hi all,

recently switched back to babolat pd+ for the following reasons:

1. strung with blue big banger at 75lbs. (much better than fiber tour at 64lbs; more power and control)

2. changed leather grip back to original babolat grip. Thus raquet is much lighther and more comfortable on big swings.

3. lead tape at 12 (over all but two of the mains)

75lbs seems like a lot but on this raquet it doesn't seem to be. it feel realy great. (see other posts on judging a raquet)

i have to re-adjust my serve. i can get a huge first serve in about 30% of the time in tough match play. but now my second is going long. (compared to the pc std at 64lbs).

any advice on getting more spin with this powerful set up? i feel i'll eventually get it but any advice prior to practicing it out would be appreciated.

tks!
