    Just picked up an IG to try out.

    From initial reading, it sounded like the IG had some added weight in stock form.

    I had all my YT's matched from bosworth, and they're all 332 unstrung. Need to recall what a stock YT is.

    The IG I have weighed in at 323. Balance point is 12.5" from edge of butt cap. I believe that equals 8 points headlight. (13.5" center racquet= 1 inch headlight)

    Gonna try rpm blast at 54lbs since that's what I've mostly been using.

    325 is supposed to be factory stock spec.

    my review for this racquet is short and simple:

    it feels like a mushy version of the youtek. I didn't notice a single thing different other than feel.

    I like a crisp feeling and snap sound at impact, so as of now I'm sticking with my youtek's.


    if your microgels are worn out and you found the youtek to be too stiff, then the IG is your chance to reload with new sticks.

    I agree completely. The youteks were much crisper and the IG's. However I did like the weight of the IG's so I may try and match the specs of that racquet if possible.

    Silky smooth versus mushy.

    Brassy versus crisp.

    Its all very familiar. I think I too prefer the Youtek feel.
