    Can someone explain the difference between the IG speed 16x19 MP, and the IG speed 315, and the Graphene version of this frame (and its new name)...????? Thank you.

    Not familiar with teh graphene line but the ig 16x19 and ig 315 are the same racquets. the ig 18x20 is also 315 grams but different pattern. The IG 300 is 16x19 but 15g lighter but more flexible. IG elite is even lighter in a 16x19 pattern but stiffer, at 65 rda.

    The Youtek IG Speed 16x19 and 18x20 are almost the same racquet except for the string pattern being different and the 16x19 being 0.2" longer than standard (27").

    The Graphene Speed Pro would be the direct evolution of those two frames. It weighs just a touch more and felt more stable and solid than the previous versions (to us). The swingweight is a good deal higher than the Youtek IG models, but we still found it very fast through the air.
