    Just received the Donnay, and figured to drop this note to thx TW for the test.

    Mains lenghts are 33cm, crosses 24.5cm, surface then calculate is 98.5 2i
    When I compare to the other frames I have in stock:
    -pure strike 100 has a smaller surface (I suspect it is a 98 like the others)
    -blade 101 is a bit bigger
    ... marketing ...

    Frame is 18mm at throat, 18,5 then, and 16.5 at tip.

    It came with a +5g buttcap only an not the +0 one.
    I added 6g total (1/11 and 3/9) to increase SW.
    +OG 4g

    Static mass is now: 355g, SW : 329
    Balance is quite lower than expected: 31.8cm
    Specs are identifical to my moded reference Asian BLX90.

    Demo string is still again an unbelievable thin blue poly - 1.05mm dia : a real 18
    I suppose they strung it at 24/23 kg2
    expected DT is then 35, the read one is 32 (means the stringjob if brand new?)

    Let's see this week-end how it plays / better or not than the 94 which was "magic"!

    I liked the 94 better....more maneuverable .

    But I like the pro one best of all donnay sticks.

    Platinum is a great stick though and one of my favorites in the donnay line.
