With all the hype this racquet is getting I was wondering if any of you are planning on switching to it...

I have played with every prestige made but I do not think I will try the LM prestige, they seem to be more cheaply made each time they bring out a new one. I might try it if someone who has played with a lot of the different prestiges would give me a review and tell me which older prestige it most plays like.

I'll probably demo it when it comes out on April 1st and make my decision there, much like I did with the iPrestige MP.

I was able to demo the LM Prestige last Sunday and I liked it. I currently own a Prince NXG Mid. When I went to the demo the LM Prestige was the Head racquet I really wanted to try, because of the same string pattern as the NXG Mid. As I stated before I liked the racquet. It had a lot of feel and Hit well. I am also glad to say I like the NXG Mid better. It just seems to have more feel.

Who's jumping on it?
I imagine Marat Safin on a bad day.

I've been extremely satisfied with the i Prestige mid. For me, changing frames every time a new version arrives on the scene has negative results on my game. Although I will probably demo the LM Prestige, it will have to have very significant improvements. I don't see that happening. But I will keep an "open mind".

I demoed both the LM Prestige Mid and Midplus a few days ago and was very impressed with both head sizes. I am a former Dunlop MW 200G-95 and current Volkl Tour 10-Mid user. I will demo them again when it gets closer to their release date(April 1) as I really was not sure after about two hours of hitting which head size I liked better. I am pretty sure I will be switching to either the LM Prestige Mid or Midplus as my regular stick.

Head Prestige Mid nice and favorable surprise, they really went back to the old feel of the original one in a tad lighter package, solid all around anyway, nice for serve, volleys and also groundstrokes due a more powerful response.

Nice feedback and a precise weapon I must say, you look at your target and shoot, the result a very heavy and fast ball.

This is a very demanding frame, early preparation a must, I will say that a 4.5 and up player in good shape will be able to get of this frame its best
