What are the diferences between them? They seem really close on paper, the Fire just a bit stiffer. Are they really that close? Does the crossbar make any considerable difference?

ps: Fire made in austria, PT Designed in Austria (head barcode label inside)

In 2000 I started to play Ti Fire Pro edt instead of the PT630 and i noticed that i approciated the stiffer feel in the Pro Edt. It helped my game a fair bit and it actually felt like i had better control in the pro edt.

Then in 2002 i changed to i.Prestige MP and it was a mile better then pro edt

Sorry to resurrect such an old thread but I wondered if you (or anyone else) could offer some thoughts on the Ti.Fire Pro Edition vs the i.Prestige MP?

On paper they look very similar, does that translate on court too?

Thanks!:)

7 months ago I purchased 2 i.Prestige MP but liked more i.Prestige Mid for its power and stability. Ti.Fire Pro S.E.2 (TK57A-2) reminds me of i.Prestige Mid. Pure joy.

This Ti.Fire is not PT57A. It is stiifer and more controlled. Franco Squllari featuring Ti.Fire Pro Edition (not S.E.2).

This however is more like TK57A. It is matt, shorter ridges and thicker "boxy" frame.

I thought it was established that the Ti. Fire Pro has a PT57C code and is a layup variation of the PT630 mold. Are the comments above saying that he's not using a Ti. Fire Pro or that he's using a Ti. Fire Pro that deviates from the PT57C layup?
 
I'm a big fan of the Head Tis series....have Tis1's and tis4's strung with Forten Sweet 17 without arm trouble as they are very stiff...I string low and hit with lots of top...anybody else in this time zone?

There are two versions of the Ti.Fire Pro... one that uses the PT57 mold with a crossbar added, and one that come from basically the same mold as the Ti.Radical, but with a crossbar. I always assumed he used the PT57 version, as the CAPs fit so seamlessly, and have we ever seen a pro that has CAPs use a racquet other than a PT57 or PT10 (Prestige mid)? Funny, if you zoom in on the pic where he’s preparing to serve, the paint job say Ti.Fire Tour Edition. Did his racquets ever say Pro Edition?

Pretty rare racquet, the TI Fire Pro Edition in Australia. I remember the CEO of Head went to Austria and he brought back 20 of them for players who liked the twin tube feel. My recollection was that it was a very soft frame.
