    Hi,

    I came down to these two rackets, and I really like them both, but I only want to get one. I'm having a hard time decide. You can help me =]. Someone good who played with both, or own both, please tell me pros or cons for both rackets. And IF there was already a post on this, please reply with the link. Thank you =]

    the prestige is slightly heavier, so it offers a little more stability. the kblade tour has more control. both have the same headsize. in terms of power, i'm going with the prestige. it also has more spin. however, the kblade tour has better pop and excellent feel when the ball is in contact with the string. both are player racquets, so it depends on what style you would prefer.

    ^Unless I'm mistaken, both do not have the same headsize. The KBlade Tour has a 93 sq. inch head while the prestige mid has a 89.5 sq. inch head (despite being labeled as 93). That would make the Kblade a bit more forgiving of mishits, I would think. I have not played with it, nor the MG Prestige Mid, but I have extensive time the PC600, which has the exact same dimensions as the MG Prestige Mid.

    i went with the prestige because it fit my game better i had better serve, groundstroke and volley. but demo them both and decide for yourself. the only thing i didnt like about prestige was that it didnt come with leather grip

    Since you liked both, I think you should go with the Prestige. It just helps more in the long run. And it sounds like your pretty good, so you should mind the specs too

    KBlade Tour is slightly stiffer.

    Does that matter to you?

    And yes. Because I have actually used both the Prestige Mid and the Blade Tour, and have found Blade less powerful, but more control than the Prestige. Even though trying, I am still having a hard time decide.

    Though I don't own either, but having tried both, I prefer the MG Prestige Mid over the K Blade Tour.
