Henry,

MMPBSA actually uses the radii values in the prmtop files when
INP=1/radiopt=0. These are mbondi or mbondi2 radii. They are similar
to parse radii, but not the same, particularly those for the hydrogen
atoms. PBSA will support the pqr format in the next year's release.
When the new version is ready, you can use whatever radii in your pqr
files.
