Ross, it really does feel less stiff (to me anyway) than both the 12 PD, and also less stiff than 74. I once called Babolat about this (in France), and they explained that the contour of the Throat area, and structure of the APD, would result in a feel, which really is much less than any stated RA rating.....
I must say, I've been well impressed hitting with the APD 2013. I;ve got mine coming with a full bed of VS Team (usually I go VS Touch) at 57lbs.....
