I’d like to see some of the custom jobs out there! Please attach pics (if available), and details (if known) such as: Mass, SW, Balance, added features, stringing, ETC. Anything that makes you’re frame custom!

Also: any suggestions for other members frames that might help their frame stand out would be nice too!

I’ll start with an I.Radical MidPlus 98 - Here’s what I’ve done so far: I’m going to tune it a little closer to Andy Murray’s custom i.radical specs of a few years back (when time permits)

~TK57 CAP Grommet installed
~350 g strung mass...ALU power 125
~355 SW
~Balance 32.0
~4-1/4 pallet w/silicone injected -Finest Calfskin Leather

I could, but you already have all pictures since I got them from you :)

Joking aside, that is a cool idea for a thread. I will grab my camera now...

Update: Please post pics as you make changes to specs/cosmetics of you're customized frames (no matter how incidental it may appear) It will be interesting to document the process!

* note: updated pics will be added to original post to save space on thread

will you be doing that every overgrip? and string change, and after you use new power pads, and after you chip a small amount of paint? please sir, find something more to do with your time than weighing a racquet after you put an overgrip on, especially when you know that an overgrip wont affect your game in the least bit. I seriously wonder why the hell this is interesting to you or anyone.

Sounds like you've got some nice frames. Have you strung them up yet? Post pics when you get a chance.

Actually not too bad. The customization was $60 and I paid $100 for each racquet because I'm sponsored by babolat. I got the new bag, reel of revenge, 7 racquets, grips so more crap for $825.
