This is perplexing to me. I tried using a Pro1 and felt it had as much pop as my my PureDrive roddick from the baseline... felt a little less depth w/ my volleys (but close)... however I felt my serves did not have the same pace. 2nd serves were sitting up and ripped.
Now, here's where it gets interesting, I added 4g of lead at 12' o clock and my serves are pretty much on spot w/ the PDR!
Granted I don't have a radar gun, but I'm basing my assessment on what my opponents tell me and results (how many errors/short returns my serves produce). By my cheap radar gun (practice serves hitting the back fence) I find the modified Donnay to make a difference.
4grams is not a lot. What is it about 4g that makes a difference between my 2nd serve being serviceable and even forcing errors vs. sitting up to be punished?
