    Which one do you like the best? Personally I enjoyed the PS85 the most out of these. Curious to see the results though.

    So far, I love my PC 600/PT 300 most. PS 85 is a close 2nd.

    I thought the new Prestiges were made in Austria and finished in Czech? That's what it says on TW.

    POG OS. Awesome baseliner's stick, with the power of a Babolat, but the control of a Prostaff.

    But other from the list, I rate it
    #1 Prestige
    #2 RD 7
    #3 POG MP
    #4 (Wilson Prostaff should really be about #10 if there were other racquets)

    @stormholloway,
    I know the ones on Tw are not chinese but they will be next year.
    Sorry for the confusion, I was just trying to put emphasis on the older versions.
    @bcsax123,
    I forgot to put the OS in the Pog portion, sorry!
    Why don't you like the PS85? Just curious.

    Thank you all for voting

    The PS 85 has awesome control, but thats the only thing it has. There's very little power. the sweetspot is tiny, it doesnt serve very well, and the head is kind of small for volleys.
    It might seem that there's more control because of no power.

    There is no Prestige Classic that has been made in China yet. The ones that TW are selling are made in Austria finished in Czech Republic. I have a few from the latest batch.

    I have tried, in this order: PC 600, POG Mid, PS 85. And the PS 85 is probably my favourite. They are all racquets you can't go wrong with anyway!

    My vote goes too ... PK Black Ace.

    Still great to play with. Demanding as hell, but rewards you heaven.
