Hi all, I've been hitting with a Head Flexpoint Radical Team and I've noticed the the string density on this 16 x 19 racquet goes from way open to much more dense from the edge of the fram to the center. Compared to my Head Genesis 600, a 18 x 20, the squares are a little taller on the FXP in the center but look to be the same width. I seem to recall other, more game improvement, racquets I've played with have a more uniform density in the 16 x 19 and thus have larger squares than the FXP.

Is this unusual for a racquet or ordinary? What would be the motivation for this, as opposed to say an ordinary 18 x 20 or 16 x 19? I haven't hit with enough racquets to say it definitively feels 16 x 19 or 18 x 20, although I don't think it is spin cruise control like some of the oversized faces I've hit with.
