    The FP Rad Tour looks on paper a lot like a 16x19 PT 280. Who can compare these two racquets?

    I used a pt 280, a more classic feel, super solid, almost like a prince original graphite. The rad tour more aero dynamic, easier to hit with, lighter, more stiff. the flexpoint give the racquet a softness when hit. Good choice. the flexpoint is a newer version of the 280 with all the bell and whisles of the past continueing to the future.

    How would you compare the two for stability? Particularly on volleys, return of serve and hard hit groundies? How about "dwell" time -- the time the ball appears to linger on the racquet? I presume that the FP Tour generates spin more easily -- is that true?

    Thanks for taking the time to post.
