Great rackets, all the versions are great, Austrian, chinese, Czech. No bad PT 280's IMHO. I have them all and use them interchangeably. Really like them.
How much did you steal this one for?
Different companies measure racket heads differently. The PT is about 95-ish, 97-ish whatever. It is a mid plus. Beam width is 20 mm. Flex is around 58 give or take a couple of points. Flexy enough but not a wet noodle. Stock weight was right around 12 ounces, think the stock balance was 6 points.
Head includes the frame. Wilson does not. That's usually the difference. So 98 is more like a 85 and a 93 is more like a 90.
