there is no move that I could do in the PR that I can't do in the T-1. It loops just fine. It is way more balanced. I can bounce blunt. I think it carves on a wave better than the PR also. I loved the PR until I picked up the T-1. this is just my opinion but I recommend you try both boats. i am around 150 lbs, 5.9. i have tried a T-2 and really did not like the boat as much as the T-1. i would take the PR over the T-2.
