Pros and Cons

The MP offers tons of spin and feel but it is a heavy frame that is better at the baseline than at the net.

The Tour offers good feel, control, maneuverability, and easy spin generation but like the MP, it is a heavy frame that is low powered.

Power, Control, Spin, and Arm Friendliness

The MP is the better option in terms of power and spin, whereas the Tour offers more control and is more comfortable to play with.
