Head iprestige Midplus, Dunlop M3.0 custom or New rackets?

Hi all,

Got a bit of a dilemma here. I am currently a div 1 club player in the UK and i am kind of stuck with my racket choice.

I am currently using a Dunlop Biomimmetic M3.0 thats been customised to the same weight and balance as the old prostaff 95. The only issues is that this is too unstable. Yes, i could add more weight to make it more stable but at 363 with strings and an overgrip, it does not leave much room.

I am in posession of 2 pristine i.Prestige MPs and tried them out at the start of the year. They are lovely rackets with great feel however i cannot seem to get along with the grip shape. I don't know what it is about the Head grips these days. These are 366 with strings and an overgrip.

Neither of these seem to work for me. In the past i have used a prince tour 100 16x18 (too fragile and broke about 100000000 of them), Wilson pro-staff 97s (great rackets but couldn't get used to the string pattern), Head Graphene Prestige MPs (these were total garbage), and the old wilson pro-staff 85 (fantastic racket but not worth the small headsize in division 1).

I am currently looking at the Pure Aero VS tour, The Pure Strike VS tour, the Wilson Blade 98, and even the Yonex rackets (not sure which though).

I am roughly a 5.0-5.5 right handed player with a 1HBH. I like to hit a strong serve and step into the court. I don't hit with a massive amount of spin but i can if i have to.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!


It is more and more difficult to find good condition iprestiges and if you own a pristine pair just keep them like a treasure. You can try to swap the TK82S pallets which is near Wilson grip shape and give it a try. I would suggest the Wilson Blade 98 if you want to try something new, 2015 version is my favorite right now and I own both 18x20 and 16x19 string patterns.
