Just an FYI...there were two incarnations of the 'Pro Tour FT':

A red version:

and a yellow version (not to be confused with the yellow 'Pro Tour FT Extreme'):

I'm not sure if there is any difference between the two, but I used the red version ~ 10 years ago and was not that impressed.

However, I really did like the M-Comp 95, which I used for over 3 years. 20mm straight beam, very low powered, and tons of feel. The only issue is its a 95, not a 98 like the Pro No 1 & Pro Tour.

And I agree on the beam width of Pro No 1s. I'm using the Pacific X-Force Pro (effectively the Pro No 1), and it took me a while to adjust after years of using 20-21mm straight beams.
