    Which prestige do you use and what do you string it with. So far my best string in my Fxp Prestige mid has been cyber blue 1.25 @ 54

    MG prestige mid with Maxim touch at 62... im still trying to figure out if Prestige play better with full multi/syn gut or hybrid. full Poly are too much a pain on the prestige mid

    Right now, PSGD. I've tried a lot of setups, and always head back to cheapie syn gut.

    My PC600s are set up with SPPP Pure at 50 lbs on a constant pull machine. Your setup probably feels similar to mine.

    agreed.

    multi's lose tension too fast.

    polys play decent at first, but become stiff dead afterwards.

    simple PSG with Dureflex @59-58. holds tension and lasts a good 8-9 weeks

    (plays 3x a week for 2-3 hrs each session)

    You're lucky to get that much life. I tend to pop the stuff after 8-10 hours, but at 59 or so, it stays nice and muted the whole time. It bites really hard for a syn gut, too.

    I have Tecnifibre Pro Red Code in my I.Prestige @ 56 lbs. Hope to restring it though as it is a bit stiff going all the way around with that stuff.

    My LM Prestige mids work well for me with 17 ga. syn. gut at around 60 lbs. I've tried the same stuff in my Prince NXG mids, but the better match for them has been LaserFibre Phenom XRC in 17 ga. at similar tension.

    hehe. i hit pretty flat, so my strings don't move as much. Prince syn gut 16L w Dura flex is great. Tried other syn gut (gamma and wilson) and i didnt like em. Gamma was springy and did lasted long. Wilson's tend to go dead pretty fast. Prince holds it's tension. Had it on for 3 weeks @58. No noticible tension change since.

    i. prestige mp...

    Have been recently testing out a few frames (OMG - yet again! :roll:) and have been v/impressed with an old, short-lived, main frame of mine - the i. Prestige MP. The feel, the control and the way it swings is pretty one-of-a-kind-special as far as I'm concerned. TBH though, I'd really like a bit more of a power boost re the serve - so does anyone have any lead tape tips for this? Anyway, I've gone hybrid - Blue Gear (mains) and Pro Supex Prem Ace @ 53 lbs...
