So a couple of weeks back my buddy and I were digging through his tennis bag as he's getting ready to sell a ton of his gear and I found a Youtek Prestige or what looked to be a Youtek Prestige unstrung with a Finest Calfskin grip. I picked it up and noticed there there were no throat specs on it, only the code PT57A. I asked where he got it from and said his coach gave it to him and I could tell he hadn't a clue about this frame. So I explained it to him and even brought him to the board and showed him how much these frames are talked about he simply said that's nice. So I offered him $150 for it and he just said. "nah, take it. You can have it." :shock: So I finally talked him into taking $50 from me for it. So for the past couple of week I've been hitting with this thing of beauty and I must say it certainly is a great racquet. It cuts through the air/ ball like a hot knife in butter. Nice and soft on the arm. I must say- she is a treat. I've played 4 matches with it- won all in straigh sets. I wouln't say the game has raised my level of play but it certainly has given me a cool guy feel on the court. Started with an all poly set-up then tried an all gut set-up followed by a full bed of X1 and now I'm doing the poly/gut hybrid and am enjoying it. I don't plan to play any more matches with it- probably going to put it away for some hitting sessions and that's about it. So now after having had the chance to hit for a full week with this thing I've come to the conclusion that yes they are nice.... $300+ nice... not so much! A frame is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it and while I do like this frame, there is no chance in the world I am going to fork out $300+ for a back-up or extra frame when my current APDGTs or any other retail sticks work just fine. I was a 4.0 player before I got this racquet and I'm a 4.0 player with it and I'll be a 4.0 player without it. Bottom line, great frame... yes. Game changing frame... no. Anyone who forks out $300+ for this frame needs their head examined. No racquet is worth that much money! I'd take the $300+ that you bone heads are spending and go get coach or a mental exam!
