On the other hand, I find the Mid has a very large sweet spot relative to the size of the frame. Even shots hit well towards the edges of the frame are very easy to put in the court. In general, I find it much easier to make spin with the current Mid versus iterations of previous generations, all the way back to the Prestige 600. Adding a leather grip makes it even more head light, which I find helps me make crazy amounts of spin if I want to. YMMV.
This sounds interesting. I have Prestige Tour 600 and struggle with extreme top spin shots as much as with LM Mid (unless I use sharp poly mains). Maybe they fixed something in the hoop with IG iteration, which also explains larger sweet zone.
