    I am thinking getting a Head Prestige and like to get some opinions from people who have played with any of the Prestiges, e.g., Prestige Pro, Prestige Classic 600, Prestige Pro Tour, Prestige Pro Tour 660, LiquidMetal Prestige Mid, Flexpoint Prestige, etc.

    TGK238.1 for me.
    Otherwise, try the MG Prestige Pro and MP...

    Believe me. There is nothing like the PC 600.

    the I.Prestige Mid is also a very solid frame, the closest you could get to the PC600. However these rackets are all discontinued. The current stock Mids you could try is the MG Prestige Mid, which is not bad.

    Can someone compare the MGPMP to the I.prestige MP?

    I like the MGPMP w/ lead.

    Thanks. Even though the I.Prestige Mid and PC600 are discontinued, one can still get them used. How about the Liquidmetal Prestige? It employs the twin tube technology.

    LM prestige is probably the "worst" in the Prestige family.

    I am (sort of) playing with the MGP MP, and previously used the iPrestige MP for some time. The iPrestige had more power, was less HL, felt stiffer (than the Retail MGP MP), great stick. Made one of the best sounds of any rackets I tried!
    My iPrestiges were heavier than the MGP MP, and had considerably higher SW.

    Currently I play with the TGK238.1 and love them because they feel as stiff as the iPrestige, but are lighter and have a lot of room for customization.

    The Flexpoint MP is a nice racket. One of the best prestiges if you like using MP. The SW and static weight are slightly higher than the MG version, feel abit stiffer too.

    I.prestige Mid is a ridiculous stick... I'm a 3.5 but it was wonderful to play with, letting me rip flat but accurate groundstrokes. The Midplus is a little more forgiving... If Head for any reason re-produces these rackets I'd buy them in a heartbeat
    I tried the LM version with the thought of moving on but it was a bad experience... maybe it was just too different from my expectation.
