    Recently I demoed the Head MG Prestige Mid and Midplus side by side.
    Before I thought the Midplus would my fit my game better because of the more suitable specs. But I was a little disappointed in the midplus. It swings a lot lighter than I wish. On TW they rated the sw at 320 (which is not correct I guess) but according to the USRSA power ratings (see http://www.nothingbuttennis.com/html/liquidmetalchart.html) they give a much lower sw (304).
    Though I like the bigger headsize (98 vs 90) I felt the lack of solidness and plow through that I had with the mid due to the increased weight.

    So the extra weight of the mid felt much better with my strokes. I used to play an allcourt game with various kinds of spin (slice, topspin, flat) Only I 'm a bit concerned about the smaller headsize that makes a bit more demanding. Spin shots were also less comfortable than with the midplus.

    I wished the weight of the midplus were more similar to the mid because I feel more comfortable with a 98" (or 95") headsize.

    What other frames do you recommend?
