In my opinion, poly strings seem to be the bigger problem. If you like your APD and still want some spin, try a textured multifilament like RIP Control or Dunlop Hexy Fiber, or better yet, try RIP Control mains with Hexy Fiber crosses (one of my favorite setups).
I have to second that. Apdgt & poly -> TE. Played with many different racquets. Finally found home at Pro Kennex ki5 315 & Tonic ballfeel / CoFocus 17 at 57/53.
The thing was that I tried to find arm friendly racquet that offered the same things to my game than apdgt. It was difficult, but I finally made it after 2 years.
Demo the ki5 315 !
