    What is the grip size? (it looks sort of small).

    BaselinePlaya, oh definitely! As you can see in the picture the black throat part of the racket is totally glossy and not the matte finish like the store bought version. Also, "i Radical" is not on the outside of the throat either. The throat bevels are exactly like my TwinTube or Trysis 260 Radicals. It totally feels like them! Take care!

    MichaelChang, the racket does not have any indication of the actual grip size but I am willing to bet it is a 4 3/8. I have not actually measured it in real life. It seems like most pros go for the smaller grips! Take care!

    Thanks. 3/8 is probably right.

    Hey Guys,
    An Andre Agassi Radical Ti
    An Aero Pro Drive from Rafa
    A Pure Drive from Moya and a T-series from Jimmy Connors
    The AA frame is my favourite (350 grms unstrung with tourna and an incredible feeling even balance)
    All the best,
    Richard

    I had a custom Slazenger pro braided from Henman, but i sold it.
    I took it for a testdrive but felt very stiff but with great control.

    Richard, hi, as you can see in my previous posts I have the "I Radical" version of the Agassi racket. Can you post any photos of your "TI" version. I am curious if it is that much different. Thanks!

    I'm interested to know what the grip shape is like.

    I'm guessing it's square like Prince since he used to uses the POG. Plus he uses a semi-western grip. Head's grip shape doesn't go well with a semi-western grip.

    Do any of Head's pro players actually use their grip shape?

    I got a racquet that Gonzalez was using at the Montreal tourny 2007... smashed the thing to pieces! After that, he threw another one, but it didn't get ruined...I have that one too. This was all during practice mind you, and no one else was watching him.

    I was making a point. I actually bought mine for $150 (including tax) the second day they came out. Skip along, slappy.

    I doubt he will keep it long anyway. He changes every week now. I guess I should feel flattered. You know what they say about someone emulating another...

    Happened to me once, I made him change it. That when I had the Yonex symbol, which I made. The kid claimed he got it off another forum. Yeah. . .

    Imitation is the sincerest form of plagiarism.

    I remember I came on the boards one day, and like 5 posters all had my avatar. I was like>>>. I don't remember writing that. LOL

    Then I realized they were all messing with me. I think Duzza started it.

    Also have a Fed racquet that was sent to a stringer at the US Open 2004. N-code tour 90 PJ.

    Even 6 months ago, he was claiming to have pictures ready to be uploaded, yet there are still none for us to see. Guess it's time for you to do a search on google! :rolleyes: :lol:
