    the mid demo was like dating a supermodel, sure the $ex was great (when it happened) and she is great eye-candy, had curves in all the right places but like a supermodel in the end she was just too demanding. if i got lazy or took my eye off the ball (even for a split second), i hit it short or clipped the tape.

    the biggest problem i had was that i found it difficult to get heavy top with my FH. with the mid i would hit a flatter drive or if i tried to hit heavy top, the ball would be more loopy or i would miss the sweet-spot and hit the net. i normally hit a ball 3'-5' feet over the net, drive it deep and kicks up after landing 5'-1' inside the base line, without ballooning.

    as as foot note, i also tried the regular youtek mid and found the performance to be similar to the IG, the feel was much better with the IG. there was a slightly larger sweet-spot with the IG. but both lacked the spin potential i am accustom to.

    to be fair the mid demos was with with some black/white hybrid. I normal string with full bed of RPM at lower tension.

    so now what? the precision and feel was amazing with the mid, i cant go back to playing with my delta core legend leaded to 12.5oz, 340 sw. i am looking to drop weight and SW.

    i am considering the IG PMP, IG PP, vcore 95. i am having reservations on the spin potential of the MP, and concerned with the control of the pro with lower string tension. but i am leaning forward the Pro.

    if it went to the MP or vcore I would likely mod the spec similar to the Pro.

    anything else i should look at? i am biased against wilson. don't ask me why, i just don't like them. hit with K90 (nice but another supermodel and too head light)

    thanks

    Lol, oh man good stuff. I'm thinking we can all agree Mirka is no supermodel and yes, poor fed we can probably all agree he can do better. And good analogy.

    who cares if he can get 'better' girls.. she takes care of alot of things for him and they have the cutest daughters ever. It's not all about looks.. not even close.

    ^ Agreed.
    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. A woman who can keep a man in check, is not selfish and support him emotionally is a keeper.

    SPECULATION
    I'd love to date Kirilenko. But Mirka just seems so..... what's the word I'm looking for?.... wholesome.... caring... nurturing... which is attractive imo, and bodes well for a long-term relationship.

    Trade her in on the MidPlus. Sure, she's got a little more meat on the bones but she'll appreciate you more and not let you down. She'd marrying material, for sure.

    If the IG Prestige Mid is a super model, then the Volkl Tour 10 Gen 1 MP is a MILF.

    Cool that means I've been dating a top model :p and I keep her in check too.. Coz I play my best tennis with a pc600 leaded up to 404 grams..

    Just into a more serious note tho.. From most of the review I've gotten, the ig youtek prestige mid is very similar to the pc600.. What do u guys think?

    Don't date a radical junior 25" or you'll be arrested.

    Not only do we have the same tastes in music my friend... but it seems we share the same affinity towards a certain mold of female.

    I'm glad to see another beautiful women appreciator out there!

    Maybe our music similarities lead to the love of the same type of women? ;)
