    Ok I played with the yellow 99, Dark red 94, and black 99 today.
    YELLOW 99:
    I strung the yellow 99 today with the sample tourna blue from TW at 63 16x19 pattern(I knew it was going to be a softer string so I accounted for that, as a reference I string my PT57's at 61lbs)

    I was surprised by the yellow, it reminded me of when I used to play with the original radical OS (which keep in mind, is what agassi played with through out his career after signing with head) Ofcourse it could have just been the color ;-)
    Though I usually play with a smaller head, heavier racket, I thought "wow I can acutally play with this!"
    I guess this would be more for the type of player that has a more whipy stroke, as I was using more wrist with it, but I adjusted quickly. actually it kind of scared me, I thought "maybe I should go to a lighter stiffer racket.... nahhhhh"
    It felt solid, with great control. Id have to put this racket in the range of the POG OS, Pro one OS, OG Rad trysis 270 OS, it definately has a more old school feel, almost like a K90, if they made it in a 99 but a little lighter. If you have solid strokes I think youll love it.
    but at the same time the feel was unique too, plenty of power but it didnt feel harsh, didnt need a dampner. Felt really connected to the ball.

    Fig, can you try putting on all of the weights and trying the yellow again?

    I mean the 10g buttcap, the side slides, and the tip slide.

    Thanks for sharing!

    the headguard grommet looks weird, we can't see the string and it seems an evolution of the CAP... how does it work?
