I am also trying the Blade 16x19 now and can see a lot of similarities with the Pro One. Both have nice feel and both have lots of weight in the hoop.
Both have around a 330 swingweight. Both have pretty good power and both are in that middle ground of players/tweeners racquets, also they both lean more towards "player" than "tweener".
How else would you compare them besides stability? For the record, I thought they were both among the most solid under 12 oz. sticks around, but the P1 is about 1/2 oz. heavier in static weight and that may give it a slight advantage in stability.
