Hi, appreciate if all Head experts would give some advice re how these 2 classic frames play. Elaborate, if possible, on "feel", your likes and dislikes re both these frames, and finally which one you would prefer to have in your bag if you can only choose one. Thanks!

Well the PC600 are mid size racket. Plays great, great ball response, great feel, I don't like the pallets though. I haven't played with the PT 280 or 680 but I know those are all MP's so that's a big difference already

I almost always carry both in my bag.

I've heard some people say that they are quite similar - but to me, they are quite different.

The PC 600 is simply one of the smoothest hitting frames ever produced. It's nice and soft, and somewhat muted - the way I like it.

The 280 is more stiff. It also has great ball feel. Compared to 98% of other frames, it's more smooth than crisp - but it's noticeably more crisp than the PC 600.

I find the iPrestige Mid considerably more similar to the 280 than is the PC 600.

I have a PT10 coded racquet, in essence it is a PC600.

Hitting with this racquet is exceptional. If I could have a chance to play 2-3 hrs everyday 5 times a week, I would not hesitate but play with this only.
Because, imo, as much as it is a goat racquet, it is a 90sq inched mid racquet after all and needs concentration at all times, and this can mentally tire ppl like myself who dont get too much time out in courts.
Also have a PT630, relatively much easier to play with since head size is probly a true 96-97 sq in., and with more power.
PC600 has exceptional control, period. The player who can master using a PC600 can imo become an open player.

Of the 2 I prefer the PT 280 , as I like a less muted feel, and the balance /weight
over the pc600, which feels great for about a set, then starts to feel heavy.
