The graphic scheme is close to Speed Pro series with a deep orange color.
It comes with a leather grip.The head size looks like 100 sq inches
No spec coming out yet.

I hope they will bring out a Radical MP with 16x19... just like the Prestige Pro..

don't like the all, deep orange pj. reminds me too much of the look of the flexpoint rad.

It looks like this one is 16 x 19. Apparently they listened to your request.

Well... if they made the headsize 98" they did, but it doesn't appear that way if I understand correctly..

Gone is the Microgel it would appear, similar to flexpoints. Or perhaps not?

Seems to have some new technology anyhow judging by the "Tek" label on the 5 O'clock on the head

HEAD does make a MG Radical MP 98 in 16x19 for the Pros on Tour ONLY. Donald Young had been using it.

Could that just be a PJ instead of a MG radical. The beam also looks squared off too and the radical isn't like that. I bet thats just a PJ

Nope sorry you're wrong. The code in the throat is TGK231.3. The TGK321 indicates that it is MG Radical MP 98. The .3 in the code signifies what variant it is.

the paintjob on the racquet makes it look like one of those racquets you get from big 5 or wal-mart

Is that a genuine leather grip I spot on there?

it's strange that this radical pro comes with a leather grip while the prestiges haven't had a leather grip in quite some time.

What other head racquets are getting makeovers, and/ or new models coming out this year?

Murray has been using a PJ on a 98 frame as well. Most assume it's really a Prestige Pro.
