That depends on your preferences. I like feedback, and I've never been in the position where I've thought "This is too much". A stiffer racket should naturally give more feedback, but there are many other factors involved too.

quixilver as you mentioned about the shock absorption I find the same problem in many other smaller manufacturers, there is something to said for good shock absorption when you are playing a lot, especially awkward miss/hits.
Kwun could you please comment on this as well, I am really interested in trying out either this or the adiprecision or the adizero.

different brands have different feel.
Yonex's have more aggressive shock absorption. the good thing is that you don't get a lot of vibration, the bad thing is that every shot will feel dull and muted.
Victor and Adidas both have more direct feel, you can better feel the impact of the shuttle, the extra feedback is good for control, but at the same time, some people may feel that it is too much. i personally like to feel the feedback.
it is up to you and your personal preference which one you prefer.
as for the variation within the Adidas line, Precision Pro has a nice balance and also seem to have more shock absorption than other Adidas that i have tried. a more damped and muted feel, closer to Yonex. you may want to give that a consideration.

I prefer the more direct feel as well. It makes you feel like you have way more control. It's probably why I like my Thruster so much compared to my Vt-80.
Would love to try the Adidas once it becomes more widely available and cheaper.

I think the price for the pro is already stable

It's just a matter of preference and I was just trying to speak out my own perspective while others may find their own differently, one man's meat might be another man's poison
Different models from the same manufacturer can be different as well, I remember Victor have their Shockless frame for their Sword lineup and Li Ning have DF Shock Absorption for their Mega Power series, etc. Probably Adidas have their own shock absorption technology for other models, one that kwun mentioned was Precision Pro.
Particularly for the Adipower Pro, I feel that the vibration is still a bit more obvious compared to the MX-JJS. It is on par with the MX80, if I remember correctly, and definitely a contrast from the Arcsaber and BS-LYD.
