I'm looking at the new pd + and the stiffness rating is kind of putting me off is there any other racquets similar but with a lower stiffness rating? I have recently hit with the last version and I love it but I'm just worried about the stiffness rating because I have had some elbow issues recently.

Give it a try; I demoed it and it didn't feel that stiff. If you put a multi in there, it could be a comfortable racket.

Have you tried it? I find the + to feel more flexible than the standard PD. Quite comfortable actually. Having said that, my understanding is that the Wilson Pro Open is meant to be Wilson's version of the PD. It is very similar, and very comfortable, although a bit too head light in stock form.
