Put this thread here for those who are interested in the PD line but think it might be too harsh. I got to hit with the standard Roddick for a few min and it was surprisingly comfortable. Maybe it is the extra weight and in the right places that makes it more comfortable. I have tried the PDGT(not the 2012 yet) with the same strings and it was quite harsh feeling. The TW reviewers gave the 2012 Roddick better comfort ratings over the normal PD 2012 as well. It feels quite firm on contact but not at all harsh. Definately will give this one some good demo time.
