I'm freaked out about 5D pull but I can't pass and 4N seems too unilateral.

Can't pass, could be making a slam opposite a 6 count, partner won't pass often if I double but will bid 5 too often for my liking, that leaves 4N.

X. I suspect our best contract will score better than 4X, but I don't much like our chances of finding it.

those sneaky vul 4s bidders far too often have a void (like maybe hearts which would bode ill for us on offense) and then there is always the question -- what is more likely to get a 5d peep out of partner x or pass. I think x will get us in 5d (probably hot soup) far more often then pass and since I have no clear directon I will pass for now and see if perchance p can back in.

Double here is TAKEOUT and will no doubt get us to a hopeless contract in a red suit.

So no choice but to pass and hope partner can act.

if partner has 4+ s or 3+ s together with length, and he decides to remove your double, he is likely to bid 4N, which would improve prospects of reaching a playable contract.

Double here is whatever the partnership agrees. Personally I'd just play it as values, and expect P not to pull unless he expects to make.

I'm just not dealt a takeout double at the 5 level very often so I need x to be a lot of hands but not obviously pure penalty.
