    I just started using the LM Prestige MP and really love it.
    My previous racquet was a PD +. The LM gives me alot more
    control ,but retains my ability to hit a sharp slice backhand.

    I have it strung with Laserfibre Supreme 17 at 57 lbs.

    I will be buying my second one and would like to know if anyone has a suggestion for a better setup.

    My player profile is: I am a highly ranked (#4 in Georgia) 4.0
    all court singles player. I have a medium speed swing on the forehand, but my games is mostly based on a hard backhand slice
    groundstroke and approach shot.

    Thanks for any help

    Hey Gary,
    Pete Snyder might hate me for this but if you get Eric@Racquet Express to set you up with some Pacific Tour Gut (even if you use it in a hybrid) you won't believe how much better your whole set-up plays.

    Would Pacific be a lot better than the Babolat VS Team Nat 17? I am thinking about getting the Prestige also.

    Pete doesn't have to worry about me any more. He already
    moved up to 4.5.

    It has been a long time since I used natural gut, but I am mot a string breaker, so maybe i will try it.

    See you at a future tournament

    Well, I've got one, strung with VS Team 17 natural gut at 57 pounds. Very sweet set up with tons of feel and a nice pop off the stringbed. I love the amount of handle feedback I'm getting with this stick. Mine weighs 12.4 oz. with an overgrip, a far cry from the 11.9 oz. published weight. But the added weight is actually quite nice and adds to the overall stability. Hope this helps.
