I wish I would have kept my P1, but I will next try the new Steam (both versions).
Maybe it was the string on the Blade 98. I didn't have any issues hitting with the Blade 98 but the Donnay P1, I felt a dull ache in my arm after a couple hours and that was with a multifilament string.
If you have any arm or shoulder issue, I would recommend avoiding poly strings on both racquets. The only racquet I was able to get away with using poly is the Prince EXO3 Tour which is one of softest racquets I have ever hit with that isn't a Head Pro Stock.
