I currently use a full bed of ISO Speed 17L poly (cheap string and the tension is 58lbs. I'll try to drop the tension maybe to 50lbs.

I've already before adding lead tapes at 3 and 9, then tried also at 10 and 2, I noticed that my flat serves was heavier and the racket was more stable, though after the game, I'm already feeling some pain in my arms. I haven't tried adding lead tapes at 12 and in the handle.

...You're welcome!
Hi, thanks! I've already tried this and it feels the same as my LM Radical MP, though I have not tried it in a game. It also felt less power but maybe due to the string used.

I don't think this is the way you should go. When I tried it it had a small sweetspot, lacked power, and you had to swing it harder than a Radical. I think you might find it a step backwards. Thicker beam though.

(I now use BLX Pro Open.)
Thank you for this, now I can exclude the Youtek IG Instinct MP (the price is actually tempting since they are on sale). I'm just thinking that it may give a little bit more power because of thicker frame and 100cm head size, and it may help me with my backhand.

My first racket is a Prince Turbo Shark OS, and actually my 2handhed backhand before was decent with that racket. I just don't know why it is very hard for me to hit a backhand with my LM Radical MPs.

the youtek ig newer head models are terrible imo
I see, actually I've already tried before a Youtek racket, Youtek Speed MP 18x20 and I did not like it (or it didn't like me ).


I'll try to look around again, actually I really need to replace them since the handles are already getting brittle and there are already cracks seen when I replaced the replacement grips. I just thought that I need a newer racket with slightly more power in it, 100cm head size, and a little bit easier to swing.


Thank you very much guys
