Re: buying a new prestige racket

The correct grip size is important for control and comfort. The best grip size is the one that matches your hand size. See here for an explanation on how to find the right size. I have extremely big hands and need to order the 4 5/8 (the largest size) and put three overgrips on!

Sorry I can't give you any advice about the racquet. I use the ProKennex Ionic Ki5 and haven't tried a prestige. You probably already know most of this, but here is a page about selecting an appropriate racquet given your game and requirements.

Re: buying a new prestige racket

the prestige mp is a great control racket, provided you have the ability to use it. there are currently three other versions of the prestige: the team, the pro and the mid. the team is a lighter and larger frame, aimed more at intermediate players. the pro is very similar to the mp, it just has a more open string pattern, so gives more spin and is more responsive. the mid is heavier and smaller, its better on serves and volleys, but a little harder to use.
