Head offers up a Prestige for the ages in this IG update. Providing a plusher feel and a larger feeling sweetspot than the previous Youtek version, this one delves deep into the magic that has made the Prestige Mid a go to racquet for advanced level players since the late 1980s. From the baseline our TW testers found exceptional control and a solid and stable response. The power level is silky smooth, promoting confidence on big, aggressive swings. Players will find power from their ability to use the mass of this racquet to plow through contact. The result is a heavy, penetrating shot that can bit hit with absolute precision. At net the racquet offers excellent feel, touch, precision and stability. Punch volleys leave the racquet with effortless depth and impressive pace. The tight 18x20 string pattern assists with touch and feel on drop volleys and angles. The mid headsize proves maneuverable on serve. Our TW testers found it easy to generate both pace and spin when serving with this racquet. Best suited to advanced level players with the strength to wield a heavy racquet. Those with the strength and skill will be rewarded with the highest level of feel and precision.
