The 200g plays very flex, and very sweet on most shots, including some off-center shots. Hmm... Is that so to you too?
The swingweight of about 355 is the primary reason the sweet zone feels so big. PS 85 is about 330. If you've ever slapped 8 grams of lead onto a stick at 12 o'clock you know what increasing swingweight by 25 units does to the sweetspot and feel.

The low - about 45 flex - is also a factor in how the frame feels compared to stiffer (PS: 65 flex) sticks.
