IMO, the more important things, as already described, are technique and string choice.
I would also add that the string pattern perhaps has more to do with the equation than the stick itself. More open string patterns have a higher trajectory off the stringbed than dense patterns. therefore, it may be a tad easier to hit shots out of bounds with open string patterns, if one still has trouble with producing enough spin to compensate.
I disagree that there's not much difference in power levels. My old XForce DEFINITELY had less power than my PDR
