Can anyone inform me of how he could have gotten it...AND it WASNT a PJ I saw the racket up close in the proshop where he had the other one getting restrung... :mrgreen:

Federer0580,
I hit with the MP last night for 5 sets and have the OS right now. Next week
I am hoping to hit with the TOUR version. But to answer your question, it is someone who knows one of the HEAD reps.

wao,
How did you like the Flexpoint Radical MP and OS? How do they compare with your LM Prestige MP, and with the LM Radical MP, if you've tried it?

Breakpoint,


"How did you like the Flexpoint Radical MP"
It was a little lighter than I would normaly like, but hit very solid from the back court. Was able to generate quite a bit of topspin even with the 18X20
string pattern. It felt not as stiff as the LM Rad or prestige. I had to put a little more punch on my volleys, but I need to do that anyway. I would say a
very easy racquet to like. I have not hit with the OS yet, tonight.

"How do they compare with your LM Prestige MP"
I could easily switch, as much control with more pop. Again I would add some weight.

All around it felt good. I will let you know how the OS and TUOR versions are if you are intrested.

wao,
Thanks for the feedback on the Flexpoint Radical MP.

Yes, please also give us some feedback on the OS and Tour versions. BTW, do the Flexpoint Radical MP and Tour have the same weight, balance, and swingweight as the LM Radical MP and Tour, respectively?

Thanks.

Wao, do you think you can help me get in touch with a Head rep? I need some PC600 pallets in 4 1/4. Please email me at sallay at gmail dot com. Greatly appreciated, thanks

He probably got them through Tennis Warehouse. :-)

Seriously, the Tennis Warehouse tent at the Pacific Life Open has all the released Head Flexpoint racquets, along with the new Yonex Nano Bot racquets (uhh, that doesn't sound right -- I shoulda written the name down, I guess).

I was hitting with these racquets nearly three weeks ago, and my coach has had them for god knows how long. He's pretty high up in Head, so that's probably how that other fellow got a hold of it. If you look up, you'll see my thread, as the first to be made on the subject.

If TW has them in their possession, I would like to see the RDC specs posted as soon as possbile. Curious to see how the holes at 3 & 9 effect the flex rating.

Just hit with the Oversize and the MP Tour today.... The Oversize felt incredible!! Felt exactly like advertised... actually pockets the ball. Felt stiffer than TENNIS magazines "Flexible" rating. Somewhat similar feel to the Liquidmetal Radical but overall I liked the Flexpoint better. I thought the MP Tour would feel better than it did! The new 100 sq. inch head and open string pattern was a nice addition... but the overall feel of the tour wasn't as nice. Of course it was factory strung, and I didn't have the opportunity for any customizing... I noticed that there was already a Flexpoint MP tour on **** for sale... They must have gotten one at the Pacific Life Head Tent!

It should not affect the flex rating since it is measured at the throat of the racquet... :)

They don't have 'm, they won't have 'm untill may!!!
And they want 169,- for them, that's like 230 US bucks.
I might order them from the US.
See what price ********* is going to sell 'm for.
The LM Radicals are only 99 us bucks at *********, great price!!!
Ah I see, TW don't want me to advertise for better deals on the internet:-)

why is it that TW has had these racquets in stock for weeks, they are available all around the world, but Head won't let them out here in the US? makes no sense.

Mine are on their way from Head. I've got two coming with a super combi racquet bag. I can't wait! Should be a couple of weeks. I will let you guys know when I get it how it feels.


If you guys didn't happen t know there are three different versions of this racquet! Later

1. Mid-Plus - 27"
2. Mid-Plus Tour - 27"/ heavier stick/ Juan Carlos Ferrero
3. Oversize - Andre Agassi

I purchased mine through Tennis Warehouse. I didn't like the Flexpoint Tour as much as I thought I would. It is nothing like the previous LM tour -- seems much less stable and harder to control. Perhaps it just needs more weight as it is about an oz. lighter. Any suggestions out there as where to apply the weight? I was thinking at 3/9 but that is also where the supposed flexpoints are.
