Prestige Mid to become the racquet of the 2020s.

Really good stick but I need something with more real estate. 93 vs 98 makes a difference for me.
I'm going from 98 to 93 with this stick, but it's worth it. For me the serves it produces is enough for me to make the switch. I've just had to request a court in the middle of our tennis center so when I shank the ball it won't get lost in the bushes on the outside of our center. I give the surrounding courts a heads up that there will be incoming at random times.

lol. I send the ball a little further

I am really enjoying serving with this racquet.

I love it so damn much that I think I may sell off my TC95 as my smaller headed racquet and stick with the Prestige. Use the proceeds to land a used Blade l.

I don't like to discriminate...and I encourage a healthy competitive spirit, so I'd put both through a rigorous workout and allow them to show me their strengths and weaknesses. I would hope that they come to an understanding that there is really no need to choose or have favourites... I have enough skill and ability to get the best out of both the Prestige Mid and the Prestige Pro.

When looking at the comparison between the two racquets (PT 2.0 and G 360+ Prestige Mid) in the Power Potential Tool, the Pro Tour 2.0 comes out on top in every category except static weight (if that is seen as a negative). It has a higher percentage of power in every area (test point location) that TW measures across the entire stringbed, it has a higher TW (which means it's more stable), it has virtually the same Vibration, same RA, a higher SW (which is good in my books), and very similar balance.

The same goes when comparing the Pro Tour 2.0 with the G 360+ Prestige MP.

It's very interesting. I've tried the G 360+ Prestige Mid and I liked it very much... I'm just wondering why the PT 2.0 is so disliked here in comparison... when they seem very similar.

The G 360+ Prestige Mid has the smaller head size as an advantage (in my book), as it would cut through the air more easily, but there is not a huge difference in SW or balance.

There is no universe where the PT 2.0 is more powerful.

PT2.0 is a 95" but we'll let it slide. I'd like to see the 360+ Pro on this chart

I believe you... just showing what the TW numbers are saying... I know that when I had a syn gut string (that's how it came to me) in my PT630, I had feedback that of all my racquets that was the one that had the heaviest and most powerful shots. It is harder to play with but that was the feedback.

As I said, I had a hit with my friends' G 360+ Prestige Mid and I found it to be a great racquet, I was able to hit all my shots with ease, and I was hitting my OHBH very well (which for me makes the racquet outstanding). I also didn't feel like I was playing with a racquet that was smaller in head size. Most of my racquets are 95-98 sq. in.

Not quite as good as the Vibration (Hz) is higher than the PT 2.0 and the 360+ Mid and MP. Otherwise, the PT 2.0 is more stable (higher TW), same balance, higher static weight, and SW.

BTW, the PT2.0 is 95” same as the PP.

edit: didn’t see that @mikeeeee already pointed it out.

Tested the prestige pro this evening....
Compared to the mid, it's slightly easier to use as expected but less manœuvrable
Stability is comparable
Precision is very good Too, less impressive than the mid though
Groundstokes have nice plow and a lot of spin, on par with the mid
At net, a slight advantage to the pro

Overall, i would advise the mid if you rush to the net and the pro if you prefer to build your points from the back of the court

I personnally preferred the pro by a (very) slight margin

I enjoyed the Pro so much that I'm afraid to string up the Mid and play with it. I don't need more racquet indecision, as I've finally found the one I want to stick with for the foreseeable future. Already bought a 2nd Pro to force myself to stick with it and let go of the racquetaholicism.

Step 1. Admit you have a problem!

If you ever try the mid, do it with new balls and you will see it's not so easy than the pro
Another good racquet is the PA vs :)

Lucky for me I can't seem to groove with anything over a 95" head so it limits my options. I also can't mentally handle using a Babolat when I see how many "fun players" show up to the courts with them and have never tried to improve their game during their 20 years experience.

Pure aero vs is all but a recreational racquet, believe me

Then I think you should send the Mid to a very far away place, like to me in Australia, so you will not have to endure the temptation. I will take very good care of her I promise.
 
The Clash 98 is really good but the mid blows it out of the water.

I would say the clash 98 is better than the prestige pro but not as good as the mid.

Agreed. Hit the Prestige Mid, Pro, and Clash side by side this morning. No contest. Prestige Mid. “A more forgiving, powerful Asian K90” [emoji471][emoji462][emoji471]

I've got to stop reading this thread. My fondness for the previous iterations of the Prestige Mid (iPrestige and YTIG specifically) fires up the nostalgia a lot. And all these comments have me wondering if I could handle a mid again even though I'm loving my current frame.

Yep. Best to run away now.
unwatch the thread and never return! Cast it into the fire! Destroy it!
 
Cool, makes sense. Not a ton of tennis going on yet, so when I play I will just bring a Blade and this mid and mess with them both over the summer. I do really enjoy the Phantom 93 a lot and sometimes still bring one out. It's just tougher to switch from a 333 gram Blade to a 355 one mid session and retain the timing. I don't think I will have that issue with this prestige version.
Mine is 335 strung and I feel no need to modify!!
