    Racquets dense in middle, open on outside?

    Volkl C10 Pro MP has that pattern and has a huge following here on TT.

    There seems to be an increase in online for sale ads for the original 280/630 since the 2.0 came out for some reason.

    Gut in the mains of PT280 is awesome with poly in the crosses.

    Would string tension affect the pinging vibration after striking the ball?

    Try a rubber band, it is the dampener that won't make the the string bed too muted like the worm dampeners do.

    In my personal preference I really like a gut mains and poly crosses hybrid on these 630/280 racquets. Also I really like the thinnest poly I can find and string it close to 50#, the spin is amazing with the thin poly and feel is there too due to the lower tension.

    Head PT57A Racquet Review

    Did one 280 had regular grommets and the PT630 had the full cap grommets? If that is true than, that might be the reason for the different feel. Also some 280's were produced in Austria and some in China if I am not mistaken, that also can have an affect on the feel of the racquet.

    The Cult of PT57

    Try a rubber band as a dampener. It mutes the stringbed just a little, not as much as the "O" donut dampener.
