Comments: I absolutely love it! I used to play with the Prestige Mid Size and eventually had to switch to the Prestige
Pro because I don't play that often anymore. I saw this one and demoed just for fun but absolutely love it! I feel that it gives me all
the control and everything that I remembered from the Prestige Mid but easier on the arm. I use it with Luxilon Big Banger at 55
pounds and it feels unbelievable. If you are a big hitter and would like a little more control than bigger racquets I suggest you try
Comments: Lighter, faster, leaner. I don't know if it is just me but this philosophy has reached a point where most
racquets from most manufacturers today are too light too fast and too lean, to the disadvantage of the players. I thought that the
Prestige, being an iconic line from Head, would not suffer the indignity of this philosophy and would remain a true players
racquet. Boy was I wrong. After hitting with this racquet, I have to assume that the people designing racquets for the racquet
manufacturers today are just terrible tennis players who have not idea what makes a good racquet good, engineers who maybe
think that one or two variables (like weight and less weight) make a tennis racquet good. I'm going retro to when racquets had
plow through, so you wouldn't have to mess up your elbow and shoulder to return a 100+ MPH serve and ground strokes, and
people would work out a bit to be able to play this wonderful and technically challenging game called tennis. Another iconic
racquet line has just gone to the dogs.
Comments: Very nice frame. I thought Head messed things up making this a 16x19 but the string bed is dense
enough to be an 18x20, about the same as a Blade 93. I can see the potential in this frame, it is almost fine as is, but by adding
about an ounce of lead it could be a real weapon as the frame itself has a crisp, powerful response. The response is also similar to
a Pro Tour 280 as there is a definite flex in the throat when hitting a well struck ball. A great starting point for some
customization. Well done Head.
Comments: I actually quite enjoyed hitting with this frame, it is very light indeed but it has potential when adding
weight. Lacks plow but excels in directional control, very comfortable.
Comments: Demo'd the Rev Pro -- definitely much lighter than the previous generations of Prestiges. Added a little
lead tape at 12. Using synthetic gut 16 gauge and a 'worm' dampener. I immediately found the Rev Pro to be solid -- no vibration
on off center hits. Has more power than the YouTek Prestige Mid, probably due to the 93" bed and the longer mains. Great spin
from the 16x19. Volleys were crisp. Easy power serving. Bought one and this is now my main racquet. Great job, Head.
Comments: Absolute disaster! The feel of the racquet has completely changed. It now feels very hollow instead of
solid feel of its previous brothers. This racquet does not fit into the Prestige line at all.
Comments: Just awful. Head really screwed up the Prestige Mid. Too light for a midsize racquet. No more plow
through, which was a great feature of all previous reincarnations.
