I haven't ever hit with a PSTGT, so I checked out the specs. It looks very similar to the specs I ended up with using the YT Prestige Pro (overgrip and a little lead in the hoop to bump the SW up to 330). If it hits similar to the Prestige Pro, and based on your description it does, that would be a nice stick. I loved the feel of the YTPP, my problem was that in sustained rallys I eventually would break down because I felt the sweet spot was a little small. Once the ball got a little out of that sweet zone, the power seemed to drop substantially. In other words, the racquet is one of the best I have ever played with, it is just too much stick for me. My skill level isn't high enough to get the full potential out of this awesome racquet. I need something with a little more power and a bigger sweet spot that gives me a little more room for error right now.
So what are your thoughts on the the YTPP compared with the PSTGT. That may go a long way in telling me what I might think of the PSTGT.
