The prestige S rackets are good in theory but they are not that great to play with.
The Graphene Prestige S racquet is one of the most honest frames out there. You get out exactly what you put in. It's light (305 g) and flexy, so not a lot of power. It doesn't do any extra favors in terms of power or spin. One of my favorite frames, though.

let me know when you sell i wanna try it!
Not sure where you are based but they are on UK **** at the moment with a sensible starting price (along with a load of my other excess tennis stuff). They are the only ones there but I have the same username so should be findable...

Lol, I have been thinking the same thing, that RF logo is inspiring me to create something awesome, possibly non tennis. I wanted to turn my Head Extremes into Minions (the little yellow guys from Despicable Me) or something crazy. Which beer logo?

That would be hilarious. The goggle eyes would be good for your Extremes.

Dunno yet. Maybe Dos Equiis or the Guiness harp. Got a good idea?
 
I wanted the Boris stencil couldn't find one here (UK) so that's when I decided to make my own stencils. For this one I just googled serving man silhouette and blew it up big. Might not be quite the same but fairly close though.

Looks good though! Lovin' all your prestiges, best frames ever (imo).

Btw, what's your LM strung with?

Thanks. I've been using the F3.0.Tours mainly for the last year or so. Just got the M2.0.recently and haven't used it much yet. The 400 Tour I have quite a while and ot used it but have been enjoying it lately strung with Head Lynx.

Which do you prefer, the Graphene or XT Speed?
ha ha ... good question. and one that has been batted around quite a bit. Honestly, I think the strings you use make a bigger difference than whether you use the graphene or the XT. that being said, I do seem to prefer playing with the graphenes over the XT. but I like the XT paint better, it is really sharp.

Have you tried the XT with the 16x16 string pattern?
yes, I personally didn't like it. I wouldn't mind giving it another go, but it just felt too open to me. It confused me, honestly, I didnt feel like I knew where my shots were going and couldn't find the sweet spot.

when strung up 16x19 it is a little tighter pattern in the middle than the Graphene MP.

Sounds familiar. I had a Prince 98 ESP for a while and experienced the same. Great spin but difficult to control. Not for me

My Prestige S's haven't seen much action. I actually tried playing with one of mine for a set today. Maybe because I was tired and felt burned out, but it seemed like work winning with it (although I did win!). It also may have been the strings, tension, the wind, the sun...anything but the player :) I picked my two up as a set, and just haven't hit with them enough to know them. I did hit a few beautiful shots though, which gives me hope! Now that you have gotten to hit with them quite a bit, what's your opinion on the Prestige S? (sorry if you have posted about it elsewhere)

well first just let me clarify that I've got the current graphene prestige S, not the previous iteration. that being said, other than feel, I think the two frames are probably very close in terma of weight, balance, flex, power.

I really, really like the Prestige S. Soft frame with great control. It's like you said though, it doesn't give you any extra help. It's easier for me to generate spin and depth with the Speeds, especially when I'm getting tired. mine hasn't been used since I lost my last league doubles match with it ... which probably was not the racquet's fault. but regardless, this season I'm looking for a frame that gives me a little help.

Here is some of my gear. I don't have my 2 Dunlop Aerogel 4D 200's in the picture, they are getting strung and new grips put on (leather).

Head Youtek IG Prestige Mid x3
Yonex Power Cushion Pro
Adidas Barricade 8+

Are the yonex shoes really cushion?

actually I did have a dunlop muscle weave but moved it on down the road. I just couldnt develop any pace with it. havent tried a yonex yet, although I really like that 93 theyre making right now.

My favorite frames are the Head Speeds. I like both the MP and the S.
