People always rave about the old head frames but does anyone think in time they will make frame better than these old classics

the micro gel prestige seems to have been well received and the youtek even better (correct me if I'm wrong) and the new IG rackets seem to have a nicer feel than the youtek

so on this basis what are peoples expectations for the IG prestige?

Lighter, stiffer without feeling stiff.

is that what you want or what you feel the IG will do to the racket?

That's what I feel IG will do to the Prestige based on the video reviews on the IG Instinct.

BTW, played two hours with the "IG Instinct" at 13 oz, 5 points headlight. It was quite comfortable on my arm.

The Youtek Prestige Pro may be better than those 2 classic frames.

Have you played with one?

Honestly, they definitely have the best feel, but for today's game, unless you grew up playing the PC600, I think the youtek version is going to be better.

I don't think so. I keep on hoping they will that will play like the PC600 and PT630. But they haven't. I have no expectation that the IG Prestige MP will be as nice as the PC600 and the PT630.

All of you Prestige Classic lovers have to try the BB London Tour.

I just switched to it, and before I did, I lent it to a 6.5 player who coaches nat ranked jrs and only uses his old Prestiges, and he felt that with a little modification, that they play closer to his Classics than anything out there, including the current Prestige.

We will have to see when I hit with it.:)

I'm pseudo healthy on a good day. How about you? When you come into the City, you can try mine; they're already modified.
