IG Prestige Mid strung with : Solinco Tour bite 1.20mm at 51 lbs
Prokennex Redondo Mid strung with: Wilson SGX 17 Syntetic Gut.

First of all, a little ranking :

Serve : Redondo
Forehand : Prestige
Backhand : Redondo
Slice BH : Prestige
Volleys : Prestige.
Touch : Prestige
Confort : Redondo.
Top spin : Prestige.
Returns : Redondo.
Stability : Both.
Power : Redondo.


Overall : Both racquet are very good, but I think my serve is better with the
Redondo, maybe for this reason, if i have one tourney tomorrow I pick up the redondo.

Thanks for the review.

So Redondo has actually more power than the prestige mid? Surprised that the Redondo has more power than the prestige mid, contrary to what was posted in the prestige thread.

Could it be due to the synthetic gut on the redondo vs polyester on the prestige?

All the best for your tournament tomorrow :)

yes, maybe full poly is the reason for low power, I have some troubles in my
top spin backhand ( one hand) , thatīs is not the case with the redondo.
Thanks ,,,,,,!!!......

Both are good sticks in their own right.

I'd suggest, when you can spare, string them both with the string that you like at the same tension and try again. Then only you'll get the feel for that string on the racket and you can move on from there.

which one is better in your opinion?
The 100 % graphite or graphite / Kevlar?
