I prefer the fast, hard drop trajectory where the ball explodes through the air as with the apdc much more. As I said before, I knew what I was getting into with this racquet so I shouldn't have been surprised.
Ha...good description...I had a very similar experience with the 93. Groundies were exactly as you described. One of my hitting partners said it appeared like I was hitting really hard based on my swing and effort, but all the balls were falling short and didn't have much pace.
I agree about the drop shots though, I hit the best (and only) lunging forehand first volley angled drop shot of my life playing dubs with it - heard my opponent say "what the...?" afterwards...lol
