Loved the article. Thanks for posting the link.

Interesting that he's added mass to the throat. I think that the
biggest issue with the YT Prestige is the tiny sweetspot which he
mentioned. I guess that it's even an issue for pro players. It can be
easily fixed with some lead at 3/9 but I think that most pros go with
a polarized setup and skip the 3/9 because they can hit the sweet spot
so well.

A lot of the pros use racquets with even higher, in some cases,
much, much higher, than the KPS88.

Yup, saw those at the club being used by beginners - they had trouble
getting the ball across the net.
