    I have been playing the K Blade 98 leaded up to 11.7oz/6 Points HL. Regardless of what I do the racket just plays too stiff for me as I have had previous Shoulder and elbow injury.(But now fully recovered) I am a 4.0-4.5 all court style play. I am currently testing the Babolat Pure Storm Tour GT, and so far it seems like a great racket that is really comfortable as well. I am awaiting a demo of the Head Youtek Speed 16 X19 being that the specs are somewhat similar. Anybody have experience with both of these frames? If so, any input would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    I tried both and find the Tour GT to be more stable and less hollow feeling which others might say more crisp. The Tour is not a soft racquet but compared to others like the Speed, it feels more comfortable but still offer a solid feel.

    Thanks. I think the PSTGT is the superior frame.

    There is big difference in SwingWeight between these 2 frames.
    Difference in static weight is only 5 grams, but PST GT swings much heavier.

    Yes the PSTGT does swing heavier than the Youtek speed, but swings about the same as my leaded up Kblade 98.
