    Anyone knows weight, balance and flex specs of the allbrown Prestige Pro ?

    Mine has "4 3/8 LM 3" on the beam side sticker.
    thank you

    I believe VSB mentioned before, that the older Prestiges are weighed by grip size too.
    I had a all brown PP that's similar weight and balance to yours. sold it becos it was too heavy for me to play. thankfully I come across another match pair that's 330g unstrung 31cm balance. now those are my specs

    Thats why yours is heavier. Its a "LM" which stands for Light Medium which is the heavier weight of the Prestige Pro. The lighter one is marked with a "L" which means Light.

    Resorted back to retrying the beloved PT600 today.. windy day and found the mass and plow really helpful in hitting intothe wind.. nice nostalgic feel, love the racket!

    alright, for the people who have hit with many of the rackets in the prestige line, what are the top 3 for you and why?

    also include racket specs if you want

    Yeah, there was a stretch where they couldn't use the name "Prestige" due to some legal wranglings. So they called it the Classic Mid. It's the same racquet.

    awesome.Thanks PT630 wannabe.
    I don't suppose anybody can compare to Redondo mid.
    Can I expect the same steady,consistent, soft, plow,
    Thanks again playas

    Never hit with a Redondo mid, but have hit with its dad: Type C heritage.
    At some point I thought the Type C Heritage is just the dupe of HEAD classic mid, I could barely tell the difference in play. only main difference is the regular bumperguards (not the CAP on HEAD mids). Too bad the Type C is so rare now.

    Thanks Chang.I once ballboyed for you.You told me to slow down cause i was making you look bad.Honest.If its really you lol That's exactly what I was reffering too.The Type C' Its such an additive stick to not use
    .My elbow loves it.Great for my flat as a pancake game.And so solid and consistently stable.With gut mains,And 100% Graphite frame .Even more butter then my PB10's,
    Hence I'm hoping the Classic MId"aka PC600 will be very similar,with minor variences.
