    I have just got my new radicals and before stringing them am thinking of addiding the CAP grommets from the prestige as im told they will fit easily. Is this true? Other than protecting the frame more and looking quite cool, what are the benerfits from having them? Ive seen murray using them when he used the i radical so if you guys can share some info that would be great, also, would you order the MG prestige buffer or any prestige cap? thanks

    I think Chris in Japan put CAPs on his MG Radical- you may want to do a search as I'm alomost positive I saw a picture of them. I'm about to buy a pair myself and would love to CAP mine also!

    It'll add around 20grams, so be careful to counter-balance it. It's really just that.

    Do you still need to know a place to get them in the UK? The Mgel caps fit quite well (A friend of mine did this a couple of months ago)

    Also, might be interessted in a SP. Black (had one earlier and sold it...wouldn't mind getting another)

    i sold them yesterday mate! sorry! i have an account with apollo leisure so i think they will have them. do u think its worth doing? im going to be coaching on hard courts all summer and it would help protect the frame and i need them to be heavier!

    As I said, they do actually fit. Same headsize and pattern...why wouldn't they

    Also, my mate has done this.
