You know what I mean. The feel of that slender, smooth, tapered throat of certain frames in the off-hand just gives you the confidence to nail the next shot!
That's funny I normally go for flat or box beams, but I actually quite enjoyed the rounded throat of the PD. Do you hit a one or a two hander?I really noticed this when I was playtesting the new PD that has has an oval beam in comparison to boxier-beams . Felt like my off hand was almost slipping when changing grips.
When actually hitting, it wasn’t that noticeable but just holding each I initially had some concerns
Agreed — if you hit a one-handed backhand. I do, and you need that thin edge to cradle the racquet to change grips. If you hit a two-hander, your second hand should be on the grip instead of cradling the frame so not as important.You know what I mean.

Yeah I was thinking more along the Pure Aeros and Pure Drives of the world. Haven't held a Pure Strike in a whileI reckon the Pure Strike is “boxy” enough to be switching between with the Blade. Imo.
It's the other way for me. Don't like a glossy finish as much as a matte finish for grip changes. Since I'm rotating the racket with the throat hand, I want a little less slippery surface.I will add one more variable to the equation: glossy finish on the paint job. Easier to make that grip change with a glossy finish than a matte finish.
