    The shiny warranty sticker of all three of my youtek prestige mids are almost coming off. Is this happening for anyone else? Any ways to stop it from coming off?

    Mine is starting to peel as well. Maybe just put a piece of clear tape over it.

    for sure !!! you use a racket you don't worship it. anyway you void the warranty when you replace the grip :)

    This tells you your warranty is expiring....

    I don't think it void the warranty if you take the sticker off.

    Yea I noticed that with my Youtek Prestige Mid and my YT Prestige Pro

    On another note, HEAD's paint quality is absolutely terrible with the new Youtek models. I'm finding that the paint is chipping just from misshits. That has never happened with any other racquet I've played with

    I agree with you about this as I also see it happens to my Youtek Radical. This is nowhere compares to my old Radical bumble bee.

    Lol I didnt find the sticker aesthetically symetrical so I peeled it off my cracked prestige. I still sent a photo of the crack to TW and they sent a replacement for free :D

    My new one plays so much better!

    I really agree here on this one. I have a friend put lead tape on his YT Prestige and when he took it off, some paint came off as well.

    Are you talking about the sticker coming off or paint chipping very easily?


    I'm glad I'm not the only one with the paint problems. I'm really not happy with HEAD's quality

    Microgel paint was fine. It was pretty thick and didnt chip easy.

    Yeah the Microgel paint is fine. I don't any chipping problems with my Prestige Pros (or my Prestige MPs, and Radical MPs before that). It's the Youtek racquets that seem to have really dropped in standards

    phew, I thought I was the only one with the paint chipping off of my Youtek Rad MP. My fxp MP has gone through more and there isn't any paint chips yet my Youtek Rad MP which I've had less than a year is already looking like something ancient (slightly exaggerated)

    Prestige: yes
    Speed: yes
    Rad: debatable

    I dunno about you guys, but when I play at night with my Youtek Rad MP (time between the sun going down before the court lights goes up, the sky is already dark), my rad looks hot pink to me. I wish I didn't make that comment because my friends are razzing on me for using a hot pink stick :(
