    Which one do you guys like? What are the pros and cons of each racquet? They are both sort of similar, but I was wondering if there are any minor differences? Feel free to post any other 12+ oz players stick that you might think is better than both.

    a closer comparison would be the prestige midplus instead of mid, the midplus is actually 95 sq in where as the mid is actually 89.5 sq in

    head measures the headsize from the outside of the frame where other companies measure the headsize of the stringbed only

    Head measures their head size from the outside of the hoop, the actual stringbed size is 89.5 and around 95 respectively.

    Head doesn't measure the headsize differently. It's based on how they were once marketed as 600 and 630, which translates as 93 and 98 even though they were never quite that size.
