    I have used a Prince graphite tour NXG midplus for a few years and have loved the feel off the string bed. But now I'm getting more competetive and i originally was going to get atleast a second Prince, but I can't find them. Does anyone know what racket would give me a similar feel?

    I currently have a Mid+ NXG for sale in grip size 4 1/4" that looks brand new.

    However, no other racquet I've used feels like the NXG (mid or mid+). You may want to try a PK Kinetic Pro 5G, though... as it's plush/muted feel is similar.

    They are VERY easy to find...look harder!

    You can start by posting a wanted ad on this forum!

    I see them on e`bay and the forums here a lot. unless you have a uncommon grip size like bigger than 4 1/2, I think you can get them for cheap. Good luck~
    goto the for sale section and search "prince nxg"
    I just did this and got a ton of hits. selling around ~40 dollars each

    I've had a couple of midplus NXG's around for a while and one frame that might be a good alternative to those is the Volkl C10. While it's by no means a carbon copy of the mp NXG, I sometimes compare my C10's with them and aside from the Princes having a slightly firmer hoop and maybe a little more spin potential, I think these two have a bit in common. The DNX 9 could be a potential alternative to read up on, too.

    The Prince Hybrid Tour has a little bit more backbone than the NXG mp, but I like that frame a lot for all court performance and in your case, it already has a familiar grip shape. In case the HT isn't quite as headlight as your NXG, it would be easy to put some lead on the handle and dial it in. I also played the Yonex RDS 002 Tour for a while and that's another frame with a personality that's not too far removed from the NXG.

    I just got 2 OS's from another forumite for $100 shipped from Sweden. Now I have 2 mp's and 3 os's, and I put every other racket I own in storage. I'm sticking with them. Post on the wanted/for sale forum and look on e-bay...you'll find some eventually.

    How much are you selling your midplus NXG for?

    Also as far as a racquet that feels the same as the Nxg there aren't any. It has a unique feel. The super then frame along with a dense string pattern give it that unique feel.

    Sure, just email me. You can send the cash and I'll send the racquet on receipt. I've got many references that you can research.

    like this racket... the mp and the os.. but mostly the mp... can really drive hard and thru the ball and still get super spin and control.. its very precise. als nice for feely stuff drop shots and dinky shots. stable but still maneuverable. eats strings though.. cant find a good combination for it .. tried multis and hybrids .. gut is up next at round 54 lbs.
