    Great info NikeUp! Would you happen to know the weight, swingweight, balance and flex of the racquet? It'd be awesome to know its specs. Thanks!

    What did you string them with and at what tension. I'd hit the search button but since you just strung them today I figured I go straight to the source. :)

    I am not sure on which thread, but I remember seeing a video with Andy Murray measuring the balance of his sticks (MGPP PJ) on a tennis court...anybody knows what I talk about?

    He put the racquets on an edge to measure the balance of two racquets and then was hitting with them

    any help?

    NikeUp, can you please tell me what do you mean by "gripped"? I also think about change the Calf skin on Youtek Prestige Pro with a Karakal PU grip, and I don't know how put it. I never changed the original grip on any of my racquets, I change only the overgrip.
    Is there a big difference? Why Andy changes the original ones? I read that Marat was also changing them because of the blisters. The grip is underneath the overgrip, so is that a big difference?

    With the Tourna, I find it very difficult to put, because is much shorter than other overgrips, and I really have to pull hard on them to cover the whole handle. Next time I'll buy Tourna grips XL.

    There is any thread with instructions about changing the original leather grip with a synthetic one?

    Whats the closest rendition to murrays racquet we can obtain? the prestige pro? and is the Prestige Pro's string pattern spaced out just like murrays or even more open? Hopefully not more closed.

    Sorry my man but it's called a Paint Job. This is where the racquet companies take a old frame no longer produced or a custom frame that is not produced for the consumer and put the cosmetics of a current frame they are trying to market or promote. This is a very common practice in the tennis industry.

    You will also notice that Murray's frame is 16x19 string pattern and has C.A.P. System Grommets.

    Welcome to Talk Tennis @ TW!

    P.S. There is no Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, and Tooth Fairy either. Sorry!:twisted::evil:

    They said you are a newbie to the site, since you don't know what pro stock or paint job is. They never said you are newbie to tennis. And keep this up you'll be banned before 5 posts :) .

    I know this is a rather new post to an old thread. But around 2008 Andy Murray bought 10 MicroGel Radical MidPlus 4-1/2 grip from my tennis store. Since this is a Tennis Warehouse site, I don't want to mention the store; but back then we sold over 1000 of these a year and now in 2015 we still sell hundreds.

    And of all places, he went to San Diego to look for them...
    Anyway, maybe for some charity thing, to sign them?

    There's a site, I'm sorry I don't remember, I'll look it up, you can also. It's a company that deals directly with their racquets, and they put up the actual weight, length, etc. I know that sounds flaky, when you see it the credibility will come. I was surprised that over half of the racquets were very close to store model specs. I don't think it's relevant in regards to us, if we find a racquet that works we would have no need for a pro's racquet other than collection. It's my understanding that Fed's racquets are much more head heavy than the released models, whereas they had Nadals specs identical to the one on TW
