    That's funny - last night I weighed each stick ( strung w/ damper) & the Prestige Pro/Prestige mid were 12.0, with the Prestige mp 18/20 weighing in at 12.1.

    Those weights correspond to the unstrung weights give or take a 0.1 oz. for type and gauge of the strings used.

    According to your specs the MP should be:
    0.2oz lighter than the Pro and
    0.3oz lighter than the mid.

    If bluegrasser strung them all with the same string, the MP 98 shouldn't be heavier than the Pro 98. Also, it does have a bigger headsize than the mid, but I don't think that extra string equates to 0.4oz.

    with factory weights and balance points soo close to each other between the different models, there is a large chance of getting some pros that weight less than what they are marked at and some mp sticks that weight more than what they are marked at....i have 3 flexpoint rad tours and strung they weight in at 12.1, .2, and .3...
