Bud we have the same string color..I love the feel and look of it personally. I am just interested in seeing how long it lasts. I need it to last for me a week or so. Arm friendly wise so far this racquet is pretty comfortable so far for being so stiff. I think the key is to avoid stiff polys and use softer strings. I remember the last PDR being a total boom stick. This PD plus has delivered as well in power..so far I like it in stock form. Do you guys know how much extra weight that Wilson grip adds to the frame and how much bulkier it makes the handle feel?
