Is the 95 Head Size Vantage with the 16 x 19 more open that a Wilson Prostaff Tour 95?

I am currently using the Tour 95 and it seems to have a more open string pattern than most racquets with a 16 x 19. The Wilson seems to spread its pattern more to the top and bottom of the frame.
I am considering purchasing the Vantage in a 95 and the 16x19.

Thanks for the help

Have a look at that and compare that is a 90 with 16x18 the 95 with 16x19 is slightly more open then that.

Don't ever assume the openess of the string pattern without looking at it because the strings may not be spaced evenly. The Vantage 95 16x19 strings are spaced more evenly and thus leaving huge squares (appx. 1/2") in the middle (Yike!). The pattern is wide open, and the strings move like crazy. My 16x19 oversize (110) has denser pattern in the middle of the head because the strings are spaced closer in the middle. If I own the Vantage 95, I would have prefer the 18x20 pattern.
