    Re the blades:
    It's not necessarily that carbon blades are more bouncy/powerful than all-wood blades. They often are, but it's not always the case and there are some very powerful all-wood blades...

    I just don't agree with the suggestion that, because he's already 18, he won't be able to alter his technique and/or game strategy to improve further. He may or may not get much better...
