hey guys

i'm a happy user of Liquidmetal prestige MID (i had midplus, but i decided that i ilke mid much better)

and i consider it easy to maneuver.

i'm thinking about getting a new racquet soon, because my prestige started rattling a bit everytime i hit hard. i'm thinking about getting the same racquet, but i'm wondering if FLEXPOINT prestige MID is better than this racquet
i have some questions..

1. Which one has bigger SWEETSPOT? Flexpoint prestige MID or Liquidmetal prestige MID?

2. Which is easier to maneuver? Flexpoint prestige MID or Liquidmetal prestige MID?


i think my lm prestige would be good if it had "little" more power, and i think fxp prestige has that. i'm looking to see if flexpoint version is easier to hit than the liquidmetal. (i used to struggle a lot with sweetspot of liquidmetal in the wind)


so guys

help me and compare these two.

thanks!

p.s.: i think many of the fxp prestige users in this forum uses "MP", but i didn't like liquidmetal mp, so should i consider fxp prestige mp too?

i was going to, but since i need the racquet fast in case my racquet totally breaks, i can't wait for the microgel prestige

My new LM Pretige mid will arrive tomorrow, and I cant wait to have a hit with it.. Never liked the look of the Flexpoint frames, so didnt even consider it.. The LM Prestige paintjob looks the business, and I cant wait for the new MG Prestige to be released..

I've fot both the LM and the FXP Prestige mids. I like both and can easily switch between them with no issues. The main difference to me is the stiffness of the FXP. The LM definately has more of a flexy feel. The FXP has a little more power.

I see a lot of dislike for the FXP, but to me it's just a modern evolution of the PC600. The game is different than it was back-in-the-day.

In my opinion, you can't go wrong with any Prestige mid.........

Maybe you should just choose the cheaper of the two. Yes, you can't go very wrong with any of the prestiges.

so are you guys saying that their sweetspots are the same size basically?

my personal experience was that the LM prestige was too hollow/tinny in feeling and the sweetspot felt almost nonexistent. the flexpoint prestige felt like it had a more definite sweetspot and had a crisper feeling to it. as for maneuverability, the LM prestige is slightly easier to maneuver.

okay thank you
so i'm guessing that since i can hit the sweetspots on the lm prestige easy, i can easily hit the sweetspot on the flexpoint prestige

now, from the point of view from liquidmetal mid user, would i like fxp prestige MID or fxp prestige MP?

Ive used the FXP Prestige mid and midplus before and i thought they were both good rackets. I preferred the midplus a lot more because this racket had a larger sweetspot and more power. I also had more difficulty hitting a two handed backhand with the mid compared to the midplus.
