    They just keep getting better: so the order is Radical, Flexpoint, Microgel (ascending in quality). And I won't fall off the chair if the next one is even better.

    This is such a flawed poll. Where's the PC600? The iPrestige? The Prestige Pro? Etc.?

    So, really they do not "just keep getting better". A truer statement would be "they were great, descended to mediocrity, and are now just beginning to get good again."

    Anyway, of the three on your poll, the Microgel is the obvious winner.

    im gonna go with the flexpoint because its the one i;ve played with the most. the microgel might hav been better if i played with it longer (and had better strings)

    dragon... seems like we have similar tastes in rackets...

    i hate flexible frames, yet the microgel prestige mid is far better then the i prestige mid and the flexpoint and liquidmetal prestige mids. i like the way it cups the ball.

    i prestige hands down, LM and Flexpoint don't really deserve to carry the prestige name.

    One question for the forum. Anyone who has the Microgel prestige mid- What strings and tension are you using? X-1 biphase 17g at 56lbs. in mine, but Im looking to experiment with type and tension. Any suggestions?

    haven't played fully with the micro, but the FP is really nice. Nice control. Poweful flat servers, nice slice and chop. Definetly easier to swing than, and has more control than the LM, but little lacking on the backhands (LM backhand slice was authoritative, heavy and deep). The FP are really decent. I'm satisfied...for now :D

    stick with them... they are great rackets. Far better than the LM and MG imo.

    I prefer the microgel prestige and then the liquid metal prestige. I don't care for the flexpoint version. I am sorry to say I have not hit with most of the older versions as a lot of people really like them a lot.

    I never played with the microgel. Between Liquidmetal and Flexpoint, Liquidmetal was much better for me.

    Started with Liquidmetal, went to Flexpoint and now playing with Microgel. I think that MG has the best control of all and I really enjoy playing with my midplus prestige...
