Anyone hit with both and can compare the two?
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.
One would think they are similar except for string pattern but they are not. As another poster said, the pro is stiffer and more power. Surprisingly, the MP is just as spinny as the pro. The pro didn't have exceptional spin. It's a nice racquet but the sweetspot is smaller than one would think and spin is only average. You won't find much more spin if you're comparing the Pro to your PT 630's. If you want something similar to your PT 630's but with more spin, try to the Dunlop Bio 300 tours.
