    is it just me or is this the case. Obviously it's not the sweetspot but it seems more dead than the top half of other rackets. Otherwise I think it's a great stick.

    Try different strings with more feel; string looser.

    Yeah, it's pretty dead up there. Not that bad though, a bit of lead at 12 or 10&2 will liven up that part of the stick.

    You can try to add a bit of lead on the top? And of course, try another string.

    I play the Pres Mid, but yes it is more 'thudy' above the sweetspot than my other frames, and I use multi at 54lbs. Still my favorite stick though.
