    Weight of your preferred racket?

    Went down from 352g to 337g recently. Funny thing is that I see a lot of really good players (5.0+, college students etc) using sticks that would be considered "light" around here (~300g unstrung and no customization). Makes me wonder if I shouldn't be playing something lighter. In my case...

    Head Gravity

    I'm a long time I. Prestige MP user and I found the gravity pro to be much easier to play with, but I'm really struggling to get used to that new pallet shape. Already bought a tk82 pallet, hoping that it'll deal with the "awkwardness" problem. Did anyone experience this? If so, did the...

    Head i. prestige mp user considering a switch to gravity pro - opinions plz

    Quick update. Finally decided to leave my prestige at home, in order to force me to use the GP only. PS.: I've added leather, so the balance feels a lot better (341g with an overgrip). Still struggling with the square-ish grip shape, though. Balls are a LOT heavier, bouncing high...

    The Cult of PT57

    It's easy to find those racquets with the same specs (at least weight and balance). I currently have four - two weight 352g with leather + og, and the other two weight 351g and 353g on the same configuration. If I had to bet, I'd say the difference is probably due to the leather being a natural...

    I don't think I've found a replacement. :-D

    First impressions: -Serving with the gravity pro is very easy, as it cuts through the air nicely. Good power (noticed a power boost in comparison to the prestige) and easy to hit slice and kick serves. Ps.: After playing a full match using the GP only I decided to hit some serves using the...

    Strung it with my usual copoly, msv focus hex ultra 1,15mm @ 24kg. Headsize doesn't look all that big, even though I can't remember when was the last time I've played with a 100in² racquet. Comparing to the i. prestige mp, the string pattern looks almost the same in the center. Here are a few...

    Got a bit lucky, mine came exactly on specs (unstrung). I just set up my stringing machine and should be able to test it later today. I'll post my first impressions later.

    RF97A to Gravity pro

    Never tried the RF97 (too hefty and too powerful, as I heard), but I bought a gravity pro without any demo as a possible replacement to my beloved i. prestige mp's. I'm noticing a trend of people trying the gravity pro as a possible "user friendly" replacement to their advanced player's...

    I would gladly get a new pair of young legs if I could! haha

    For now I'm planning to keep them. That might change if the gravity pro proves worthy of a switch. ;) I got four of them, might keep two in that case. Thanks for your input. (y)

    Pulled the trigger without any demo. Thanks for all the info and feedback on the gravity pro. Now it's time to cross fingers, lol.

    Not really, unfortunately. How about quality control... are the specs all over the place or did head improve in the last couple years? All my 4 prestiges have a maximum 2g difference in weight (two weight the same, one has 1g less, and one is 1g heavier).

    Been using the i. prestige MP for quite some time, but recently I've started to consider some change, since my body doesn't recover as fast as before and the racquet unforgiveness kinda cripples my game against consistent players. All my racquets have oehms leather grip and weight 352g strung...
