    Where is this in relation to the PC600? I've searched but came up with too many matches and nothing of value:)

    I'm looking for some PC600 and/or i.Prestige rackets and a friend has some Pro Tour rackets he does not use. Thoughts?

    Yeah, completely different sticks. The PT is about 95 Sq. in. (although they claim it's 97) and the PC600 is 89.5 (claimed 93). Both good racquets but really not that similar.

    They are about the same weight, same string pattern, similar stiffness, etc. I have both and I think I prefer the PC 600 over the PT.

    What about the Prestige Classic vs. the PC600?

    I have both, one says Prestige Tour and the other Prestige Classic.

    Both are marked "Mid" and have a L7 Swing Style Rating.

    They are in 7.0-8.0 out of 10 condition in a 4 1/2 grip. Approximate value of these if I sold them?

    Prestige Classic and PC600 are the same. Prestige Tour is not the same as a Prestige Classic.

    The Prestige Tour and Prestige Classic (or 600) very likely share the same frame - but the handle is different.

    The Prestige Tour has a 'Suspension Grip' handle, and tends to play softer than the Prestige Classic (or 600).

    The Pro Tour, as mentioned, is a different racquet altogether. But it's in the same family as the all red Prestiges. All are high quality racquets.
    I have little problem switching from one to the other. The only significant adjustment is for the difference in head size.
    The feel is different with the Pro Tour and the red Prestiges - but both have a high quality, solid feel to them, thus the transition is a fairly easy one to make.
