    Of course, with a bit of lead. In all seriousness, I'm sure they do exist, but I haven't had a chance to hit with all the racquets out there so I wouldn't know which ones for sure. You can bet none of the ProStaffs are like that though...

    The i.Prestige has a pretty high sweet spot for a player's frame

    Yes, this is true. In my experience i.Prestige has a good-sized sweetspot. I've only played with the regular midplus version.

    I also think POG OS's sweetspot is pretty large and higher up than many players racquets.

    Interesting, but would you say the same about the POG MP?

    The POG MP is a different animal than the OS. Take a look at www.racquetresearch.com. They have tables that rate this for different racquets. It's was last updated a couple of years ago but is a good reference.

    Always thought Babolat PC had a large sweetspot. RR highest recommended racquets all have high sweetspots

    Thanks for the link Gaines, the main reason I ask is because I'm thinking about giving the POG MP a try. I'm looking to make a switch from my Prestige Tour mids and would prefer a racquet with a higher (and larger) sweetspot myself, not to mention better spin potential.

    Ronaldo, I take it that you prefer the Prestige Tour?

    i think what you are asking 'may' be that you want something with a bigger sweetspot and something more forgiving up high. there are many frames like that depending upon what your definition of a players racquet is. the racquets with the higher sweetspots are <in theory> the hammer weighted frames and those arent so good.

    I’m not asking about a forgiving racquet. I hit in the center and upper part of the head. I used to play with a 28" heavy(SW:359) racquet, so had to modify my PS85s. It's not like I want something else, just curious.

    congrats. i think your answer then may be be the Wilson hTour..a pretty crappy frame in my estimation but a higher sweetspot in theory and probably considered a players racquet by some.
