    What is the sw of the green 28" Tour XL? I couldn't find any specs, so feel free to share what you know.
    I've read its similar to a stiffer PT280 with na extra inch, but how different would it be in terms of maneuverability if you compare a regular 28" Tour XL and an extended PT280?

    Two different animals IMHO. Probably closer to an old Radical Tour mid than to a PT280/630.

    If you do a search here I am sure you will find some allusions to that frame and how it plays.

    Specs might be hard to come by as it was not a popular racket and was only around a season, or two,
    during the extended length craze around 1996-7.

    Mine came out to 360. This is hand-calculated at home.
    It is much slower than PT280. Not sure whom this was intended for.

    My all-time favorite midplus Head racquet! Liked it even better than the PT630, iPrestige MP, Radicals, etc.

    Also, the only extended-length racquet I really liked at all.

    Nice frame. Really solid. Not too unwieldy for me. They should have made them for a few more years.
