The reviews of the Ezone XI 98, Yonex's reputation for building quality, very near to spec frames and the specs are enough to give it a go though. I'll probably demo and hit it side by side with my P1. Now if only they dropped the price since they've got the new version I'd really be in trouble!
Yep Ezone should be better defensively because of overall better strigbed stability and quicker swing. In the pro one, without some weighting, ball would die if hit outside the low sweet spot.
