This racquet is fairly intimidating to say the least. If you're not decently advanced in the game, I really wouldn't even demo this. This racquet is really heavy, much too heavy for me (24 year old female player, and played D1 tennis). I'm used to the feel of the Pure Drive, and this just didn't have that feel. I felt like it was extremely hard to swing through the ball and I was exerting all of my energy. Having said that, the racquet provided great power and control when I could get a good swing on the ball. My serves were powerful but I struggled to produce spin with this frame. If you can get past the heavy feel it it worth a try, but proved to be too heavy for me and also gave me some arm pain.

Took the Prestige MP out for a demo last week and this racquet is an advanced player's frame. I would recommend a racquet with these specifications to a high level player that can handle the dense string pattern and heavier 12-ounce weight. If you’ve played with the previous generation you’ll notice a little more stability due to the enhanced Graphene technology. The thinner beam did allow me to cut through the air faster resulting in a quicker swing speed. If you can produce your own power you will enjoy the feel when you connect with the sweet spot. The response from the racquet is very clean and precise allowing for my shots to go where they are intended. 4.5 player.

Best update yet from Head's Prestige racquet line. I've been using the Prestige line since the Liquidmetal days, and I really was stoked about taking this racquet out for a demo session. The first thing that really stuck out about the Prestige XT MP was the maneuverability on this frame. I could swing big from all areas on the court. Very stable feel up at net, allowed for crisp feel on drop shots and put-away winners. Great frame for an experienced player that likes a stable racquet with great control.
