    I think the best mid would be the Dunlop Revelation Tour Pro 90. When I think about it I like the POG too since it been around for about 25 years.

    Why the hell would you only mention Volkl (ew) and yonex in your post? There are plenty of other mids that are far superior to these two - PS85, PC600, LM Prestige FXP Prestige, n90, k90, PS Tour 90, POG, Diablo Mid, just to name some of the most popular

    I like the i.Prestige mid, but I'm into the 002 Tour at the moment--not a mid.

    The best Mid is the one that suite you best. Take a look, everyone have their favorite stick and they're all different from each other. My take is, Demo them all if you can, and select one that fit you most.

    Because like you, he has an opinion (or maybe an agenda...but that's another story). And by the way, not ALL the sticks you just mentioned are "FAR" better than Volkl and Yonex (by the way those are companies not rackets). There are PLENTY of people who absolutely HATE the n90/k90 the LM prestige and/or FXP prestige...the diablo mid ...etc.
    What you state is opinion, not fact, just like his choice of only putting 2 company names in the OP.
    However "doubtful" I may be regarding the new user who already mentioned the name Volkl in some 3,4 new threads he started in just a couple days ... that doesn't stop me from stating what I think regarding your post also ;).

    P.S. By the way...there are plenty of GOOD mids, there is no such thing as BEST mid since everybody likes different things. I would mention the following sticks that I tried that are GOOD mids...to name just a few ... : Dunlop MW 200g Midsize (YES THERE IS a MID called like that...it's 90 sq inches...not 95), I.Prestige, Prestige Classic, Dunlop revelation tour 90 (the one with the ISIS system in the handle), Fischer Pro Classic 90, Puma Boris Becker series, Volkl c10 Pro Tour, and obviously the DNX 10 mid. All great but demanding all-court sticks among which I own a few, and absolutely loved hitting with each and every one of them.

    Wilson ProStaff Tour Classic 6.6... I've only ever played with the 85, so I've got no idea how the 95 feels.

    Pffft, like I'd know
    So, just because YOU say they are inferior, that makes them inferior? I think not, you are not God, stop acting like it. I personally don't care for the Pro Staff series of mids, but that doesn't mean they are any worse than my Yonexs, that just means that they are bad for me. Seriously, next time you think about posting something like that, realize that what you're saying is ********, and smash your monitor or laptop into your face.


    MY favorite mid is the RDS 001, but that doesn't mean it's the best.

    Plus, we all know that God has his own racquet anyway, right? You know, that little white one with the 4x4(?) pattern...

    max 200g, my all time fave, but just too demanding for me (heavy), plus the warpage problem. next would be a tossup between the prestige tour & rdx 500 mid. ps original mid also very nice.

    The POG is not a mid.
    You might as well mention the Pro Tour or any other Head MP racquet, which are all the same size as the POG.

    POG!!!! best feel in a tennis racket ive came across so far. also superior spin and control, Amazing pin-point control on volleys.
    I dont use it as my main bc it is simply too heavy for me to handle

    If you are asking about the all time best, it would be the ps 85. In today's market it would have to be the aerogel 100, it is just too good. Wish every racquet was an 18x20...

    Völkl Tour 10 V-Engine Mid is one of the best mids out there. I love that racquet when I was hitting with it!

    Will let you guys know if the racket that I'll receive in two weeks would deserve a mention as one of the best mids ...

    I have a very strong feeling that it will be one of the best mids out there.

    As to what racket it is, I'm keeping it a secret for now. Will create a dedicated thread for it later, after play testing and all that.
