Just hit with one today, loved it on the 1hbh so much control!!
Strung I don't know how many years ago with some white multifilament
obviously it is really lose and ready to break.
Anyone in these board played with one of these, and can recomend me a good string set up?

Thanks

low tension with polyester works good for me with this racquet.

Hey thaks , but that is a different racquet!
The one I have is a midsize Prestige Pro (no Microgel) actually the very first Prestige.

You mean the liquidmetal prestige?
You can still use a low tension poly. However, it depends on your play style.

very subjective, of course go with natural gut 17 if you want.

I use Bab Excel and happy as well at 58lb.

as tandayu pointed out, it's very subjective.

my prestige pro is strung with biphase 18g at 48 lbs. i could see myself w/ a gut hybrid at a little higher tension, 52 or so.

So after tonight, I hit with my Prestige Pro and I was smacking 2h backhands...it had this satisfying 'pop' to it and I was hitting lasers into the corners. So nice...

I think what helped was that I hit with a Jack Kramer wooden racquet so my Prestige Pro felt like a swizzle stick that I can easily whip around.

Hit with prince syntetic gut original 16 at 60#.
Feels great, good control, probably need some more pop and spin, probably will try SPPP18 at 52 next time.
Anyone using full poly on this stick?

Thanks

Is it a good deal if i can get one NEW for 48$?
Could someone post some specs?

Yes, it's a great deal at 48 USD. I don't know the specs off-hand, but I believe my Prestige Pro is around 12.7oz, 7pt HL.

Is the USA Prestige Pro the same stick as the Euro Prestige Pro 600 (1st gen.)???
Can anyone post some factory specs???
Thanks
