So I bought this racquet about 2.5 weeks ago after demoing it from TW. I loved the groundstrokes, and felt that the only thing that was lacking for me was the mythical first serve that the prestige line supposedly had. My last racquet was an open patterned FXP radical tour and I could really serve bombs with that so I figured I would get the prestige and work on the serve while I had it. The first 2 weeks were tough, slow flat serves, a bit less on my kicker, and I got this feeling that the sweetspot was playing a little low on the stringbed. I added some lead at 12 oclock, 2 5 inch strips 1/4inch wide, and i felt the groundstrokes had quite a bit more behind them and the sweetspot was a bit more desireable. I took it out for serves today, and still was a little frustrated, but then, I decided to change my tried and true service form and grip a little lower on the handle and added a little more pronation. WOW. I was hitting bombs, that started well long, but once i got them under control it was amazing. Prestige easily added a good 5-10 on top of my first serve which i figured i had peaked at about 110. My second serves also got a bit more consistent with the weight and a grip change, but not quite as kicky or quick as before. Still that first serve had me feeling like Goran at wimbledon out there. Also of note is a satisfying explosion sound on impact that the prestige rewards you with.
