I was extremely pleased by the playability and maneuverability of the Head YouTek IG Prestige S. My forehand and backhand swing felt smooth and effortless, and I was able to generate tremendous power without sacrificing control. This is a great frame for players looking to mix up their game style, and become more creative.
