S&W Model 69 talk

I have a 696 and it seems to me that the biggest improvement of the 69 over the 696 is that the barrel root on the 69 is entirely supported by the frame while that of the 696 is very thin. I use mine with factory Gold Dots or Silvertips and save the 7.5 gr. Unique loads for the various SA .44 Specials. A 69 would be a treat in that regard. Still, I just couldn't gin up enough enthusiasm for the 69 that I would buy it.
