Head Prestige MP L 20239916x1930328564

There is much to be said about these new Prestige 2023 models and the first thing that needs to be clear is that these are not “stiff” racquets.  Of course, a Prestige Mid 93 strung with poly at 55 pounds will be ultra stiff on impact!   I think that is not the fault of the racquet!

You can approximate the strung weight by adding 17-20 grams to the weight and adding about 30 units to the swing weight.

Racquet stiffness can be mitigated by adjusting the Effective stiffness for the player.

Below are some comparative stiffness
