Well said Egoista. I too noticed those aspects when hitting with the Plat 94. I agree too, that when not prepared/set up correctly (I.e. not enough time to run to position and set up a return against a big hitter) I did tend to spray some shots.
About the Gold 94, isn't the Gold a lighter racquet than the Platinum? I believe their swingweight is significantly less IIRC, though I could be wrong.
