I would like to know if anyone had some feedback on how these two racquets compare. The two racquets have similar specifications but I know that means very little in how they actually feel.

You're probably asking about the Redondo version, which I haven't hit with.

I have hit with the Diablo Mid and the old Type C 93 (the silver and black model).

The racquets aren't dissimilar. Both are low-powered, very control oriented.

To me the Diablo had a somewhat harsher feel to it and swings a bit lighter.

The ProKennex was smoother and more stable. It also felt a tad more head heavy and took a little better preparation. From what I've heard the Redondo is considerable less head heavy, so it may compare even more closely to the Diablo than the older Type C.

Overall I liked the ProKennex. It was friendlier to the arm and just seemed to give me better directional control and touch, maybe due to the more dense string pattern.

The Prince is a very good racquet as well, but for a players' racquet it felt a bit too stiff. Not as much feedback if you know what I mean.
