    Hi, I am from Argentina and here we cannot demo racquets, you just buy them and pray you like them. Im looking for a new racquet because I played the last 3 years with the HPS 5.0 and its as stiff as a baseball bat. This weekend I tried the Prestige 660 tour of a friend and despite the metal noise it makes each time you hit the ball, I loved this racquet. I would like to know if the new LM prestige is similar to the 660 tour I tried and if it makes that metal noise. I am a 4.0+ player 80% baseline.

    Thanks
    Bye.

    The metal noise could be attributed to the strings maybe? My Head Prestige MPs do not make that noise you're talking about. As far as how it compares to the LM Prestige MP, I haven't tried it, but the iPrestige has a tighter string pattern and IMO is a bit tougher to produce spin with. (102 vs 98 sq inch head). Hope this helps.

    Hola, yo he jugado con las dos pues el fin de semana ensayé la LM y en mi opinión no tienen nada que ver. No me gustó la LM.

    the head size of the prestige you hit with is 660, the LM prestige is 600 and 630, just wait for the LM prestige mid plus 630,
