They seem like very similar rackets except for the difference in length. Can anyone comment who has hit both?

They don't seem like they would be that similar at all. Different head size, different string pattern, different lengths, different beam sizes...I think these would be hard to compare in terms of "similar" performance.

You are right. HUGE difference between 16x18 and 16x19.

What about the rest of the specs? By that same token, then 16x19 isn't that different from 16x20 which wouldn't be that different from 18x20. However everything makes a difference. They just aren't that similar racquets overall...

What exactly are you wanting to know? I've played with the 002 tour but not the rqis2, however that's because that one looks more like a pure drive style racquet, which I don't play with. I have tried the rqis1, which was pretty much exactly as the TW review stated. Very comfortable and very low power. I actually prefer the rds001 mid over the rqis1 by a large margin. Extrapolating from that I would assume the same about the 002 and rqis2.

The rqis2 seems like it would best be suited for a baseline game with the 002 would be better for all court style play, etc.
