The open string pattern (16x19) of the Pro model of the Prestige line offers easier access to spin and more pace off the stringbed compared to the Prestige Mid and Midplus. With a generous sweetspot, advanced players will find this to be a forgiving racquet. Those who love to attack the ball with power and spin, just like Soderling, will find a great fit here. However, there is also ample power and the needed stability for counter-punchers to find easy depth and impressive accuracy. Our TW testers found Head have improved the feel and response of this latest edition of the Prestige Pro. At net the improved feel results in better comfort without any loss in the precision or stability we found from the previous version. On serve the same easy access to power and spin makes this a very dangerous racquet in the right hands. Our testers found kick serves to hop with more pace and penetration. The precise feel helps keep flat serves on target and the mass of the racquet keeps everything stable and comfortable. A very solid playing racquet, this one is a must demo for 4.5+ NTRP players.
