Deciding which blade

I'm having trouble deciding which of two blades I consider my main (Xi Enting Apache and Xi Enting Shark). They both have H3Neo forehand, which I'm trying to use as a common ground. However, while I can tell the difference on service (shark is stiffer), it's hard to determine which is better for me. The forehand and general feel are different, but I have trouble even describing how; in the end they are both fast and the ball travels a similar distance. Do I just keep alternating blades each session until I decide? Is there any 'better' way?

Hi Mark,

If they both are similar then don’t worry about making a decision.  Just choose one.  Pick the one that feels better in your hand and then put the other one away where you are not going to be tempted by it.  Stay with the one blade and just train hard.
