I understand, and I feel the same way about the reg pd, and I have the same concern. It's weird, when you just hold the two in your hand you can tell the pdr is heavier, but not by much, and not as much as the extra .6-.8 ounces should feel. Yes, the sw is higher, but once again not as much as you would think, and when you're playing it's not near as noticeable as say the 6.1, or what I would imagine the 200 would be like. HOWEVER, I did not get to play a whole match with it, and was not under pressure much, so I didn't give it a thorough testing. It is heavier, but a smoother and an easy swing at the same time. They seem to have got the weight placement perfect in the PDR.
