    Sorry, I just noticed but is it true that Murray is still playing with i.Prestige or it's PJ of some sort :)?

    It's a very interesting choice, dont u think? It's a very light racquet even for mods :confused:
    I wonder what would he be playing with if Head signed him up with a big contract?

    It has alot of lead on it too, I have heard his frame is one of the heaviest around.

    I suppose the i.radical was what Andy used in his early teens and it's what he is comfortable with. We all know pro's don't like to change what has got them to where they are, I guess Murray is another example.

    I heard that Murray has A LOT of lead under the bumper guard. I don't know if he has some at the handle.

    lol i'm willing to bet he will stick with the i.radical for the time being, maybe a new pj but even that i'm unconvinced on.

    My prediction: a new frame anytime by next Wimbledon.

    I.Radical very nice frame, another frame, i would have bought if it came in extral long version. If HEAD gave andy big time contract, he will switch to Flexpoint Radical Tour. Perfect transition.............

    Not necessarily, he's probably used it for a while and doesn't want to change. What makes a frame better?

    We have a post, a person has his racket that was from the cincy or what ever tournmanet where he was smashing the living **** out of the racket by his chair.

    There was gobs of lead under the caps, and I am assuming this is why he puts caps on the Radcal is to hide all the lead. AM uses one of the highest SW on the tour
