Can You Buy Prestige?
Of course, you can! In fact, you can buy four (4) models of Prestige!
You know we are talking about the Head Prestige racquet that has, for many years, been the pinnacle of the Head tennis racquet line-up. Some of the best players in the world got there with the Prestige racquet.
The “Pro” weighs in at 330 grams (11.6 oz) with a swing weight of 330 with a 16×19 pattern.
The “MP” weighs in at 340 grams (11.9 oz) with a swing weight of 319 with an 18×20 pattern
The “RevPro” weighs in at 310 grams (10.9 oz) with a swing weight of 325, and, get this, a 93 sq. in. head size with a 16×19 pattern! This is a dream!
The “S” weighs in at 326 grams (11.5 oz) with a swing weight of 320 with a 16×19 pattern.
The entire Prestige series, except the Rev Pro which is slightly different, uses the awesome “cap system” which is a bumper guard and string protection system the captures the entire head of the racquet lending stability as well as protection. When the strings are installed the cap system sort of collapses around the string keeping them safe from ground smacking!
So, none of these racquets is “wimpy” but none of them are out of the ballpark for good recreational players or those that want to become better players.
I think the Prestige Series has been overshadowed by the “Speed” and very popular “Radical” series from Head but there continues to be valid spot on the racquet roster for the Prestige racquets.
You can try one to determine of you can “buy prestige” for yourself! Demo’s of each model are in the shop so call or stop by to check them out.
