    Hello everyone, i want to present my collection of prestiges, i know its not as extensive as other ones, but for me is my pretty treasure:

    left to right

    head prestige pro brown very first edition, no twaron vibration sticker, ...i think is a pure rarity, every hit with it is an incredible feeling to the body and mind.

    head prestige pro brown to red, more headlight than the brown one, need to be strung at lower tension to get deeper shots, orgasmic impact and feel

    head prestige classic xl, a beast, with the incredible touch of these classic, soft and muted impact, glorious shots are awaiting for you if you hit with a long and slow swing, great on serves.

    2 head prestige classic trek font, with twaron, another wonderful racquet without vibrations, maybe the more playable of the group, im in love with it...well, im in love with all

    Nice, I have 3 Head Liquid metal Prestiges MP, L6 swing, use them all the time.
    Prestiges were for a long time the top line.

    Nice little collection you have. I remember those brownish Prestiges, had a couple with the Twaron marking. Great racquets, superb feel completely without vibrations, there was no need for any dampener. That can´t be said about todays "modern" racquets. I might still have one of those somewhere. If I can find it I´ll hit some balls, maybe must have it restrung. I have a PK Golden Ace in great condition to remember a little also. :)

    The first brown "European" Prestige Pro is an incredible stick.

    I've often thought it's the Prestige all the others are trying to live up to.

    Quoted for truth! The Prestige Pro/Classic have zero vibration! If only the new frames that are being marketed with the Prestige name would feel like that! If only the people in Kennelback would listen us. But they have something else they are trying to do. Don't ask me what because I don't know and I wonder if they do?

    Their bosses told them make it as cheap as possible, so, they did.
    The outcome is crappier rackets with every new iteration.

    @ noro... The Elektra plays well, it's the same mould with the Prestiges ( and Elite Pro) flexes similarly too but just the Elektra feels lesser power and softer.
    I had to CAP it becos the old greenish grommets gave way. I didn't trim the sides like what Retrowagen would have done to his Elite Pros becos I don't trust my own trimming skills

    They originally came with the neon green synthetic grip and I change it to leather grips.
