Spec wise pretty similar. Have not had a chance to hit the Gravity Pro yet but curious if anyone has played both and could share some thoughts! Hoping to demo it soon and provide some feedback. Been using the Phantom Pro 93 18x20 for a bit now and have really enjoyed it.

Following because I have the same question and am looking forward to the comparisons of these and the new Yonex VCore Pro 18x20. Thanks!

I’ve played with both and I prefer the Gravity Pro.

The Phantom 18x20 is underpowered and too soft in my opinion. I liked the weight and the very headlight balance of the phantom—was able to get a good amount of spin but It needed some put-away power.

The gravity pro had greater plow-through and decent power. Not as maneuverable as the phantom but much more stable and solid feeling in contact.

PS I’ve also been playing with the 93p and love it :)!

I’ve not played with the phantom 100 18x20 but have played with the 93p (18x20) and Gravity Pro side by side.

The GP I demoed had a bigger swingweight, 345 vs 335 of the 93P and feels like a larger twistweight too. These attributes lend themselves to great stability and plow, however, I prefer to have a lower twistweight, and the larger the TW the less spin I can put on the ball.

Power: Gravity Pro
Control: 93P
Spin: 93P
Feel: 93P

Topspin: 93P
Slice: Gravity Pro
Volleys: equal (93P a little quicker to manoeuvre but GP more solid)

I would say that if you play a flatter game and/or enjoy lead at 3&9 then you may like the Gravity Pro more than I did. But I found myself wanting to pick up the 93P a lot more.

On paper I like the specs of the Gravity Pro as well, but I have just not wanted to put down the 93P since I got it. The 100 18x20 Prince Phantom appears to be extremely close to the gravity but with a lower flex rating.

Anyone else able to weigh in on this? I have a gravity pro coming next week so will post my thoughts after a thorough demo

All I know is anything but the phantom pro 18x20 gives me arm problems after a while. The PPP 18x20 is the best stick I have ever hit with. Dont listen to people saying no power or no pop on serves. In fact I hit my fastest serves today for sure with PPP 18x20. All it needs is a leather grip. And to string it 50lbs or lower. Plenty of spin and power. Pain free too. Head sticks have always cause pain for my arms after a while. I used to use the speed pro 360. Havent hit the gravity yet but would never switch from my PPP 18x20. I'm hitting 115 to 125mph consistently with the PPP 18x20.

I plan to demo both this weekend... I've demoed the PP10018x20 before and really like it. I've been dying to try the GP. I've been wondering lately, if I want to come back to an 18x20 frame... Been using the Prince Phantom Pro 100P

The GPro is an 18x20 but the string pattern is surprisingly open (more open than on my 16x19 Prestige Pro) so your transition from the PP100 16x18 might not be that difficult.
