    Please Help! Deformed/warped Prestige Tour 600

    I guess you are talking about the mains? What I meant is stringing the crosses from bottom to top must be avoided, a mistake usually made by stringers doing one-piece. Always do the crosses from top to bottom, especially important for frames with a soft upper hoop like the classic Prestiges.

    Bottom to top stringing.. I believe. A Prestige, and honestly all frames, should never be strung bottom to top.

    Yonex V core duel G330 cross tying knots location

    Top knot is tied on the 3rd cross, meaning you can only use a starting clamp and no starting knot.

    Saw the post on David Wheaton's Graphite Pro and would like to share something interesting although not quite a Prestige. I believe this is one of Wheaton's paintjobs. It is a Graphite Pro mold, the grandfather of Prestige with a Graphite Tour 600 paintjob. The snakeskin throat dampener of the...

    I see, that is another variation then. One question, do you find the Elite Pro string sensitive? I strung one up with a decent poly and it was no good at all, but even with a cheap synthetic gut they are wonderful. But for Prestige, any string is good.

    Are you the original owner? Just thinking could it be one with the sticker but already wore off. Mine is starting to fall off, worrying!

    Yes, I have also seen 3 variations of the dark brown original Prestige Pro, one with the vibration graphics printed on side and the other like mine with a sticker instead, and the very first I believe that just says Twaron Performance. I cannot tell much difference if comparing 2 models of the...

    2nd gen just says 'vibration-control-system' on side. 3rd gen has 'Prestige Pro 600' printed on side and the vibration graphics. Also 2nd gen is around 345g unstrung like the original, but 3rd gen has variations. I even have one at 315g unstrung, could be a pro stock.

    Yes I play with all the strung ones rotating them, I have some more 2nd/3rd gen Prestige Pros that I use on a regular basis, that would be my favourite among all. The new/pristine ones I just keep and admire, had to make a trip back to the hometown to take these photos.:D

    What was the last movie you watched?

    I watched Godzilla, Days of Future Past and Edge of Tomorrow. First 2 were good but EoT was fantastic. Funny, great acting, everything. A must watch.
