It felt like couple points stiffer, but it didnt play like the Youtek MP version. It played much better, more comfortable, more controlable.

That is my thinking. And I will try it with clear grommets. Its a shame that Head didnt finish the outside of the hoop like they did with the red one. However as 1 other poster has mentioned, the specs are not quite as expected. It only weighed the stated 320g once I put on a leather grip, but I do accept that companies work to tolerances.

I await Ten-nuts conclusion on Monday.
