APD/O has such easy blasting power that from the backcourt I'm more in my element, but having played around with the stunning quality Pro No 1, it felt... it felt like it bloody rattled and was toy-like and flimsy and bla bla bla...

And so to the mystery frame...

Pulled out my old PC+ Swirly and proceeded to enjoy it more and probably play better arguably than with the previous two... I most of all appreciated the stability, better accuracy and control (than the APD), and general b-line brilliance... but with its substantial heft, I know from past experience that it's probably too much to be a realistic primary frame.

My muddled thoughts right this moment are to actually look again at those Swirly PDs+ I have... I'd drop some weight from the PC+, as well as gain some serve wallop... okay, the build quality and other aspects I so appreciate in the Pro No 1 may be lacking by comparison, but, I've long suspected XL may be the way I should go. And as well as serve prowess, I think there's a bit more 'body' to these plus-size Babs...

I don't know. I need a cup of tea...
Ive mentioned it before but a leaded up Pure Storm may do the trick. When I had the PST and PC there was not a lot in it, I though Bab had done a cracking job of the GT's, the original was a bit flexy, although serving was super with them. I think you can make the Storm a proper beast as it comes in at 312 strung, you would have 30 or so grams to play with, creating the PC you want without the unweildy heft......
