    As Schweid notes here (see diet plan, halfway down the link), Ferrero's Prince OS Longbody was customized to be lighter than the off-the-rack version. I wonder if this is the case with his flexpoint - I would think so, since if he swung an 11 oz. 28 in Prince, he wouldn't want to go up an ounce with the Head since we saw from Pacific Life TW photos it is also 28 in. http://tennis.com/ME2/dirmod.asp?si...91&tier=4&id=17D578DBBD85453D8B67390548025EDA

    I dont think he plays lighter I think he plays heavier. And I read somewhere that he said he switched to head because he feels head has more power that he needs for his game but his flexpoint radical tour is customized to the same specs as his POG LB.

    Since in August 2004 Schweid, who would know, says Ferrero was using "11 oz. or even less" and POG LB is 11.9 stock, that is appreciably lighter.

    Are there any specs on the FP Radical Tour that Ferrero is using?

    For sure it's 28 inches long. And as far as I know 100 sq in and 16 main strings (that's the "Tour" version of the Radical Flexpoint which sill be issued a bit later).
