    the i. prestige mp plays stiffer... but nice... and the pt57e has a flexible but crisp feel, if that makes sense to have both these sensations at the same time and a more flexible hoop whereas the i.prestige mp seems to flex more uniformly. totally diff. feel. i like the pt57e better , but the i.prestige mp is a very nice frame.

    Hey Leelord,
    Can you tell how many layers of lead it is at the spot where you took the pic? Just looks like a single layer, but it's not that clear.

    That Gulbis racquet will be worth something in the future! Like about $5.00!
