Leather grip on the Pro makes it little heavier accounting for the difference perhaps.
I am leaning toward a open string pattern but willing to give 18x20 another try.
I have a couple PT630 austrians in 18x20 that I played with for a couple years.
The pro is a bit stiffer, or at least flexed in a way where it felt stiffer. I think it has more spin, more power, and is less forgiving, but it generates a heavier ball than the MP. The MP does well at the net but I prefer the pro.
