Head FXP Prestige

i only noticed this problem not long ago. both of my prestige mp's lost their solidness... everytime i strike the ball, it feels like the racquet has been cracked but they are not. i even have a really wide dampner to reduce most of the string vibration.

what is wrong?...

I demoed this frame and hated it because it felt like I was hitting with a wet noodle. Perhaps the demo I used has been used so much it feels this way? Could it be a natural characteristic of the frame? I'm interested to see what others think.
 
one has full job of pro huurricane tour 16 - strings been in there for a while
one has pro hurricane tour 16 on main and head tour 16 on crosses - freshly strung. 57 on mains, 59 on corsses.

interesting...the fp prestige to me was the crisp, and imo, the nicest feeling prestige midplus...i've tried it with quite a bit of string setups too....it could be the strings...but if it was cracked, it would feel harsher and vibrations would be worse.

Weird, because the FXP is not THAT flexible. It's actually stiffer than most prestiges (the I. series one is up there with the Flexpoint in stiffness).
