    I was checking out RacquetTECH.com and I saw a listing for I.prestige (early) and I.prestige(late). Anyone know what this means? What are the differences between the early and the late versions? Is there a way to tell which version you have?

    Aha!!! Then I must have an older version. :lol: Kinda sounds like it's gonna be hard to match if I want more.

    isnt also that the early version have 'made in austria' printed on the side of the rqt and the later version just has a sticker on the butt cap?

    I have/had 4, I sold the only 1 which had 'made in austria' printed. Now I have 3 all of which have the sticker on it.

    Also the LM Pres have stickers

    uk_skippy you were right. My friend has an I.Prestige MP XL and it has the sticker, but no printing on the frame. So his is late and mine is early, I am guessing.

    Thnaks for the info everyone.
