The level of comfort and control really shocked me....i stayed away from any reviews posted just to assure i didn't go in with any preconceived notions. I have played 3 sets of singles (about 1.5 hrs) and 8 sets of doubles (4 hrs +) along with 2 hrs of drills this morning and 2 hrs this past Monday switching sticks every set or far i have measured less than a 3% tension loss - I also used a Babolat RDC machine to measure the stringbed stiffness 3x this week and found similar very low loss of stiffness.
