    Folks, I'm a 4.0 using an APD with NRG2 in the mains and Blackcode in the crosses. Since the time I relo-ed to Australia, I can't source a reel of NRG2 locally here. Can you suggest some alternatives to NRG2 that would play very similar? Thanks in advance.

    comfortable shoe recommendation sought

I used to use the Prince T9 Roadsters, which were not only light, had a low to ground feel, but were also cushioned; but since they wore out (and I can't source them here in Aus), I now wear the Barricade. The Barricade provides excellent stability...
