View Full Version : Nole's weapon of choice

Pardon me for my ignorance for not searching previous threads, I am just wondering which is the closest thing to Noles weapon of choice out there: PT57A, head liquidmetal radical tour, head youtek radical mp, or the speed mp as advertised.

It looks to me his racket head size is more 98 than 100, and beam width of 21-22mm, and soft flex, standard length. This is somewhat in line with a customed youtek radical mp.

What do you think?

The closest you could buy in my opinion is the Microgel Radical MP. At least the mold would be correct. It is a regular Radical MP Mold with Nole's own layup.

Check out the beam width and the head shape. It has nothing to do with the Speed line. It is pure Radical MP (not YouTek Radical MP the mold was changed slightly).

It's not a Speed MP but it has the very nice cosmetics of one and it weighs:360g, balance of 32cm, Swing weight of 371, and with a Flex of 51 RA.

Flex of 51 is much lower than any retail head sticks. Just amazing how djokovic gets to every ball with good pace and even sharp angles with his stick.

I could see that his beam is flat like the microgel radical than curvy as in the youtek. But in the above pictures, the beam width looks pretty thick, maybe just visual effect

What is the beam width?

Beam width is the thickness of the frame, for example, federer tour 90 beam width is 17 mm, while most head prestiges are 21 mm, babolats are a little thicker 22-25 mm

Agreed, but it's the same with Rafa fans, too. Pros definitely move product, for better or for worse.

Good thing the IG Speed is still a good stick, even if Djokovic doesn't actually use it.

It's not a Speed Pro either. The Beam is too wide, head is too oval (The Speed Pro is round like the old T2000), and it has a 18x20 string pattern. It is the Radical MP mold.

The beam is huge, no way is it a speed. Speed's are soo god damn stiff though.

Interestingly, Leif Shiras said djokovic switched racquets at the start of this year. I'm guessing hes just Ill informed and Djokovic just switched to the IG PJ?

Is Nole still playing full bed of technifiber biphase? Or has he gone to hybrid already? Looks like his shots have quite some margin over the net, even the flat one (cross court fh) has tremendous spin

It has to be the microgel Radical MP. It just has to.

TheOC
04-03-2011, 05:47 PM
If you notice the bridge is the same width as the rest of the frame. Microgel and Youtek radicals have a bridge that gets slimmer as it goes towards the middle main strings. He's most likely not using a liquidmetal radical tour as it doesn't have the liquidmetal bumps, however he might be using an old model of the radical tour. Most likely a custom make up with the old radical tour mold

Isn't that the spec from last year?

Darren cahill commented that he switched to his old specs, which is lighter, thus allowing him to go back to his old service motion.

Consensus or not -- the fact is that the mold is from the old Radical Tour that he used, flex is 51 and the weight and balance is not completely known since he added the lead strips inside the hoop. The grip is 4 3/8 + 2 overgrips.

It's not a Radical Tour Mold. The Old Radical Tour mold (Radical Tour 630 and Radical Tour TwinTube 630) were the same as the Pro Tour 630 (PT57A). The Mold changed for the Radical MP Line in 1999 with the Ti.Radical MP. The Radical MP MOLD has changed again wit the YT Radical MP Mold.

Djokovic's frame is off of the Radical MP Mold. Frames frome the Ti.Radical, i.Radical, and MG Radical Mold.

In Europe the same racquet (Radical Trisys 260 MP) was called the Radical Tour 630. The Pro Tour 630 was also from the Same mold as the Radical Trisys 260 MP (Radical Tour 630).

Nole's frame is not from that Radical Trisys 260 MP (Radical Tour 630). HEAD changed the Radical MP Mold in 1999 with the Ti.Radical MP. Nole is using a frame from the "Newer" Radical MP mold. But not the YT Radical MP mold.

BDAZ
04-07-2011, 08:14 PM
i think when people say "radical tour" mold, they actually mean "liquidmetal radical tour" mold, as this is what he previously used from head before he went to wilson. not that i'm an expert by any means, but i believe vs is correct that the mold is the same as the ti. through microgel radicals.

Beam width is the thickness of the frame, for example, federer tour 90 beam width is 17 mm, while most head prestiges are 21 mm, babolats are a little thicker 22-25 mm

He knows what Beam Width means, he wanted to know what thickness it was.

It does look fairly thick, Like a 22mm

The beam design is the same. Also AFAIK HEAD had origianlly said they both were 20mm beams back in the day.

^^^ Aside from the fact that I played with the Trysis back in the day, I also had a stack of those frames directly behind my desk during the 2 years I worked with Bosworth. You didn't even need to use a digital caliper to see the difference between that racquet's beam and the PT 630. It was obvious to the naked eye. Trysis was ~22mm.

I disagree with you. I had back in the day the Radical Trisys 260 and the Pro Tour 280 MP. I still have a Radical Tour TwinTube 630 and several Pro Tour 280/630 and they are the same mold as the Radical Trisys 260 MP. The Pro Tour 280, the Radical Trisys 260, and Radical Tour TwinTube 630 all took the same orginal traditional style grommets. I will get the package for you when I locate them and post photos. The Radical Trisys 260 and the Radical Tour were not 22mm. I think you are confusing the Radical Trisys 260 MP and Oversize beam widths. Because the Oversize was wider.

From my 1994 HEAD catalog:
Radical Trisys 260:

Head Size
Midplus: 97 sq.in.
Oversize: 107sq.in.

Cross Section
Midplus: 20mm
Oversize: 21mm

Weight: Unstrung
Midplus: 11.4 oz.
Oversize: 11.3 oz.

Balance
Midplus: 315mm
Oversize: 315 mm

String Pattern
Midplus: 18/20
Oversize: 18/19

Grip Sizes
1-5



HEAD redesigned the Radical MP MOLD for 1999. HEAD made the Ti.Radical MP beam wider than the Original.

First of all VS, you shouldn't believe everything you read. When Donnay introduced new frames last year for example, they tried telling us the racquets were all 15mm straight beams, which of course they weren't.

In fact, a typical PT 630 doesn't even have a 20mm constant beam. Those frames are ~20mm in the head, ~20.5mm in the middle of the throat, and ~21mm at the base of the throat.

Additionally, just because I mentioned that you don't need to measure the racquets to see the difference in beam doesn't mean that I haven't measured them. I just looked up an old email that I wrote to a friend last year. He had specifically asked about the beam of several models, so I measured them and told him exactly what the electronic digital guage read. There is ~ 1.5mm difference between the two frames in question, FYI.

And no, I was not referring to the OS!

The Pro Tour 630 and the Radical Trisys MP is the same mold. You can't see a difference with the naked eye. From HEAD, when new from the factory they were they were fitted with the exact same TK grommets number. They take the same TK57 C.A.P grommets the same way. No Mod, no forcing, and they have the same grommet channel design. They slide right in perfectly.

Its a nice added touch if a pro "uses" your stick of choice. I love the YT IG Speed MP 18x20 just fits my playing style. It feels kinda cool when the #1 player endorses your stick.

However, I see 3.0 players buying Tour 90s and I shake my head when they complain that its the racquet and such. There are some pros and cons

VS BABOLAT is MG RADICAL MP MOLD, then I believe that at 100 %.

It's an older Radical mold, i think the Microgel Rad has a tapered bridge...

After watching many matches and examining close-up pictures, I'm fairly certain Djokovic is using a custom frame made from the Ti.Radical MP mold.

To me it looks larger than 100sq.in...., but it could be the 'white'..... definately a custom rad mold.

what's the difference between his racket and the ig? obviously the ugly stop-sign racket isn't his but the ig and his so called pj look relatively the same. i just don't see the difference really, is it in the throat or something?

Beam, Head shape, throat area from outside.
flex and much more specs-wise

I look at that, then look at the djoko pic in this thread. I'm not seeing it. Of course, i wouldn't see weight, sw, etc etc. buuuut the shape etc, i don't notice the differences.

i don't own a ig, nor want one. i just don't see what you all are seeing.

Definitely the beam width, the head is elongated just like the old Radical Tour and not rounded like the Speed...

Djokovic is not using the Radical Tour 630 MOLD. Djokovic's frames are from the same MOLD as the Ti. Radical MP, i.Radical MP, and MG Radical MP. The Radical Tour 630 used the same mold as the Pro Tour 630.

Hmmm, i'll take good note of that, i've been thinking for a long time that it was the Rad 630 mold. Makes sense because otherwise it would just be a PT57A with a different layup i guess?

What y'all know about these frames is simultaneously amazing and terrifying. Not to mention the litigious nature and unchecked hostility of a select few of you. Wow. It's a crazy world, innit?

He did use the LiquidMetal Radical MP. The Ti.Radical MP, i.Radical MP, and MG Radical Mp is the same mold only without the Liquidmetal ridges. Djokovic's Frame is from the Ti.Radical MP, i.Radical MP, and MG Radical MP mold with his own personal layup.

What Fedace has over 20,000 posts on this forum and he doesn't know Djokovic doesn't really use the Speed MP?

He always plays dumb. Real cool/funny huh?
