Head IG Youtek Speed 18 X 20 has the TWISTWEIGHT 11.6 kg*cm^2
Babolat Aero Pro Drive 2013 has the TWISTWEIGT 14.1 kg*cm^2
Which one can be called more stable torsionally?

PS The Head racket is close to a racket used PREVIOUSLY by Djokovic
(please note the wqrd close)

You go to a ski shop and buy a pair of skis in New England for one grand.
The shop will answer your question (like one above) before I will go to
Colorado

Which racket of two mentioned above is easier for return of serve for
a player of 4.5 NTRP or higher?
Assume a player of 4.5 NTRP serving
By the way Yonex 100S has the Twistweight value of 12.8

Someone sent me a reference
http://www.racquetsportsindustry.com/articles/2005/02/a_new_twist_on_the_twistweight.html

Should I give up and move to the Ether thread?

I didn't see the referenced link, but I'll bite: the higher value.

TW Prof said the same thing I said here in your other thread. Higher TW means higher torsional stability.

Short answer, PD.
Grip size, weight of racket, has lots to do with it also.
More mass or just plain area in the outer frame is usually more stable/stiff.
