    Anyone else notice the distinct microgel grommets on his youtek or is it just me? I knew he didn't use youtek but I thought he used a prostock racket rather then real microgel when he played with it before youtek came out.

    I think he uses TGK231.3. That would be Radical MP with different drilling, balance and weight (cca.350g strung)

    Could you elaborate bob? What material is the TGK? Because you can clearly see the microgel grommet system.

    It SHOULD be 100% graphite without any d3o, microgel, liquidmetal, holes etc.
    However, nobody really knows for sure. It has not been forensically proven if you know what I mean :)

    Cool, thanks bro. Nothing like bumping 6-month-old-plus threads to reiterate something for the fourth time.

    Back on topic, I should be getting one of Cilic's frames (Youtek PJ, used at Wimbledon) quite soon. I'll post pics, specs, reviews, etc...
