03-30-2004, 07:52 AM
The TW Review of the Liquid Metal Prestige racquets is supposed to be up by next Monday. I thought that it would be interesting to hear your predictions for the TW scores on this racquet.
The Poll is for the OVERALL score for each of the racquets.
If you like, you can post your prediction for the score each individual category as I have below.
Predictions for the MIDPLUS:
Overall = 76
Groundstrokes = 80
Topspin = 71
Slice = 78
Control = 83
Power = 63
Serves/Overheads = 77
Maneuverability = 73
Comfort = 83
Volleys = 78
Touch/Feel = 80
Stability = 77

have you actually played with the racquet? or are you just randomly guessing stupid numbers?..

I have a feeling you're just guessing which strikes me as bizarre. really.
I think Benjamin will be quite close with his estimates. He's demoed so many frames and read so many TW reviews I believe he has a 'good' reading of how TW will rate the racquets.
When TW post the reviews I will for interest/amusement cross-check the figures with Bishop's.

but hes never even held the prestige. he's numbers are completely random, which i find amusing.

I have been playing with it for a week now. I think they are low. Control, power, topspin potient will be higher. Which makes the overall score 5 points higher

The midplus will get slightly higher scores. Perhaps because the midplus is more user friendly. Hard hitters who require more directional control, however, will prefer the mid-size. Very similiar to the preference in the I Prestige Series. My prediction! :shock:

Well, it looks as though nobody got the "Higher Overall Score" portion right. The mid and the midplus scored exactly the same...80! And as the numbers below suggest, I was completely off in almost every prediction.
Actual / My Prediction
Overall: 80 / 76
Volleys: 82 / 78
Topspin: 78 / 71 (ohhhh---waaaaaaay off)
Slice: 78 / 78 / 0 (wow, actually got one right) :shock:
Groundstrokes: 77 / 80
Serves and Overheads: 81 / 77
Touch and Feel: 78 / 80
Comfort: 81 / 83
Stability: 79 / 77
Maneuverability: 80 / 73 :(
Control: 80 / 83
Power: 75 / 63 (I never knew a Prestige could have this much power)
Oh well, at least I got one correct :lol:

Gutsy move to go on record Benjamin. Well done.
