98si “typical” MP Mold?
I thought there was some talk they were updating to an actual 98 si mold no?

Are you talking actual mold or color scheme design.
If first - I'm done with head

dude, you do understand that on this forum might be Head reps?
if by the photo you publish, or materials you publish they can trace you, the least of the consequences will be that your partnership will suffer.
a worse case can be for example a lawsuit demanding for some compensation.
but this is of course subject to you signing for example NDA (non disclosure agreement) or some other documents.

LOL

Head reps do not attend here anymore due to lack of knowledge and pro stock ignorance

I think there’s a few of us here who have good information about the new prestige’s. especially when the information comes straight from a HEAD rep.

I still don't get why people would leave any incriminating evidence in a posted photo.

If it is a catalog pic.... and you TT name is not literally your full name or tied to similar social media accounts (ie: Blablava is also your IG handle or something) then there is no way to trace anything back to anyone.

If it is a real in hand picture... crop out the area around the racket that may be a shop or where you met the rep... or like your watch or something.

You think a HEAD rep will see a catalog pic and say "oh crap... I showed that to Blablava last week. Maybe that's one of the 200 people I showed that too. Lemme revoke his (but not the other 199 people) access to future material." I doubt it

String Forum used to post pics but that forum and website in general has severely fallen from grace in the last 10 years.

Maybe it was a labor of love for the guy who created it and hes just not that into it anymore. The forums get like, a total of 5 decent new posts month MAYBE

Chill man. What you’re saying is a total BS.
If there is such thing as an NDA over this, then they can go after him for what he already said.

Since there is no such thing, worst that could happen is his post to be deleted if the Head whiners cry to admins.

i´m more interested in the feel of the new prestiges :rolleyes:
It will probably be a thankless feeling. Can't get the classic people to love it and not enough power or spin for the modern folk.

I just hope they keep the oval handle shape

I honestly liked the newest iteration, but it just wasn't any better than my weighted speed pro's. I care about feel the most, so if it's not absolutely hideous I'll give it a fair shot. I just wish head understood that the prestige line is basically a niche audience now. Without catering to them the line will be dead in the water.

Sorry if already been said but don't have time to sift through each & every post. Confirmed by UK HEAD employee, new Prestige line coming in January 2020. No other details sorry.

indirectly confirmed by current sales of the Prestige by TWE

From the photo I got to see by a very nice TT member. The new 360 Prestige MP looks like they took the Touch Prestige Tour mold and now using it for the 360 Prestige MP. Remember when HEAD took the IG Prestige S mold and used that for the Graphene Prestige Pro and has been the Prestige Pro mold going forward. Also remember that HEAD took the Prestige Rev Pro mold rebranded that one too and is now the Touch Prestige Mid. This is typical BS from HEAD product managers now.
I hope I’m wrong about this.

If this is true it's RIP for the Prestige line.

Out of curiosity: from the current Head lineup, do you prefer the Prestige Tour or the Gravity Pro? (I suppose the Blade V7 might be #1)
Sure seems like it’s the end of the line for the classic Prestiges if this is true, but that doesn’t mean that nice racquets aren’t replacing it (nice, but not classic Prestiges)…

We don’t know what else is in the 360 Prestige line up. Blade V7 is #1

I played with prestige pros for about 15 years now using gravity pros wouldn`t the prestige mid be very close to the gravity pro?

last time I checked on specs,

Head Size was 93 sq.i in Prestige Mid vs 100 sq.i in Gravity Pro
string pattern was 16x19 in Prestige Mid vs 18x20 in Gravity Pro

so, not sure how close the 2 frames could be

Hi, someone know if the Touch Prestige Pro is polarized like all the graphenes? That weird balance make me keep my IG. Thanks

I couldn't resist.
Just ordered the discounted Graphene Touch Prestige Mid. I still want to have faith in the Prestige line. *fingers crossed*

With that being said, as of now i alternate between Pro Tour 630 and H19 .

Is it just me or have the Prestiges gotten stiffer than the RA ratings suggest? The RA was only a couple of points difference. Am I going crazy?

For instance the Pro Tour was at 59, i.Prestige MP was rated at 62, MG at 63, and Youtek at 63. Then, the Graphenes went from 64, 65, and the Touch currently on sale at 65 again. Acknowledging that RA is a flex measurement at one point on the racket, but it's only a couple of points difference. Should it make that much of a difference?

To me, the RA measurement is not painting the whole picture.
For example, the PT113B at 61 measured flex feels more like the mid 50's flex. Feels so much better/more comfortable than the Gravity line for example.
The kBlade at 65 flex still feels comfortable.
It is how and where it flexes that matters more to me.

Prestiges have not only gotten stiffer over the years but also lost the feel/feedback they used to haveand turned into a total crap
