    IG Prestige MP Same as Youtek Prestige MP?

    Sorry for the newbie question, but are these the same racquet ? I know the lineage of Prestige from the days of old (Classic>I>LM>FXP), but don't really know what came after that. I googled both and they both look the same to me. Any way to distinguish the two?
