The S shines with poly but I found it plays better with the poly string low. I'm full tour bite at 44/43 currently.
The sw is lower than the rad pro but you get so much more stick speed with the s and that makes up for it. It's very accurate and hits a nice heavy ball. The pattern is wide open and it burns strings much faster than the rad pro.
I got mine in September and other than my one week flirtation with the black drive, I've been very happy with it. I'm much more consistent with it over the rad as the sw on the rad can make it cumbersome at times.
Control is excellent and I was able to give my hitting partner a few rides on the rodeo yesterday. No lead needed IMO
At any point were you approached by a man in a poncho offering peyote?
