I'd love to get back to full poly at one point because I like what I can do to the ball with it, but it ends up costing me more than rip control since i change it out every week.
It's not a debate for me, but a lot of people will read this thread and then start complaining their arm hurts from the racquet because they used full poly.
I'd recommend starting out with a softer song for anyone who is new to this racquet.
I know you're right and I agree, your recommendations for this racquet is the smart way to go. I've been lucky I'm sure, but that's an advantage to being a racquetholic, you never own the same racquet or strings for more then 8 hours of use!
