    12.1oz, 6pt HL, 27", swingweight ~322

    "98 sq in" but really it's about 95.

    Flex is technically 63 or so on the machine, but it plays a bit stiffer than that. Probably more like 66.

    I have to bump this up because I'm not sure that it is correct...I know that the i.prestige mid is 12.1 oz. but I don't think that the midplus is. I recently checked and the LM Prestige midplus is only 11.5 oz. Can I have another opinion?

    There are 2 versions of this rqt. The original with the rubberised finish is a bit heavier than the later smooth finish version.

    My i.pres weigh approx 352g and are 6 pts HL. I've added lead to the 10 & 2 position and its ended up as 6pts HL. My i.pres are the later version so I'd say that thi version is a bit lighter in the head than the original.

    At the ******* Tennis and Running store in Reading, PA, it was listed as 11.56 oz., although that might have been unstrung. Thanks for the input.

  9. Here are the specs for all four versions of the i Prestige. My particular scource is The United States Racquet Stringers Association.

    At this risk of making the whole issue a little more complicated, I must add that I've noticed a few minor, and a few major differences beetween TW specs and USRSA specs.

    Hope This Helps.

    I Prestige Mid (early release)
    Swing Weight 334
    Weight 340
    Head 93
    Flex 65
    Balance 31.75

    I Prestige Mid (Late Release)
    Swing Weight 291
    Weight 326.5
    Head 93
    Flex 58
    Length 27
    Balance 31.5

    I Prestige MP
    Swing Weight 311
    Weight 335
    Flex 64
    Length 27
    Balance 32

    I Prestige MP XL
    Swingweight 335
    Weight 325
    Head 98
    Flex 65
    Length 27.5
    Balance 34
