    Hey all, my last 2 remaining pc600's were stolen so I come to you hoping for a recommendation. I tried out a fxp prestige but it just feels dead to me and a microgel is good but just doesn't have that thick, rich feeling i'm looking for. So, I was wondering if anybody could recommend a stick that has that same butter-like richness to it that the pc600 does.

    Hope you guys can steer me in the right direction without just demoing everything under the sun.

    Chris

    Chris,
    Sorry to hear about your loss. That is going to be very tough to find a racquet to replace your PC600.

    Maybe you should demo the Babolat Pure Storm Limited, Demo again the MG Prestige Mid, Wilson Kblade Tour, Dunlop AG100, and give the Yonex RDS 001 Mid a shot.

    Good Luck!

    TW sold out of the PC600 over a year ago.

    If everybody holds hands and wishes really really hard then maybe TW will sprinkle pixie dust on some Gamma racquets gathering dust and turn them into Prestige 600's.

    I'm just sayin' it's worth a shot.

    Chrisf, sorry to hear about your loss.

    In agreement with Pushmaster, as of now, it's only the Microgel Prestige Mid (known as MGPM on this board) that can match the PC600 in feel. The PK Redondo is very good too, but not as close in feel to the PC600 as the MGPM is.

    Hmm IMO Redondo with some weight on it feels closer to 600 than does MG.

    Redondo's feel dead to me. The Pure Storm Limited Too.

    The obvious, easy answer is the MG Prestige Mid. It's gotta be pretty darn close. I do certainly advocate, however, a demo of the Aerogel 100.

    My last roommate made off with them when he moved out. Thinking about it absolutely infuriates me and I have half a mind to track him down and throttle the *******, but ultimately they're just racquets.

    Thanks for the advice, everyone. I added all the suggestions to my demo queue, although either TW doesn't have the redondo or I'm thick because I can't seem to find it. BTW, I'm really interested to see how the Donnay hits. All the reviews were glowing and at $100 that's pretty hard to beat. It's not a stick I would have considered had I not come here so thanks!

    You might want to demo roommates, too, before choosing your next one.

    Good luck with finding a racquet you like.

    Ya, i do, but I doubt it'd do me any good. He's probably just renting another room from some poor fool so I wouldn't even know where to start.
