Yeah - the PT57a seems like that's a pretty good place to start. Vidda keeps getting new sticks in, but they're all 27.5" (which I'm unsure if would work for me). I'm pretty set on picking up one or two.
Any thoughts? Also, I've read conflicting things about place of manufacture and feel. Some have said earlier models (code on throat) felt good but fell off with the move to China mfg. Some have claimed they have been made in China the whole time. Some have written that Youtek and newer PJs feel the best (and personally, I love the look of the Graphene Prestige).
In any case, all help / commentary is helpful and appreciated!
