    how would you describe the performance? Is it also similar? Angells have higher SW. This may change the overall feel and power lvl. Also does it feel similar in terms of maneuverability ? I have experience with ig prestige mp, wilson k blade tour. I think they must be 340g+ strung but the feeling is very light. It must be the weight distribution. Or maybe there is a bigger factor?- Swing weight?

    Stiffer, crisper, less comfortable, more powerful, more spin friendly.

    I had the Angell racquets matched exactly like my HEAD racquets.

    Gives you more room to add weight. But I think that Angell can give you whatever you want.

    Hi VS. What caused you to move back to Head from Angell? Always wanted to try the Angell 18x20 but a Prestige IGMP has come up at a good price. Currently playing Angell TC97 16x19.

    The Angell TC 97 18x20 is in the rotation. I like the Angell TC97 18x20, its is much more plush than than the IG Prestige MP. The Angell TC97 18x20 has that old school HEAD feel, it makes a nice thud on contact and has no vibration.

    Sounds good. I should know that really having had the 16x19 for over a year now. Try other frames periodically but the Angell does have a unique and satisfying feel to it. Will have to try and track down an 18x20 at some point.

    None of the buttery feel of the MP translated over to the Pro. Unfortunately, it was not a pleasant hitting racquet, but is an overly harsh, vibrating mess. The YT felt softer than this one.

    Are you able to draw any comparisons with the TC97 STW? About to pick up an IG PMP and already have the TC97 16x19. Also wanting to try 18x20.

    I'm sure if I picked one up now I would feel differently.
