I didn't tried the MW200G, but , I'm using the HM200G. Even on the spec. there are big difference.

LM Prestige MP is much easier to use while don't match the playability of HM200G. I'm a Head fan before. The Dunlop is not for everyone, you have to try it yourself.

I haven't tried the MW 200g, but I did own the HM 200g. The HM 200g is similar to the LM Prestige on paper, but it doesn't play the same. I personally like the HM 200g. I think it's a pretty neat racquet in it's own kind of way. The HM 200g is the only racquet that I was indifferent to. It wasn't anything special, but it didn't suck. I would take the LM Prestige over it though. I like the extra heft and balance of the LM Prestige over the HM 200g.

Hi brian.sat ... I agree. Dunlop's racquet is not for everyone.

BTW What do you mean by LM Prestige MP don't match the playability of HM200G? Please elaborate further. I'm interested to hear your opinion.

Thanks in advance.

Hi man-walking ... the shape of the grip on Dunlop and Wilson are totally different. Thus due to the shape, Wilson will fee a little bigger compare to Dunlop.
