    How do you guys obtain these rackets? Is it possible for me to get the I.prestige since its discontinued?

    Do the PT57Fs have real Liquidmetal ridges?

    But it didn't have holes either.

    Yeah, they do have the concaved ridges. I'll try and get some pics up that better represent the ridges. I'm not sure how (or if) the fxp plays in but... wow, very solid feeling frame!

    Here are some new pics. Are these the liquidmetal ridges around the fxp holes?

    The LiquidMetal Ridges would be located at 10, 2, 8, and 4 o'clock respectively. Your racquets, the PT57F do not have LiquidMetal Ridges!

    Yeah, I've never seen a lm frame up close. I did have a few that were painted to look as such but... you know how close those are. Thanks for the briefing VS :)

    I wanted to confirm- is the f model an "a" mold just with foexpoints, or an "e" mold- or due to the flexpoints being there is it an entirely different model altogether? I am looking at these but have seen committing info and if I were to match to pt57a I already have, would I really be matching or would I be getting an entirely different frame?

    Thanks for the help on this

    PT57A does feel less stiff in comparison to the PT 57F. You wouldn't be matching.

    PT57A is much more softer. So you can't match a PT57F to a PT57A
