    Wow. From hammer to pure drive. Big jump.

    PD

    Comfort: Super Soft String(Nat Gut, Multi)
    Low Tension(50's)
    Synthetic grip recommended and possibly overgrip
    Possibly counter weight with lead in handle.

    Power: Soft-Semi Stiff String(Synthetic gut, co-poly)
    Low Tension
    Any Grip
    Any Overgrip
    Experiment with lead in hoop

    Control- Stiff-Super Stiff (Poly)
    Low-Mid Tension
    Any Grip
    Any Overgrip

    Of course you can hybrid string also if you want to go in between.

    I don't know what specifically would work for you, but I can tell you what I go with, even though I use the PD+ and not the PD.

    Lead: 8g on handle, 4g on head
    String: Gamma Ruff 16
    Tension: 63 lbs
    Overgrip: Tournagrip
    Playing Style: Baseline Spinner

    I don't know if you play with a lot of spin and/or bash it from the baseline, but if you do, this setup might help. . .

    You should experiment with lead until you find YOUR perfect setup....
