    No Fedace, Safin did not use a real LM Prestige Mid. He used a PC600 with a paint job of LM. But if it makes you feel any better Julian Knowle really uses a real genuine Liquidmetal Prestige Mid.

    You all know Fedace is just posting to boost his post count, right?

    If you see his pattern, he'll post in every thread with posts that really have nothing to do with the topic...

    I don't think we would really want to use what Safin uses anyway. It is probably the lowest powered racket that Head could find in the closet. :)

    I would believe it if you had 143 posts :)

    Actually, Fedace, as much as I do not want to admit this, I would have to agree with you on these whooole PT codes inside racquets, paintjobs and all!

    You were right all the way from the start! I just happened to speak with a very highly ranking Head executive. He disclosed to me -very confidentially- that, Head executives came up with these codes inside some Head racquets, just to create a conspiracy among TW forum readers! Just to throw us off, just to create a confusion, just to have some laughs for casual Fridays..He was laughing and talking: "We were able to convince and brainwash every son of a gun in TW forums. But there is member named FedAce...he is a tough nut to crack!"

    Just something I've recently come to notice about the red color of the prestiges on the prostock racquets from kennelbach versus the made in china retail sticks (just the LM and FXP not MG. The kennelbach red is a darker shade of red and is more glossy. I have a client who uses prostock flexpoint prestige mids that don't have liquidmetal I will post some pictures of them. they hit completely different from the normal flexpoint. My guess would be is its what acasuso used when everyone thought he was played with real flexpoints.

    The LM Prestige were only made in Kennelbach/Ceske Budejovice. None were made anywhere else. Yes there were PC600 and PT630 that had actual "Flexpoints". They played nothing like a commercial FXP Prestige. Wawrinka in Midplus used one and so did Acasuso in Mid.

    All of the frames I'm refering to are the pro frames versus the retail frames. I fergot that the lm retails were still made in austria. But I still noticed a different in color shade between the pro stock and retail.

    Curious... On the 4th photo (the butt cap)

    How come it has a circle dot thing next to the Head logo?

    Because that is a indentation where there is a hole in the butt-cap.

    Thanks, you don't see that in retail rackets right? Only pro stocks or modified racket?

    you don't see that buttcap in the retail, either (although, Head used to have similar type buttcap).
    The hole is there to fill the racket handle with the silicone since there is no trap door...

    I remember years ago at a tennis shop in Arcadia they had a Andre Agassi racquet which had a Head Flexpoint Radical with the flexpoints ridiculously painted on. Up close it was pretty apparent it was a Prince Graphite oversize. Agassi was still using a old generation racquet a decade later.

    ^^^^ Thanks for the pictures.

    Marat didn't need the holes to make them easier to break... :)

    He certainly didn't! Guessing this is a unique frame that hasn't needed to be stuck back together. Couldn't believe it was still in one piece!
