Comments: As a devoted user of the Youtek Prestige Pro I found this new version a big disappointment. I loved not having to customize the Youtek but this one is too light and very tinny towards the top of the string bed. I weighted the handle and tried lead at 10 and 12 but to no avail. It's a beautiful looking racquet for sure but between this and the new Radical Pro the updates on the latter make it the better choice.

Comments: Firstly, I must commend TW on very accurate reviews. I tried a few racquets except this one (not sold in NZ) so based on other demos I had to go with what the TW team said on their review of the Graphene Prestige Pro and just order it. So glad I did, they were spot on! Love this racquet. Thanks TW! Changed the "weird" leather grip for a Head Hydrasorb, made a huge difference for me! Actually played around with some extra weight in the handle but prefer the stock weight in the end. It feels like the more maneuverable weight and slightly more head heavy balance give's you that extra pop and at the same time more lively and crisp (just like the TW review says). Also love the extra spin! Coming from a Youtek Prestige MP I have the same precision, just more pop, easier volleys thanks to the extra weight in the head and the extra spin means I can stay in those long rally's longer and clear the net with more margin...just like a Gael Simon.

Comments: Relatively good stick, but the Prestige line of racquets are no more "players racquets" -- they now feel lighter and have much less plow through. Basically, head "babolatized" it's most classical model line for the better and the worst, as they say. About me: 5.0 USTA player, play 4 times/wk, Wilson Blade 93.

Comments: I am highly impressed with the adaptations Head made with this Graphene Prestige from the last version. I own the IG Youtek Prestige Pro, which is a fabulous frame with virtually no instability. The Graphene Prestige Pro that I am currently using is a healthy departure from the weight and massive power of the last model. This racquet is crisper, more maneuverable, and a more ambitious experiment taken by Head to advance the Prestige line. I have one strung with Solinco Revolution at 55 lbs and another one strung with Vokl Cyclone Tour at 55 lbs. Both of them play very well. I highly recommend this frame as a demo, or even a purchase. It is a solid choice for any player 4.0 and higher.

Comments: Love the cosmetics -- less retro than the IG!! Love the racquet as the 16x19 string pattern is so much more forgiving than the MP and gives great access to spin. This racquet is the same stiffness rating as the MP but feels stiffer and more "secure" (control with ball). Really stuck with Prestige Pro but found as I am getting older I need to have slightly less weight but with same plow through at impact. Still working on drop volleys but think feel will come back in a couple of weeks or 20 hours of hitting! Players who test this need to try Head Sonic string but does not hold tension. I tend to cut it out before it breaks! Try a different tension as I used to string IG at 56 lbs and now doing 48/46 lbs! This is going to be fun playing with this racquet!

Comments: This racquet has everything the IG version had, just smaller and a little worse in every area. Strung with Luxilon ALU 1.25 silver on down strings and Prince Synthetic on the crosses at 50 lbs and still a metallic pinging and vibration. A different and flat feel in the sweet spot. Balls hit off center simply died with a harsh thud. The Prestige feel is gone.

Comments: I dig this one. Feels great. It's a little lighter, and with the right string/hybrid -- it's perfect for me. The dynamic pattern is a great upgrade -- offering more control on center hits, and more power if you can't get it in the middle of the string bed. I fell like the previous version was vague, and at times too much power. For an "open pattern" this is a wonderful upgrade, great job!
From: Eric, 1/14

Comments: Head definitely messed up. The sweet spot is way too small. It takes way too much time to get dialed in. No likes for this one! Only the weight of this racquet is great.
From: Joe, 1/14

Comments: Not quite sure the guy in the first review hit with this racquet! I've played with the Prestige Pro racquets for several years and this is as good as any of them, if not better. Great looking graphics. Better access to spin. More accuracy in serve. Has a totally different feel to the Youtek version. It's far crisper more modern feel especially on touch shots. I would give this racket a 9.5/10
From: Paul, 1/14

Comments: Wow -- what a complete disappointment. I could never hit this one solid. I cant believe Head messed up this bad. I've used Prestiges for about the last 3-4 years. This racquet has ruined the Prestige line. Arm, shoulder, and wrist soreness from a racquet that is supposed to be flexible. Cheap feeling. No power. Wrong, just wrong.
From: Mark, 1/14

Comments: This racquet was certainly one of the best ones I've tried. I am a high-school student with a one- handed backhand who currently plays with an IG Radical Pro; however, I just didn't like the feel of the Radical Pro. For the past 4 months I've been demoing various racquets, among them the ProStaff 95, Pure Drive, Steam 99S, etc. With some of the racquets, there was too little power, others, too little control. However, the Graphene Prestige Pro had a perfect blend of power and control. My kick serve had extra kick and became even more consistent, and I had easy control over my serves. When it came to groundstrokes and volleys, there was plenty of plow-through and stability, so even if my opponent hit a huge shot, as long as I made contact in or near the sweet spot, the racket barely budged at all. Going on to the downsides -- while the racquet was quite maneuverable, it wasn't as easy to move around as I would like. This made hitting service return shots a bit more difficult than usual. Again, overall, the racquet was one of the best racquets I've tried so far.
