Feel shaft thickness to the size of their 6.5 Satellite series...I think we would have a clear winner.



    Note: This is just my opinion and in comparison to my rackets (N90II, VT80, MX80).

    anyone can compare xfeel blast to xfeel lite?

    im thinking about those two


    i think blast will suit singles play more, but does it have enough control? (the website has blast on the very power site, while the xfeel lite is on the very control site)


    does xfeel lite provide good power?

    I received my X-Feel Blast today and it looks totally different than the one @CanucksDynasty posted. I suppose the new one is what they call the GT version.
    I have grommets all around and looks like this: http://www.babolat.com/product/badmi...t/x-feel-blast

    Anyway I used it for 2.5 hours tonight and am pretty impressed. It's super stiff and lively. Not as lively as Victor frames but comparable to Adidas. The ZM62 probably contributes to this feel as well.

    Yep, the new version are somewhat different. The head is a little bigger (360cm^2 instead of 340cm^2), the colors are different and the grommets are different, as you said. Also, there are 2 kind of grommets, one kind seems softer than the other.

    On mine (XF Power) its white (hard) and grey (soft). The grey ones are at 12, 9 and 3 o'clock.

    Did yours come already strung? Mine was factory strung at around 24lbs, which higher than what you usually see (and what I usually use).
