    Not really comparable.

    Babolat doesn't have a Mid, 16x19, 19mm offering. (Is there one I don't know about?)

    Since the 237.2 is a pro stock racket, they are customized to the players weight distribution specifications. All of my 237.2 are 12oz, 7pt HL, (fairly non-polorized) SW is around 335. Beam is 19mm. Mid with 16x19 string pattern.

    I have 5x 237.2. It has been my singles racket for a few years but use the Prestige IG MP for everything else.

    Closest thing (spec wise) to the 237.2 is the Dunlop AG100 but the layup (where the flex points are) is totally different.

    Head never had a consumer production Mid 16x19 either but that was not the question.

    I think the OP was asking for the insights of the forum member VSBabolat. I've hit with this frame very briefly awhile back. It had a very sweet response. Plenty of plow for me at the time like the Prestige Mid has, but there was the spin and open-patterned feel that the 18 main version lacked. I can't tell you much else because it was so long ago. Too bad they're so hard to find.

    Uh...what?

    A pro stock frame is entirely dependent upon the customization made by the end user. Asking what a TGK or PT or XYZ pro stock plays like is really not that easy to answer.

    The only certainty is stiffness and string pattern indicated by the .2 (or .1 etc).

    There is a lot of info about Head pro stocks and they are the easiest to obtain in my experience.

    Now, are you asking what it plays like with VS gut, or are you trying to compare a Babolat pro stock to a Head?

    The closest to a pro stock similar to a TGK 237.2 is the Babolat Pure storm ltd gt or whatever their engineering code is for that frame.

    Ah... Yes, it seems this question was directed at VSBabolat.

    I should add that the frame I hit with was 12.1 oz strung with 8 pts headlight balance and 327 swingweight. So, it was quite similar to a stock Prestige Mid.

    Sorry, I cant help. I never took the time to hit with one. The 16x19 Prestige Mid never interested me. I always preferred the dense string plane for greater ball control. ;-)

    There were a few reviews of the 237.2 from a couple of years ago when TW sold the limited run they had.

    I love this racket but its impossible to get the CAP grommets since there are no 16x19 Mids by Head.

    It doesn't have the pin point accuracy of the 18x20 Prestige Mid but it does have easier access to spin & a bit more free power.
