I have been using a leaded up MG Rad Pro for quite some time and I really enjoy it. However, lately the racquet hasn't been cutting it. I tried a demo of the MG Prestige Pro tonight and fell in love. It was a better version of the Radical without having to use tape. I plan on adding a little to bump the Prestige up to around 13oz and change the swingweight a little. Background info- 5.0 All courter, heavy topspin both wings, fast swing, full western grip, i prefer baseline 2 questions---1. The prestige had cyber blue/syn gut hybrid. Will the feel change much when i use cyber flash in a full bed? I'm not a fan of hybrid because i break it much, much faster than full poly. 2. Do you think it was just new racquet excitement?? I plan on trying again a few more times...and does this racquet shred strings fast? Thanks for any input! I really appriciate it.
