I played with a demo of the Prince Diablo Mid a few weeks ago, and what is most surprising about this racket is the seemingly low swingweight for a 12oz racket. I thought maybe this demo was abnormally light, but others have said the same thing. Anyway, the Diablo mid had good power, and is a real spin machine. The curve trajectory of my shots was higher (more topspin) and more parabolic. It seemed the Diablo is better suited for topspinners, and less for flatter, penetrating shots. Overall though, I didn't get the same solid feeling or control as the Prestige or Yonex MP1. At the net, the Diablo was definitely not as good. I think the racket would be better with an 18x20 string pattern, but then it wouldn't be a Prince would it ? On the plus side, this racket is much better than the POG mid, which felt terrible when i tested it.
