    Sorry couldn't PM you, it's disabled..

    But I was wondering how you found your prestige, because I have one ordered thats almost exactly the same specs as yours except my tension is 57lbs I think, just like some details, thanks

    Sorry just saw this post. I am enjoying it more and more. At first the ground strokes and volleys were just fantastic. However, it had trouble for the first few weeks with my serve. I have been recovering from hip surgery (torn cartledge) which turned out to be most of the problem. Once I was able to return to my old foot placement on the serve and stopped being scared to really hit the ball and follow through it has come back. Played in an NTRP tourn last weekend and in the finials of the mixed doubles had a near perfect match. I only missed one shot the entire match. A reaction volley off an overhead and even that almost made it over the tape. If I could get into a grove like that for a month or two the computer will be bumping me up and mess up my USTA status. Well, I have to say I am very happy with it and only getting better. It usually takes me a month to know if a racquet is right and after this month, I think this is the one for a while. Still working with the lead some to fine tune.

    I am aslo using the LM Prestige MP, and it has really
    been a breath of fresh air coming from a PD +.
    One thing I always loved about the PD and the reason I
    used it for 3 years is that the stiffness of the racket really
    helped my best shot, a hard slice backhand. The problem
    was I never could gain complete control over my forehand.

    Well I am very happy to report that I have been able to
    maintain my backhand slice and also have gained incredible
    controll on the forehand side.

    I am even serving better with the LM.

    I have it strung at 57 lbs. with Laserfibre Supreme. I will be
    getting a second one soon and will probably experiment with
    another string.
