    Thanks! Here are two pictures. I hope they can give you at least an idea of what it looks like. I usually measure my racquets on an RDC-machine, but there are quite a few that are on my to do-list, including this one...

    Is this silver "Prestige Mid" the same mold as the other Prestige Mids? The string pattern looks to be 18x19 with shared holes.

    All the others are the 18x20 we all know and love.

    Great pictures of some of the best player rackets ever produced !

    I personally love the models that are either marked prestige, 600, or mid especially if strung with natty gut. I must admit that Im now hooked on the hurricane/vs hybrid and when string low tenision on these classics, the feel and flex is awesome.

    Looks like that silver "Prestige Mid" is from the Graphite Edge MOLD.

    Correct, it was. And sold in Europe circa 1984-5. Not really part of the same lineage as the thinbeam mids that followed it, but a fine racquet nevertheless, and the origin of the name in the Head tennis line.

    And just before the Prestige Pro came out there was the Prestige Graphite that was out of the Graphite Pro mold.
