I have several P1s. My goto setup is VS team (59) with 4G(54). I have another with 57/52, but it's too powerful - on indoor courts anyway. My last is full poly, which I don't care for with the P1.
I've got a 2nd Blade coming in today, and yes I will probably go even lower, as the power is very controllable. I may try VS team (50), with either 4G or Beast (46) in the crosses.
Like many of us, I've hit with a lot of racquets. There's no way the Blade will ever be as smooth as a P1, but any discomfort may go away as I get more used to hitting with the Blade.
