First of all ,
I would like to thank to all those that helped me to choose
my new frame.

Becasue I'm from Israel I can't really demo sticks at all , and it was
hard to me to decide between the PC and the Diablo Mid only by
reviews and yours posts.

And to my mini review:

I strung it with Gosen basic synth. @57lbs .
I played about 2 hours before this post.
(By the way, Is GOSEN a good choise??)

Groundstrokes - Awesome control and good solid feel with decent power from the racquet when I put all my weight behind my shots.
Great frame for topspins but I found the PC hard to slice with it.

Volleys - Not bad, not bad at all. I found good accuracy on my volleys and even that I was not used to the stick's weight I was able to smash overheads and touch was nice too.

Serves - I felt a bit of the Woofer but I think that I had to use a lot of arm to serve hard (mybe it is the tension) . I can absolutly say that the control was good but I still need an adjustment time from serving with my regular racquet. By the way, I found the PD to be a better serving frame.

Overall - It's a bit heavy for me and I still need time to adjust it
but with it's control and mybe with lower tension it will turn out to be a real Big Banger for baseliners like me. my topspins are great, I never controled well the ball before and I was consistent on my groundies.
