what you said.
i demoed the gold as well. silver is lighter and more powerful. kinda surprising power with a HUGE sweetspot. also surprisingly comfy. i had full poly bed in for a week and zap just strung em up with black magic/maxim touch hybrid and they play soft. i'm missing a lot of spin compared to tour bite though.
i find upper hoop response with the silvers are great - especially compared to my old exo3 tours which were dead in the upper hoop and why even one gram at 12 oclock made a huge difference in playability. i hit high on the stringbed so this contributes a lot to whether i find a racquet powerful or not.
i also have the customization kit and i like the stick stock but found it for dubs to be a bit too even balance. i liked it best with the 10 gram buttcap and strung up with one overgrip and the donnay vibe damp - it's 330 grams dead even.
i got two of em and you are always welcome to demo them. shoot me an email.
