Hi all,
I had one of the new Prestiges in my hands yesterday. Correction, it was a PT57A from a Pro painted with the new paitjob, like an MP.
Took several pics, that I am not going to release (I work on product develpment and I know how hard is to keep secrets when a launch is approaching) but the new paitjob looked gorgeous to me. Really nice combination of colours.
Hope Head will release them soon.
Best Regards

The new pjs are already out. Besides if you have a PT57A like you say, then it wouldn’t get taken down. Why even tell everyone you got pics? I smell bs

I bet the paint job was glossy. We peasants get matte paint. Besides photos of the racquets have been floating around for a while now.

Dont care anymore for all the new frames coming from Head.Just received 4 new IG Prestige Pros and will be happy for next 5 years.
Ditto here, except I got 3 new MG Prestige Pros this summer and they're fabulous.
Very nice! Are you guys getting these brand new frames off fleabay? MGPP user here and I would buy a couple new ones more in a heartbeat.

Got mine online off a shop that sells on the bay as well; last time I checked they were sold out though.

Bought Prestiges in a shop in Budapest. It was hard to find the new racquets. Guys even didn’t know that they have such a great racquets on stock, they said to me it’s a old stock ;) low price...

Vsbabolat,
Yes, you're right the quality of the painting and finish did not look like the ones we can buy in stores. That was what attracted my attention, there was a rack with several rackets and those four had much more brilliant colours.
Now that you told me, I have searched for pics; I have to tell you that not all look like the ones I could see; the dark part was not black but a very dark blue and at the end of the handle (begining of the throat) there was a nice grey.
I wished I have gone home with one of those, but not, just for pros' right now. I will have to wait until Head releases them. Does anyone know the dates? Australian Open. maybe?

Thanks and Regards

Hi,
Sadly, I was unable get any of the new ones, I wish I could, those belong to a pro that these weeks is testing new setups for next season (as many do).
I have been collecting prestiges for many years (I'm not young..) and I "almost" have the complete range of the ones ever manufactured, I hope to get the new ones when those got released.
Best Regards

You should have IG Mid for that purpose.
I tried the mid and loved it as well but got pampered by the 98 sweetspot at the net. I recently added some lead at 3, 9 and buttcap and recreated the solid feel I was looking for. Thank you for the reply.

I think HEAD has been missing the boat for years with the Prestige. I know because I used to play with one. The marketplace is changing to lighter and faster and its a reason I buy my frames on Flea bay that are circa 1995.
I am hopeful however. A 99 inch( 18x19) Prestige is just what this old guy needs. I just hope is has some feel and that its a bit boxier or flatter than the recent past..
If its all just marketing, that's just more justification to keep my Dunlop 300G's alive and kicking.
Speaking of which, have you seen James Blake touting the new Srixon(sp?) over his 300G? He actually played on Tennis Channel this weekend with a florescent orange one, not the 95" tour model that Kevin plays with.

All the 2018 Prestige are dull matted color black with red accents color frames, black handgrips. Not too attractive looking! Looks sort of cheap looking frames!

Yeah, definitely. OTOH I'm quite happy for now with the MG Prestige Pro; very solid and vibration free to the point that I do not use a dampener on it. But I do have an itchy finger when it's about ordering a new racquet... :)

That's exactly how a Prestige should be, vibration free

The first brown Prestige Pro came out in 1986.
