I agree. I've tried both and the Extreme Pro 2.0 is currently my racquet of choice. Great spin, roughly 1/2 ounce heavier than the APD and does not feel and play as stiff as its rating. That's my opinion with Sonic Pro strung at 60 lbs.
If you don't want the extra weight, the Radical Pro is a similar weight to the APD, but its SW gives it a heftier feel, IMO. Definitely a softer racquet. It is 95 in head though, don't know if that matters or not.
I think either would be an excellent alternative. Obviously, I'd suggest the Extreme, but I'm biased. I think it is "closer" to the APD.
