Prestige Mid to become the racquet of the 2020s.

How does it compare it to IG Prestige Mid? I used to play with and still have IG Mids.
Way more horsepower. Swings faster, hits an effortlessly bigger ball with more spin.

I absolutely loved the IG mid, but it didn't have enough steam for me and I didn't get enough action on my spin serves. I still have one though. Maybe I'll do a comparison.

I had to lead the IG but this hits a bigger ball in stock form with less effort so you get the added maneuverability as a bonus.

Thanks. I moved to bigger heads, but now this is very tempting to go back to Mids!
Willl demo some time.

The others have bigger heads but they are inconsistent across the racquet face if that makes sense. Like the head is bigger but the sweetspot is smaller.

What were your thoughts on the Prince 93P mid? A comparison perhaps? Im in the minority I presume but in the battle of the mids I liked the prestige Touch mid more (it gets a lot of hate for some reason). Maybe the new mid is even better.

Never tried the 93p, the 100 was a dud in my opinion.

Respect for the Prestige mid but I’d like to see it share the spotlight with a newer 6.1 95.

I have the fugly new prestige mid on demo right now, funnily enough. Did i mention how fugly it is?

The whole racquet should have been the dark red colour thats at the bottom of the throat, instead of bright fire engine red with orange lettering. Whoever came up with that paint scheme should be sacked, and possibly tortured a little as well.

Serves well for me. I like the 16*19 pattern but groundies were a little erratic, though that could be the strings. Dont like how stiff they made it, feels a little too powerful.

I highly doubt the mid will even SURVIVE the 2020’s, never mind be the racquet for them. Probably wont survive a couple more iterations at most.

The IG had amazing feel, this isn't as buttery but quite good compared to the racquets of today, I'd say better than the Graphene but not as nice as the IG.

I would stick with the 360 Mid, it needs the more open pattern. How cool would it be to have an IGMid as a 16x19?

I like the Ferrari red better than the minivan red.

Everyone I've met besides internet people living in the 80s loves the look.

I fixed it to something halfway constructive, and took out all the other, which is total BS, that no one cares about.

I think it looks really nice. Looks better than all the current gen Wilson racquets. I also think it looks better than all the Babolat racquets, save the PureStrike.
