View Full Version : Youtek Radical MP quick question!

so i just noticed this and it seemed kind of odd. The prestige frames have a 'flat' beam so the word 'Head' painted at 4 and 10oclock can be read easily. but on the radical mp, the beam is tapered so that you can't read the 'Head' word. is that just to distinguish the radical line from the prestige collection further?

I think that the molds are designed for performance characteristics of the frame. The cosmetics already do a good job at allowing you to tell whether a racquet is a radical, prestige, speed or instinct.

Radical is Orange and Prestige is Red...that's all you really need to distinguish the two lines on a visual level.

The shape of the frame is more for how it performs.

thanks for the input. i guess another question is did head make 2 batches of the youtek radical? because i recall them having a matte painjob finish but the one i have is all glossy. were there 2 batches???

Youtek Radical has been around for what, three years? There have been several variations on the K-Factor 90 with different decals or other minor differences so I don't see why Head couldn't do the same thing.

makes sense. so if the first batch matte, then later on glossy? which kind do you have?

The YT Radical Lite OS had a matte finish - perhaps you saw one of those?

I got one Summer 2011 and one Fall 2011.

In the video review, Kana says that it's different from the other YT Radicals in that it has a matte finish.
