    I was looking at the VE 10 Mid and compare side by side with a VE 10 mp and a LM prestige Mid. To my surpirse, the VE 10 mid is the same size as the VE 10 MP.

    While being listed at a 93 sq inch on the frame, the VE 10 Mid is a LOT bigger than the LM Prestige Mid, which is also listed as 93 sq inch

    Someone said the LM Mid is smaller than a 93 head, since it's seem smaller than a Tour 90

    Anway, i just can't justify the fact Volkl listed two same head size racquet as mid and midplus

    Maybe it's an marketing gimmick, making people feel good knowing they play well with a mid stick while infact it's a midplus

    I agree w/ Ed I play w/ the v-10 mid the frame fits inside the mp..but the length of of the center strings are the same as a mid plus..really helps on volleys I never hit the frame on jammed volleys like I used to..feels much shorter to me
