In stock form its a bit too light in the head and a bit unstable imo, I prefer the playing characteristics of the PD in stock. But with some lead on the hoop I prefer the more solid, dampened, and vibe free feel of the Juice over the PD series.
The PD with 8" of lead tape added to each side of the hoop, extending upwards to the top of the hoop is plenty solid and plows through the ball with ease. It does feel a little hollow in stock form but I don't seem to play any racquet in stock form any more.
