So perhaps the reason for the disparity lies in the racquet composition? I notice that the i.Prestige is, for the most part, graphite while the LM/FXP/MG etc racquets are composed of graphite and another compound.
The Prestige Pro/Prestige 600/Prestige Classic 600 are all the same layup and composition of Graphite and Twaron.

The i.Prestige is graphite and piezoelectric fibers. Best of the post Twaron frames.

The LM Prestige is graphite, piezoelectric fibers, (supposedly) Liquidmetal Titanium, and polyamide. But they messed up with the layup and it played horribly having a very metallic feel, poor stability in the hoop, and lots of vibration.

The FXP Prestige is graphite, piezoelectric fibers, (supposedly) Liquidmetal Titanium, polyamide, with "special engineered flexpoints" in the hoop at 3 and 9. The stiffest ever feeling Prestige.
