    It was a sibling of the yellow Agassi racket I believe. I hit with it a couple of times and didn't really like it. I would describe it, but I don't know what adjectives I'm permitted to use any more.

    bagung,

    The Satellite Tour was basically a Radical Twin Tube Tour with a different head size. I believe it played a little stiffer than the Radical, but it's been a long time since I played with it. I jut remember it being more or less like the Radicals, just red instead of yellow and only in a 102 head size. Weight wise it's in the player's racket range and probably plays close to the Classic Tour MP that TW used to sell, but with a softer feel to it thanks to the Twin Tube technology.

    I have played the Satellite Tour 102(std length) for 10 years. Its twin-tube, but I've always thought it played like a more flexible Prestige Classic(Trysis 300) that I switched from. I also played the Trysis 260 Radical oversize for 2 seasons(great returns). The Satellite is easier to serve with than the Radical, and my netplay was better than with the Prestige. I string it with 17 ga synthetic multi at 65 lbs. I love the 18 x 19 string pattern. It's ironic that Head brought back the ugly swirl paint scheme. Thats why the Satellite never sold well. All my 4.5 team-mates liked it when they hit with it. The wgt was 11.8 stock, but add overwrap and dampener it gets to 12.3 oz. Great racquet.
