coming off GE (almost healed) and going with full syn gut 1st so can relate.
IME more flexible racquets can make it more difficult to put away the ball and yes one must play more defense at times. however if you're able to get to net then you're forcing the play. the dunlop 4D 100 (flex ~60 or so) is superb at volleys but somewhat lacking in pop when hitting ground strokes probably due to the 90 sq in head.
