It was my favorite hybrid in most of the racquets that I've used over the last year or so: (TF 325VO2, 400T, BC20, P1).
My criteria were:
consistent performance over string life (I hate many polys on this point)
I can adjust for spin and power.
It is neither very stiff non spongy, somewhere in the middle.
Power is also somewhere in the middle.
It's not stiff, but you know its a poly, and the feedback is good.
In several situations the Beast wore through before the gut.
However due to another thread I tried out gut/4G in my current P1 and it beats Beast in the touch department, and equals Beast. It's my new "go-to".
