I, on the other hand, find myself bombing shots out of the court with my "weak" prestige classic 600 strung at 56lbs. I have absolutely no reason to switch to a racquet that I can rip because 1) I don't play with huge topspin 2) I would have to use tighter string tension (further stiffening the whole setup) and 3) I can spin my left-handed serve out wide into the net separating two courts 75% of the time. Why would I choose to move anywhere from where I currently am?
Congrats, it's nice to be content with a stick isn't?
Funny this old topic should come up again, as I just played with the APDgt for the first time in a while since yesterday. I have it leaded up and blu-tack'd (in the handle) to a weight of about 13 oz. It's a beast of a stick, and frankly I was hitting some shots with pace that I don't believe I ever achieved before. But..... the stick isn't for me after all, and I'm back to the PT280. My original point still holds, however; the performance/ceiling of the stick merits greater respect than that largely afforded to it on here - it's a solid stick, and appropriately used by (admittedly, arguably) the top player in the world. If I was on the tour, I'd seriously consider making it my main stick - unless of course I was offerred more money by another company.
