K-Factor 6.1 18X20 vs. Head FXP Prestige MP

Can anyone compare these 2 frames? I have hit with them both at different times, and plan to get them both out at the same time for a better demo session... I was just interested to hear what anybody else had to say about the frames. Which do you like better and why? Thanks!
 
Give the Prestige MP some time. I didn't like it at first but the strings settled in and I really found a groove with it.

Can't comment on the K95.

I adore the FXP Prestige MP though. Strung at med-low tension with gut, it's a dream.

Thanks for the reply. I guess many people haven't tried these 2 racquets as you are the only one who replied...

the 18x20 k factor is absolutely USELESS as now i have switched from wilson to yonex, the k factor 18x20 has a sweetspot of a pea!

i have played the n6.1 95 (18x20) for a year and i would wonder about wilson having shrunk that sweetspot so much on the k-version.:D
i have demoed the fxp prestige and liked the n6.1 95 better, but both racquets are good frames. i'd say the difference is in the fact that you'll find a little bit more power on the wilson than the head, and there was also a small plus in terms of touch. but that was for my game!
so best is you take them out for a swing and settle for one - they are not so very different in my opinion. you will see that different strings would make a bigger difference in playing characteristics than these two frames.
 
The k 6. 1 95 18x20 is excellent!. Power and incredible accuracy. The fxp is too flexible for my taste. You could actually feel the racquet bending, like if it vas mese of rubber. That means too low power for my taste.
Anyone can desagree... just my personal oppinion.:grin:

:confused: Some taste. I thought it was way too stiff, compared to the LM at least. I didn't feel any racket bending, and it certainly didn't feel like rubber to me.
I liked the N61 18x20, it was much more controlled than the other string pattern, but I just didn't play well with it at the time so I stopped after ten or fifteen minutes.

My bad :( . I realized now that i really tested only the lm prestige, not the fxp.
