    Is he even sponsored? I think hes not a sponsored head guy anymore, therefore he is using old rackets from when he was sponsored. Its strange though, considering low ranked pros and even college players are walking around with Pt57As with the newest paint

    He could be very picky? I remember last year at the French Open the current Babolat Pure Drive users refused to use the special edition RG red colourway because they were not used to having that red in there peripheral vision as they swung the racquet.

    But what clues me is that the PJ isn't all that different, Yes the Orange is a tad more vibrant but you would think it would not make that much difference.

    I thought the i radicals were based off that pro tour 630 mold anyway - maybe it was the earlier radicals that I'm thinking of?

    No, the i.Radical MP is not the same mold as the Pro Tour 630. The Radical Tour 630 (Radical Tour 260 MP) and Radical Tour TwinTube 630 used the SAME mold as the Pro Tour 630 (280).

    Screw the paintjob, look at the solid amount of lead at 3/9 and the leather with tourna!
