Funny thing Ross, I removed all the lead from my PPro after losing a tight one against an old college teammate. He's 6'4 and pulverizes the ball. I found myself hitting late and loosing too much RHS in tight situations.

After removing the lead, I compensated for slight loss of power by stringing lower and using a powerful multi as a cross string. Now I'm actually hitting bigger than when I had the extra weight in the hoop.

Try moving that weight to 3&9. You'll get more stability but won't take the big SW hit lead in the hoop produces.

I have a feeling the retail PPro is more powerful than the TGK, its stiffer and lighter thus allowing for a faster swing.

Anyway, playing a solid player is never a waste of time, nothing else helps you identify both your strengths and weaknesses with such clarity.
