    Having mixed feelings after the switch ( still have my i.pr ) - need help from bab users re: optimal stringing, preventing arm/shoulder/wrist problems ( none so far ).
    Babolat: more spin, better dpth with higher trajectory, kindly better serves :)
    And arguably more stamina for the longer matches.
    Prestige: better game only when having one of those best days - top shape. No pain whatsoever ( regardless string type )

    It sounds like your have better game with the PD and if thats the case I would stick with it. With the open string pattern its probably easy to pop strings on that thing so how about trying a hybrid string job? Polys in the mains and something softer in the crosses. I'm no expert at string jobs so I cant recommend anything in particular.

    I would try a straight set of gut. String it at a lower tension and see how that is. But if the ball is flying on you then go hybrid w/ poly. Gut would be good because its the most arm freindly string thats out there and the PD isnt exacly the most arm freindly racquet.
