Ross, I'm not 007, but I can answer your first question. The red/black pro 1 is NOT the same with the frame that 007 is talking about. The red/silver earlier version of the pro 1 is the same with the VT98 Pro. (Edit ...here's the red/silver one we're talking about http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=XK2nPvtmVJw ...this is the older version of Pro 1) The red black one is the "newer" version (which appeared just before the MSpeed series) and it's different, it feels slightly stiffer, smallish sweet spot and lower swing weight (in stock form). Still a pretty good frame, but definitely NOT the same. I prefer the MSpeed series to the red/black or red/black/white versions.
