There is and it is substantial. Search.

Been seeing a lot of pt57a. Don't know why the "e" is ignored. That racquet I think has a much better controlled firmer feel.

It's stiffer. The Donnay platinum is supposed to mirror it quite well. I think the 57a flexes at around 59 and the E is around 65.

i'd actually perfer the "e" then thanks, is it worth the search and money though rather than buying a retail prestige pro.. im a high school varsity player NTRP 5.0

Well they are super expensive and you'd need more than 1 if it is going to be your stick...so I don't know. You should try and demo the Donnay platinum if you can because it is under $200, easy to buy multiples and plays similar.

If you don't care too much about pro molds I'd just go retail. They are great too..the Prestige Pro is just a 16x19 and the platinum is 18x20. Same price though.
