    Talk about set-ups, problems, pros, cons, or just anything about the prestiges. Post as many pics as possible.

    I really enjoy the control on my Microgel MP. I wish the racket had a little bit more power though. Not much, just a tad. I'm kind of afraid to switch to the pro because I have no trouble creating spin with this one.

    I also really enjoy the control I get from my three TGK237.1 Prestiges give me. These racquets are the perfect weight and balance, these are the first racquets that I did not need to add any lead tape to.

    Sometimes, I think about moving to the Prestige Pro or Prestige Mid Plus, just for the extra hitting area. But, I cant see myself ever switching frames, unless I could pick up TGK versions of either of these frames.

    Also having the pallets changed to a Wilson shaped grip was essential! I post some pics later!

    Love the prestige mids... got a couple
    1 pc600
    1 prestige green and silver
    1 prestige tour 600
    1 i.prestige
    1 lm prestige
    1 flexpoint prestige
    4 mg prestige
    Set is "O" damp with Big ace 1.22 at 53(used to be 62) and no lead. On mg i have syntec with overgrip, the rest i have leather with and without overgrips... depending on whether they are strung or not. Im pretty sure there is another head prestige club though...

    why buy 3 then? to make a profit? Smart people don't just buy 3 of the same racquet and say they just wanted to make a profit. Right now you seem confused on what racquet to use.

    I bought 3 because the guy sold all three of them to me for 120$ off the tw boards. two of them were 9.5 out of ten condition and one of them were 8.5

    I told myself i would order it and try it like a demo if i dont like it, sell it for a profit. because I was positive the would sell for more than i paid which they did sell

    The LM radical, I liked it and used it for more than a month. I broke one of them and gave two of them to my sister because she wanted it instead of her pure drives. and joining the tfight club, it was before i got them, i was excited to try it.

    Q for those familiar with the PC600 and PT 280/630:

    How do the 2 compare in terms of feel and performance?

    Cheers

    Hey kashmoney,
    can you tell me a bit about your current string setup? Pros/cons? Looking to restring a couple of MG Prestige MPs at the moment...
