    I'm just curious if anyone else has had a soreness between the thumb and the index finger from playing a lot of tennis. I use the PDRGT which is notorious for damage peoples shoulders/arm.. however i havnt had that problem. My problem is in the gripping of the racquet and sometimes when I miss hit it sends those vibrations into my hand.. after a set or 2 it starts to hurt.

    It's kind of like bowling for a long time, eventually your hand hurts to grip onto things.

    I'm a 3.5 player, 23 yrs old.

    You yourself note how stiff this frame is, and Bud had a recent thread on it: http://72.29.176.21/showthread.php?p=4365618

    So is there a chance of using any other frame and seeing if the pain doesn't occur? Or of at least putting a soft natural gut or multifilament in and seeing if that helps? If you are someone who likes to modify racquets, you could try injecting silicone in the handle, or putting on a cushioned replacement grip: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=303836 http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/LC/customize.html.

    But I think you probably know that this frame is not going to be the best for you.
