Shocked this thread doesn't exist yet. Is this racquet non existent? if you use it please share you thoughts regarding strings/tensions/playstyles/grip/surface/conditions/weighting/why this frame is not more popular! ^__^

I loved it. I think it played best with a hybrid. But the pocketing when hit well was sex.

I think calling it a Prestige was a mistake as that scares away a lot of folks looking for easy playability. I would say this was easier to play with than the last Radical Pro and with a teeeeeeny bit of lead at 3/9 it was a dream.

I am also biased towards 18 main sticks. It seemed like a natural step up from my IG Radical MP when my Wislon Pro Open was just "too much launch" for me on any given night

loved it.
Any comments regarding the shape of the handle compared to the traditional prestige shape (rectangular)? Also what is you playing style, forehand grip, total weight/swingweight after your modifications, string tension, and do you play in humid or dry conditions?

wanna know my birth stone too? :-D

I recall it being rectangular. Def not Wilson-square but maybe not Prestige-rectangular either.

I am a medium spin SW forehand, one-hander that sucks up at net but tries anyway. My Radicals are 314g unstrung and 325 sw strung. They swing faster I think due to the 95" head but I found no challenge hitting *my* spin with either one. 55/53 gut main hybrid. Humid as H3LL

I believe the entire new 360+ Prestige range uses the newer TK82S pallets that are the ones you'll find on all the newer Head rackets (except the PT2.0).
Agreed. I think the Speed uses a more square grip shape.

The main difference for me was my Radicals were leather so the shape was sooo very apparent. The Prestige was Synthetic. Super comfy but the bevels were lost a bit So it felt like butter regardless of shape

I think The Prestige Tour or the Gravity Tour are must-demos if you are doing HEAD frames or just looking in this type of frame style in general. I would take these over a VCore Pro 100 any day (I feel they occupy a similar space)

Old thin beam. Youtek IG. The last of the 18x20 Radicals. HOWEVER, If I were buying new sticks I would probably go Gravity Tour or Prestige Tour... but the best rackets are ones that you already have ;)
