Crafted for ultimate precision, the Prestige is one of the most popular control rackets in the world, as endorsed by former US Open champion Marin Cilic. The Pro edition balances out that accurate nature with a dynamic 16/19 string pattern, lending no small amount of power to a racket that strikes the perfect balance between aggressive and defensive styles.
The Prestige gets a big upgrade for 2016, with the addition of GrapheneXT technology to its already formidable frame.
By redistributing weight from the middle part of the racket to more functionally relevant areas, GrapheneXT enables easy access to power. It makes sense: if there’s more mass nearer to where the racket strikes the ball, you’ll find it easier to accelerate the racket head right up until the moment you make contact. And this isn’t any ordinary Graphene either – GrapheneXT uses larger carbon platelets to improve bonding, resulting in a racket that’s 20% lighter and 30% stronger than if it were made with regular Graphene.
Don’t play within the lines, aim for them.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
