    it will cost u 179.95 to customize your flexpoint to a 100 sq. in. with a 16x19 string pattern that is slightly heavier but a much better frame

    I don't think that's possible, why don't you just get a smaller racket to begin with?

    well i have always sued oversize...i love them cause of the power i obtain with them...i have plenty of cotrol over them! but last week i played with a liquidmetal Fire that has a 102 sq. in. and i loved it....it had too much control though but the feel was good

    Maybe you should try the Flexpoint Tour, it's about as close to the OS as you can get but with a smaller head.

    Because its not like they can shrink the head size with some machine. Unless you can some how cut a peice and some how have the ability to fuse graphite and whatever the crap is in there, and also the string pattern wouldnt be the same anymore if you did that. While your at it... why dont you drill some more holes in there.

    then i think ill change the question to: How much will HEAD charge me to make me a special racuqet with the following specs: Head size: 102 sq.in.
    Weight: 295 grams
    String pattern: 16*18 open string pattern for baseliners.
    Balance: Same as flexpoint OS
    nothing else! anything else missing....get it from the OS

    The tour is only 12.0 ounces strung so it shouldn't be to heavy. I'm 16 and I I love the weight of the tour. Wouldn't mess with a racket under 11.5 ounces.

    12 ounces isn't too heavy, heavier the better imo!

    Babolat seems too ordinary? Au contraire, it's quite different from ordinary.

    I really don't see any problemw ith your getting a FP Tour if you like your current FP Radical because there's no harm in actually using a heavier racquet.

    If you have never tried it... how would you know if you like it or not. Also, what your asking for is completely unreasonable. You could try calling head and asking to customize a racquet just for you, I mean I'm assuming your a top ranked player favored to win the french open and all... so I'm sure they will whip out a racquet to your desired specs and have it shipped for you by tomorrow morning.

    sorry dude, but head isn't going to make you a special racquet. they are into MASS production and they dont take that kind of time for anyone other than pros. try checking out www.vantagetennis.com they make racquets to your exact specs and they play like CRAZY. they're amazing, but they cost $211ish dollars. good luck.
