You'll notice a lot more flex and it's softer at impact. Dwell time seems to be increased because of the flex. I really, REALLY love flexible racquets. I've hit with the Speed Pro and it's pretty heavy from what I remember. I didn't like it much and it felt very harsh on impact. "Ball pocketing" really depends more on the strings you use. I get a lot of feel; enough for a scrappy baseliner who occasionally goes to the net.
