I know it's hard to do this objectively, but I tried to get the same swingdynamic/swingfeel with both rackets. Both rackets gave me virtually the same control and the same connected feel.

Here are the specs:
Völkl Quantum Energy II, 320 g, 32.15 cm balance, 302 sw
Babolat APDGT, 359 g, 32.65 cm balance, 342 sw
Thanks for the data, here are the curves:


Dividing one with the other shows that you have succeeded well with getting both follow the same curve. The Babolat is about 13% heavier for all swings.
