Also, does the IGPP have anywhere near a heavy-ball in comparison to the PT280? The PT280 just has this beautiful tendency of unleashing absolute cannons with heavy spin when employing a full-western grip.
Hmm. My current rackets are Youtek Prestige MPs, and even though the IG Prestige Pro has a smoother feel, it still has the same type
of brittle, ceramic-like feel as the Youtek MPs. I've hit with the MG Radical MP before, though, and it felt much more muted, and not nearly as ceramic-like.
That said, I've also
hit with the newest Pure Drive Roddick, and the Prestige Pro is definitely less hard on the arm than those. Unfortunately, I can't compare to the PT280, but I have a hunch the Prestige Pros don't quite have the feel you're looking for.
