    Anybody hit with both of these? Specs in terms of weight and string pattern are pretty similar. Just curious what the impressions were.

    Thanks

    I've hit with both, prefer the PDGT in every respect. More power, more control in the sense that I felt more confident of being able to direct the ball to a location, even more comfort, as I find the PD has become remarkably more comfortable compared with the last one I used about 10 years ago. Neither of these frames is as stable as I prefer, but this is the price you pay for less weight.

    The Ozone is much better, more feel, less power, better spin IMO, thinner beam, really solid. The PD is a good stick you just cant feel yourself hitting the ball its so damped, I really struggled with the feedback from the strings, the ozone is damped too but not as much and goes thro the air real nice whereas i felt the PD was like swinking a lump of wood in comparison.

    those 2 sticks are really quite different. The PD is a power racquet with tons of pop, best used for slamming away from the baseline. The Ozone is a nice all around racquet that you can play any type of game with . Personally, I prefer the Ozone.
