Other than the harshness, what was your impression of the frame? Good balance & weight? Power? Was the demo strung w/ poly or synthetic?
I too was hoping that the Fischer/Pacific engineering could magically transform a 68RA racquet into an arm-friendly racquet. But no luck there.
I didn't hit much with the racquet after I felt the initial jolt, but what I remember is some diffused, disconnected, muted feel that for whatever reason did not translate into arm-friendliness.
I believe the demo was strung with a synthetic gut or a multi. I normally do not order a poly demo unless I'm out of options.
