    Ig Speed: Great feel but some what low powered
    Pure drive Roddick: Stiff, but superior control
    Ig Prestige mp: Weird sound when hitting the ball (sound like thwock or something)

    Which one should i get???

    Agreed. If you can't demo, go with the ig prestige mp. IMHO Put in a dampener, and all the pingy noise will go. Great feel, maneuverability and decent spin.

    Speed 16x19 and Pure Drive-totally different sticks. Babolat-it does not control oriented racquet, other than Pure Storm Line. In general, a rather odd list, between these rackets have little in common

    Head Prestige Pro with All Poly set up...
    I have mine strung with Genesis Black Magic at 50lbs and love the racquet. I had MG and YT models and this one is better. The feel of the Prestige is money...

    The fishy looking thing that sticks off the East C
    Very interesting demo list.

    I can't comment about the IG speed (only have ever played the Youteks and hated them) but between the PDR and the Prestige I prefer the Prestige.

    While I liked the Pure Drives, I felt them a bit tinny-- just didn't feel solid to me. I much preferred the Prestiges (I've played the MG, YT, and have hit with the new IG).

    You'll find that you can get away with a lot more with the PDRs, the Prestiges, imo, are a more demanding frame.
