Donnay Pro One pentacore (16x19)

Been using for some time now the P1 GT (16x19) and I am very fond of the feeling I am getting.

Has anyone tried the new pentacore so as to comment on potential differences?

How does it compare to tri-core and quad-core GT's?
I always liked how whippy and maneuverable they are but for my taste they lack the put away power.

Penta 97 16M are very powerful when properly customized. Sweet spot seems to be smaller than on 18M but when you hit the center the ball may explode. However it is not the advertised 305 g, because with 10 g lead at 9 and 3 and overgrip it is only 308 g unstrung. Probably some quasi-pro stock frame as it came brand new from a former national champion. It was powerful even when strung proportionally with Lux APS @ 25.5/25 kg ref. tension.
