I found it to be a nice feeling racquet, but had too many shortcomings.
I can basically come up with four words that characterize it for me: solid with no frills. That's really my feeling towards this racket. It's like a blank canvas for any style of player IMO.
The prestige s has a nice soft plush feeling, but it's a tiny bit unstable and I don't like the clear caps. What's also interesting is this demo round I ordered a grip size down from my usual size 4, and I really like the change! Pickup shots are easier it seems because I can flick my wrist easier...maybe it's placebo?
