    I am considering to get Youtek Speed MP(18*20). But I found new IG version too. Do you know the difference between IG version and old speed mp? (balance, weight, stiffness and feel so on)

    Actually i am using Youtek prestige mp(18*20), but i sometimes need more powerful one. i think the speed has power a bit.

    Any comment, appreciate.

    The physical difference is 1mm in thickness and the IG has slightly better feel IMO but not enough to pay $199 vs $89 for the Youteks.

    for all intensive purposes the biggest differences are the paintjob and price.

    The IG dampens vibrations a little more but the older model has better touch and feel. The IG also is more powerful.

    Yeah, the IG versions have a noticeably dampened feel but doesn't justify the full price tag over the older youtek

    I agree. This is pretty much spot on.
