Dropped tension to 44/40 using a Tornado-Hyperion hybrid in my 4D 200 Tours - never hit the ball better! Also put some extra weight inside the handle (Blue Tack adhesive putty) to get the balance up to 10-11 points headlight. Swings easy and allows me to take full cuts at the ball and, boy, is that a satisfying feeling with this stick! First serves are BIG, second serves lots of action, for the last couple of matches only hit one or two double faults per match and lots of first serve winners. With the more headlight balance and low tension vollying is a joy, lots of control, placement and backspin (used to play pure S&V back when I lived in Oz and played on grass all summer...). This stick is for keeps, can't imagine the biomimetic to be significantly better.
