    Hi all. I was just wondering which Head racquet Soderling actually endorses. TW says the Prestige MP, but when you look at the video on the Head website, it makes it look like he endorses the Pro. I guess Head doesn't explicitly say that he endorses the Pro, and I'm sure TW gets their info from Head. Just wondering if anyone knew for sure. Also, which one is closer to his actual specs?

    Not at all...but he loves to show his collection every chance he gets.
    RS plays with the PT57A, during the MG era he had the Radical PJ, and early in the YT era. They switched him to the Prestige PJ in 2010.

    Bingo. I doubt Robin would try to sell his frames for $750 apiece either, but you never know.

    Soderling currently endorses the YT Prestige MP. They switched him over to those cosmetics in October 2010 from the YT Radical MP Cosmetics.

    I understand that pro players don't use stock racquets; the question was about which racquet he endorses. If you watch his video on the Head website they have all these slo mo montage shots of the Prestige pro. Thank you for those of you who answered my question!

    For an MG PJ. $750 for the FXP.

    kiteboard, I feel sorry for you. You're asking for $1000 for a racquet that's worse than most racquets you can buy in the store for $200

    Please stop posting that nonsense here...
    How is "that" racket worse than "the other one"...
    For me, the Walmart racket could be better than the H19...
    Anyway, the PT57A is a great, rare and desirable racket. It is definitely worth (to most of us) more than any stock stick...but no a $1000 or anything in that range...
