In your opinion, of course. For me I would say rds001mp of ones i have tried. I couldnt rip the ball with it, as with other rackets, but it had such great direction control, and i could really paint lines with it.

The Prestige MP frames would get my nod.

Well, the first frame that comes immediately to mind would be the PT 280 - that had incredible control. Recently though, I've been playing with Fischers, and I'd definitely recommend the Pro No 1 (red and black.) For me, this also doesn't have too much control (you don't want it so underpowered that you might struggle to serve convincingly or your groundies fall short too often), ie, the control capacity is in sync with the power level.

Pro Tour 630 closely followed by Mspeed & tehn tecnifibre is way behind that (out of suggestions here)

Fischer 98 frames like the M Pro No1, Red/Black Pro No1 and Vacuum 98 all have great control..

Of the ones I have played with, the Head Prestige MPs, that said they are not really 98s imo.

For the "true" 98s, I would probably go with the K-Blade but then I haven't played many "true" 98s

Never tried a prestige, but the specs are similar to the Babolat Aero Storm Tour, which would be my choice.

Aerogel 300 if strung tightly, leaded properly allows for spin and good control: Radical is good as well as the Blade as long as you like the 18 X 20 setups. Have used all 3 but I got no feel from last 2.

Re the Bab PC... You're either joking, drunk or on heavy medication, right?!

Hah!!! Lol... maybe joking, but not drunk or medicated. I had my PC's strung, weighted and balanced to work for me. I don't use them anymore... but never had any control issues, they were a bit muted, and the power was controllable. not bad for a 98sq" racquet. :)

Yep, the Fischer 98 frames are the stand outs - and I'd include the Fischer Retro Pro Classic 98 (Sllver/Red) in that list.

Another vote for MSpeed 98 SL's. Volkl's Tour 10's are not far behind. Head Prestige MP's are 95's in my book.

i dont understand why prestige mps are considered less than 98...they look 98 to me!

This racket probably won't get much notice, but the Gamma Ipex 7.0 MP. I have no control issues with it whatsoever, as I do with a k 6-1 95.

Head frames are measured from the outside of the frame rather than the inside (like most manufacturers). Head 98s are more like 95s, 93s like 90s etc...essentially they run about 3' small. There are a couple of threads on this where people measured it and got a response from Head at some point.
