    Presenty demoing Head prestige mid and mid-plus pro, Dunlop aerogel, and Wilson k-six 90 to replace Head Intelligence Prestige. The Head Prestige 93 is slightly smaller than the Wilson k-six 90 and the Dunlop 95 Aerogel is as large as my Head prestige 98. Why are sizes incorrect from what they state-anyone else notice this?

    This is well known. Head 93 racquets are more like 90 or even less and the 98 are more like 95.

    Head measures the head size from outside the frame, Wilson measures it from inside the frame......

    I have 4 Head MicroGel Prestige Pro and Mp and 4 Wilson K factor 95 and when I put them up against each other, the Head MicroGel Prestige MP 98 SQ" frame is exactly the same as my Wilsons 95 SQ" frames - I would even go as far as saying the Head Microgel Prestige 98 SQ" frames seemed a tad bit smaller.....

    It's a well known fact that Head rackets are way smaller than stated - as have been said, Head measure from the inside of the frame, while other measure from the outside of the frame.

    Head 100 SQ" = 97.5 SQ"
    Head 98 SQ" = 94.5 SQ"
    Head 93 SQ"= 89.5 SQ"
