NEW Prestige MP 360

vsbabolat

G.O.A.T.
I’ve finally gotten around to customizing my 360+ Prestige MP and strung up with some very nice matching Tecnifibre string at 55lbs and we shall see how it goes. I didn’t like the Luxilon Element but did appreciate that it didn’t ping and I played well with. I can’t wait to see how she performs with my specs with a string and the tension I like in it.

Let's have a showdown after the big sick.

Come to my club if you want, ask D, it's like paradise.

Mind sharing the specs? Lead in the hoop?
Is that biphase? Surely not red code?

@vsbabolat thanks for keeping an open mind about the racquet and giving it a second go around. I feel like Head is moving in the right direction with the 360+ technology...
The demo I originally had was really badly strung. It was strung way too tight and was supposedly only 57 sure didn’t feel that way. I think this round of racquets is a huge improvement. I’ve been told I play well with the new Prestige MP

@J011yroger which would you say is better....the Youtek Prestige MP or the Youtek IG MP?
Trying to build a nice Head collection of Prestiges and Radicals. What radical would you say if best feeling?

Not jolly, but the youtek was very low TW and super buzzy even with weight added. Had to take 3 mths off from the TE it gave me.

The IGs were miles better for the prestige (and extreme) line. Never personally used the rad ig, but it is still used by pros on tour.

I think the YT Radical was a better version of the IG Radical
As for the Prestige, I agree, the IG Prestige was a hit. Pros have used the TGK238.4 a lot though.

I have the following on the way to sneak some hits with:
Pro Tour 280 (MIA)
Youtek IG prestige Pro and a MP
Youtek IG Radical Pro
Graphene 360+ Prestige MP

Should be fun seeing which I like best.

I have a feeling I am gonna end up like both the Youtek IG Prestige’s and the Radical based on specs and others reviews

Good grief dude. So 350 strung SW on a 98? No wonder it's hard to get moving.

Dialing back to 340 SW likely will result in a power increase for you.
Who complained it’s hard to get moving?
My original demo was stock thanks. I bought this racquet a couple of weeks ago and came strung with Luxilon Element and played with it until it broke. I only customized it and strung it up with Tecnifibre x-one biphase 2 days ago. It has much more power now and I quite enjoy it.

Exactly what I told Dale Earnhardt Jr when I met him - moo much horse power and too low to the ground. How do you take it to Walmart, man?

I know this may be a long shot, but is there anyone who has played with this prestige mp and the boris becker 11 mp that could give any comparisons?

A little more feedback would be great. I guess i will be more specific. What would feel stiffer? Because otherwise same beam, headsize, string pattern, similar weight (would lead up the prestige to desired weight).

Just got my 360 Prestige MP delivered today. Cant wait to give it a whack or two. Trying to find a new main stick. That, PT280 (MIA), or IGPMP. Thinking it will be the new one just for ease of stocking up.

Is your butt built up? That is a weird question to ask for sure, but didnt know any other way to phrase

I don’t think understand the question? I have put weight inside the hairpin. I have not built up butt cap in anyway making it larger

That is it...the buttcap is larger. LOL That is something I want to do. Your racquet looks great. BTW...what tension are you running on strings? I am goiung to string mine with Hyper-G 17g , but not quiet sure on best tension

It sounds like the Pro with a leather grip would be the best of the bunch. The MP feels a little “snowshoeish” with the elongated head. There’s so many other racquets in this category...
 
I’m really glad I have the the 360 Prestige MP a second look. I’ve been playing very well with the Prestige MP. It reminds me of the i.Prestige Mid. It really has a very nice feel and a plush feeling sweet spot.

Good to hear that. I gave rather more positive feedback earlier about that frame after one hitting – but I also felt that my demo copy had really bad strings in it.
I also feel that G360+ Prestige MP is more comfortable from IG Prestige MP or my 293.1 which is rather stiff racket. I still need more time and my NXT17/AluPower hybrid I use to compare new MP to my favorite Radicala – 231 and Liquidmetal. Would be good to have a bit better feedback (Radicals were loosing with every next model since Microgel – however I still love YouTek/IG Radical for easy and comfortable power) along with extra power/stability.
