    On a whim, I picked up a PDR+ about 3 months ago. Stiffness, power, and extended length were all things I wasn't used to, but I wanted to try it out. Well guess what... I loved it. Then I get to that 2-3 month point and have a few bad days and wonder if the honey moon is over. So I pulled out my old PSTGT, played 4 games (badly), and went right back to the PDR+ and couldn't be happier. Serves, groundstrokes, power, control, spin... it's all there.

    I don't think I've ever hit with a more addictive frame. For me, it's the crispness along with the controllable power that is most addicting. The only other one I can think of that even came close was the BLX 6.1 95.

    For reference, I'm a 4.5 player and I string it with a full set of Solinco Tour Bite 16 at 57#.

    I remember your review on PDR, and I got a good advice from you concerning PST. Interestingly, I moved from PDR, via PST, to Prestige MP, which means from powerful to less powerful.

    For me, PST is not so much different from PDR in terms of power, and it is indeed powerful for a control oriented frame. Of course, PDR is more powerful than PST, and the reason why I switched from PDR to PST is PST plays less powerful and has more control. Yet, after using PST for three months, I felt I need a less powerful racquet than PST, and playtested other racquets and liked IG prestige MP. IG Prestige MP is definitely less powerful than PST and has more control. Also, 18X20 pattern suits to my flat forehand and with this low power racquet, I can hit without worrying too much about overhitting.

    It is interesting that we just found different directions:)
