I'll be very keen to try the new 09 Babolats out, possibly the one that Ah_Shum said felt like the AT700 - I'm currently going through the process of sampling different rackets at the moment, although I haven't as yet seen the new models in the UK yet.
One of the guys in my club is sponsored by them so if he's there on Thursday evening I'll collar him and find out when they'll have samples to test.

Hey, the x-feel lite is not bad, besides I also like the hybrid grommet design.

Only thing I didn't enjoy about these rackets was stringing them. The gaps between each strings goes from wide to narrow in the middle(unlike Yonex constant width). The wide part is so hard to clamp. Overall playing experience for me is pretty good, more towards arm playing style.

But then again they are rating power versus control and I don't really see how those are opposites.
More powerful thant the ns9000 while being lighter is pretty high praise for the Essential!

Interesting names for rackets. Looks good too.

I'll be interested to know when you can get them in the UK!

Apparantly they will be here in March. Tennisnuts.com have already got the new 09 Satelite series. So i'd imagine the X-Feel to be out soon too...

Tennisnuts.com have had the 09 Babolat Satelite range for quite a while now, so it is time the X Feels' were also bought out. I might try and speak to the UK distributors and see if they can shed any light on the matter.
After all this expectation I hope the X Feel Blast 09 is better (for my playing style) than the Satelite Nitro 09! On the website they both seem to be rated in the same position on power, but as previously mentioned, the Blast is slightly longer and slightly heavier than the Nitro.
Has anyone managed to make direct comparisons between the two already?

Ok, i think i'm lucky enough to get one of these for my birthday soon.
But i'm kinda stuck on which one to choose! However, I have decided either the Power or the Essential.
As i've said before I'm using a Satelite Star just now, and i love it, but it just lacks power as it's too flexible for me.
The Power is stiffer and ever so slightly heavier, so i'd imagine it to be more powerful than the Essential, but from what Ah_Shum has said: the Essential is a more powerful version of the NS9000 (which i kinda like). Whilst the Power is only similar to the Arc7/ NS8000? I'm slightly confused... haha :S
The Essential (290mm) also appears to be slightly more head heavier than the Power (285mm - same as my Satelite Star).
Also, where would be the best place to buy from? I live in the UK, so i need them to ship here. I've found either Tenniszon.com and e78.com.hk.
As you can see, i have already done thorough research on these racquets, but i need some more info. I am generally looking for more power though.
Any info would be great!

i realised the sides of the x-feel blast are grommet-less, similar to the wilson n2/n4/n6. will the strings break? i read in the equipment forum that the wilson racquets required special stringing techniques. does this also apply to the babolats?
