View Full Version : Head I.Prestige Mid (Early or Late)???

04-25-2004, 11:34 PM
I was checking out RacquetTECH.com and I saw a listing for I.prestige (early) and I.prestige(late). Anyone know what this means? What are the differences between the early and the late versions? Is there a way to tell which version you have?

i think its in the handle, ive had both butt caps fall off mine and one is hallow while the otehr is a full backing of plastic, i dont know if it has anythign to do wtih how it performs, to me both play the same.

maybe im wrong though, i have no clue, jsut my thoughts

Aha!!! Then I must have an older version. :lol: Kinda sounds like it's gonna be hard to match if I want more.

isnt also that the early version have 'made in austria' printed on the side of the rqt and the later version just has a sticker on the butt cap?

I have/had 4, I sold the only 1 which had 'made in austria' printed. Now I have 3 all of which have the sticker on it.

Also the LM Pres have stickers

uk_skippy you were right. My friend has an I.Prestige MP XL and it has the sticker, but no printing on the frame. So his is late and mine is early, I am guessing.

Thnaks for the info everyone.
