    I am a 4.5 level college tennis player and have been using the Head i.prestige since junior year of high school (I'll be a sophomore in college next year). I was just wondering if it was really beneficial to switch to the Liquidmetal Prestige from the i.prestige. I absolutely love my i.prestige's however they are becoming quite worn (except for one newer one) and I was wondering if the Liquidmetal Prestige was actually a better racquet, if anybody could give me some comparison's or advice that would be very nice.

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    First of all, you can get replacement iPrestige racquets for very cheap now. So, if you are only switching to b/c the iPrestige is discontinued, then try the For Sale forum at TW or **** to find some iPrestige racquets. My doubles partner got one for very cheap off **** brand new.

    The LM Prestige is a tad lighter, more flexible, and more comfortabel than the iPrestige. However, the iPrestige seems more powerful to me and stiffer to me. I just switched to the LM Prestige b/c of the feel and softness of the frame. Good Luck in your search.

    i recommend the Wilson Tour 90, or since that might be discontinues soon, the Ncode six-one tour 90, its a great racquet. I used to use the i prestige until my contract was up and i switched to the wilson tour 90, but now wilson will be sending me the Ncodes, which they said is almost the same exact thing. THe tour 90 has a lot more feel and plays with more life, i highly recommend it. The LM prestige is a really shabby weak frame. Doesnt feel like a solid racquet.

    advice

    Thank you for the advice, from what I have read and heard from others they have said about the same thing you guys have. Just that the LM prestige is a little lighter and more maneuvrable but doesn't have the same good feeling of the i.prestige.

    I have tried the Wilson tour 90 and I play the i.prestige mp, there is really something about the 90 sq. in. head on the tour 90 that really bothers me, it's just a bit to small for me. I really love the i.prestige and was just wondering if it would be worth it to pay the extra money to get new LM prestiges in comparison.
