    How many of you out there use the Roddick PD Plus and wield a 1HBH with success. Incorporating variety with good driving top, biting slices etc...?

    You need to use the racquet a lot (practice, get use to the swingweight), if you are not use to an extended length frame. you can have success with it, just look at ivan lubjic (sp?), he uses a 27.5" racquet and his one hand backhand is one of the best on tour.

    I have played some with the pdr+ and I found it very nice on slices. I had good success with tops spins too but only when I was feeling good and playing well. It was all or nothing with this frame for me, no middle ground.
    Except on the serve of course.

    I own a PD+ and have a 1HBH. I used to play with mids because of my BH but the PDR+ was an easy transition. I find the mix of power and control to be just right. As for the weight or swingweight, I guess I am used to wielding heavy player's rackets which made the transition seamless. The PDR+ in my opinion is a great racket.
