    Try google 'youtek ig prestige' images, and they even have a cache on the deleted thread.

    Was the pic you guys found of a Prestige Pro??? The only pic I found that referred to this site was a throat pic of a Prestige Pro.

    I saw a couple from a link in another thread here on TT. 3 pics of an IG Prestige but weren't very clear. Not sure which one it was between the Pro Mid or MP. The graphics were red/black similar but different than the current YouTek, and it had clear CAPs. I thought the clear CAPs looked kind of cheap.

    Yeah that would look weird with a clear cap. I like the black better

    Yeah not impressed with the new look... classic and understated is better, the current youteks are real lookers.

    For those of us not internet savvy enough to actually find these elusive pics, can someone throw me a bone and post a link.

    An email to my profile would work too if it shouldnt be public.

    Thanks

    Thanks guys.

    I guess that was a partial IG prestige pic that I found, but I wasnt sure. I got happy for a sec when I saw the pic in the link b/c it was a 16 x 19 pattern, but Im assuming its the Prestige Pro, not the mid.

    Not really feeling the new circuit board PJ motif tho, a little too gimmicky. The Youtek PJ is better, IMO.

    It seems clear caps gave them an opportunity to almost preserve the current paint job while changing the look.

    It's a good idea, and in any event it only lasts for two years.

    Those which have access to Head development or testing can you please confirm that new Radical Youtek IG MP will be also available in 16x19 version.

    Thanks for tips. :)

    From the picture it looks like the Prestige has shared holes for stringing crosses and mains in the top of the hoop? If this is true this is a totally different pattern than the previous Prestige line.

    Yes it appears to be the S. Hard to tell if that is a Mid or MidPlus?

    If the new Prestige line will have clear CAP grommets, won't it be easier to identify which pros use a certain amount of led in the head of the racquet?

    It will be interesting to see if some of the players on tour will still put black CAP grommets on their frames.

    Midplus. It is apparently a lighter model also.

    I'm speculating that if it is lighter (and based on the difference in grommet placement), the S will play very different than the current 16x19 Prestige Pro.

    I´m not a big fan either of the new cosmetics of the new Youtek IG Prestige S. I remember the days when the i.prestige was the talk of the town. THAT was a really nice PJ! A true colectors item, the i.Prestige. Before it´s time actually with all the i-hype,, i-pod, i-pad, i-phone, and i-prestige ;)
