    Hey everyone, fist post and a few questions!

    I've had my original Youtek Speed Mp since 2010. http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageRCHEAD-HYTS16.html

    However I only one and it's a pain when breaking strings to have to use a completely different racquet. They don't make these any more so I've been demoing and hitting with a few newer racquets.

    One of these was the new Graphene Speed MP. I didn't like this, felt extremely hollow and light. However if I leaded it up to the specs of my Youtek would it be more playable? Interested to hear people's opinions who have customized it. The reason my interest is in the MP, is because I like 16x19 racquets. Although if I can, I'm gonna try get my hands on a demo of the Speed Pro some some thought's on this racquet would be appreciated too!

    Another option is the the new Prestige Pro, which on TW store, seems to list similar specs, almost the same weight and beam width, same stifness, and only 2.8 less HL in balance. The swingweight is higher at 328 but that's nothing I can't handle. Anyone know how the original youtek speed mp and this prestige would compare?

    I haven't seen the Speed Pro and Prestige Pro in my local pro shop where I live so I need a little help on what others think of these raquets before I continue my search for them.

    Regards
    Tom

    I have tried both the Youtek Speed Mp and the Prestige Pro. Prestige Pro is much heavier and more muted. Also it feels like the Prestige Pro is much more powerful not just by a bit.

    Thanks for the reply. On TW the Prestige Pro has a static weight of 11.7 so I assume the balance and the swing weight make it feel quite abit heavier than my current speed which is 11.8?

    Anyone have any experiences with leading the Graphene Speed MP up?

    And does anyone recommend or know of any racquets similar to my Original Youtek Speed MP?

    Thanks

    I might have a couple YT Speed MPs laying around idle if you're interested... But I agree that the Graphene Speed MP just didn't hit the same.
