My main concern is that damn grip shape, but I guess I will adjust to it it wasn't so bad.

Have you had any more success with other string set ups besides got and Pauly? Have you tried a multi with a poly cross? You Definitely need to keep the tension low on this racket to get some pop out of it. Will see how it goes this weekend but I think the prestige s moved into the list of possibilities. The Donnay Pro 197 is the other front runner. I really wish there was a Wilson racket that fit the specs I am looking for but there doesn't seem to be one? Someone suggested the pro staff 95 which is okay but very thin beam And probably too low powered for me. The other Wilson possibility is the BLX six 1 95 team with some lead way to make it heavier. We'll see how that one goes too.
The only other string I've used in this racquet was full bed Sonic Pro. It was okay, but I also needed a little extra pop, and something easy on the arm. The guy/poly plays great for me in this racquet. I'm also a 4.0, and being almost 50 can use a little free power thats arm friendly. I've only played the racquet stock. I also like the Wilson grips better, but have gotten used to the Head grip

The other racquet to consider might be the new Head G Speed Pro 16x19. I'll have to check the specs again.
