I decided for now to play it stock and just see what happens. It will be a slight pain to switch back to the blade, but ill live.
My brief fling with the 99 dry swinging it and holding it was very very positive. It feels much more substantial than the APDC in hand. I am pretty sure the only difference in the S is the drill pattern. I have a really good feeling that the Babs may lose a bunch of sales this year to the Steam. It most likely is going to give more spin and all signs point to it having that wilson feel that makes the Blades feel so much sweeter than they should be at that weight.
