    So, I just received my Head YOUTEK IG Speed 18x20. I was planing on restring it with X-One's as I use to have them on my Speed MP 16x19 at 60LB. But changing from 16x19 to 18x20 should I restring it at a lower tension?

    Also, how are Gosen OG Micro 17 synthetic strings on this racquet?

    I'd reccomend going lower.

    Yes, lower. Everyone is different, but I'd go 10%.

    I wonder why there's not much more love for this racquet. Seems like everyone wants the racquet the pros "play" but even with Djoker at #1 in the world there is little or no popularity for this racquet. I don't get it.

    I thought it was pretty well understood (at least according to the thread on here that compared Djoker's racquet and the retail IG Speed MP) that he doesn't actually use that racquet. That's one of the reasons I didn't get too excited about it, although I did like the IG Speed MP.

    Yes- to 99% of us on here we know about paint jobs but to the rest of the tennis playing work who doesn't know about them. They think he is using the IG Speeds. I was more making a statement in general about the lack of populatiry the IG Speeds seem to have.
