What I find great/weird about the APD is that it has great sensory feedback, meaning that I know exactly whats happening to the ball, where its going etc... It doesn't have "great feel" in the traditional sense like a Prestige, but you can manipulate the ball how you want to.
morandi - did you feel any of the "brassy" effect that Andy from TW reported in his experience with the racquet? He claimed it was less stable/ a bit harsh toward the tip of the frame.
Currently, rehabbing a ruptured Achilles tendon. Hope to be back in action Spring 2014.
