    Hey guys. This site has some actual live shots of the new YouTek Radical OS and they also included the entire Head 09 catalogue with images of the Speeds, Radicals and the matching bags. Check out. It looks cool to me. Most of the stuff people have been saying here are right like usual. Their site says Speed available April 28 and Radical June 15.

    I posted a zoomed in one a few days ago. There are a few Youtek threads around you can search and will find a lot more interesting stuff about these frames!

    Good find, is April 28 the release date in US then? It has been confirmed by some Head reps that the Speed line will be officially launched at Monte Carlo Masters. (in one week's time!!)

    I am seeing demo's in some of the pro shops. Had the chance over the weekend to hit with Speed Pro and Rad Pro. Liked the rad more.

    why you prefer the rad? main difference i can see is that it's lighter.

    Is it just me or is the background of the racquets in the pic above a copy of the wilson background with a red storm theme instead of blue storm theme.

    nope...only on the MP, what a shame i agree. i wouldn't mind but the MP is 100sq prefer 98 and it could be a tad heavier.

    My head rep came in today and had all of these. Didn't get to hit with them and they won't be available in the U.S. until first week of May. He did confirm that everyone will use the new PJ starting next week.

    Biggest thing I liked which I haven't seen posted anywhere on this site yet is that they finally changed the pallet shape on the handles to a wilson handle shape. All of the frames have this and I love it, I hated the boxy shape on the old frames.

    Only the Pro will adopt the new pallet as a standard to my knowledge...we've changed the grip to a demo MP and it has the usual TS82 pallet...the one in use on my former Prestige Pro

    They widened the hoop at the bottom and I think it is slighty stiffer than the previous though that also could have been the strings. I had a very solid feel, the one I hit with was 16X19 and thought they also have an 18X19.

    I don't understand why you posted this thread. I currently have two threads about the new Head racquets, and there are many other threads where the catalogue and the hands-on pictures were already posted. Here are the links to my threads:

    I reckon mid year but that's a guess because any shop owner I've spoken to so far doesn't know anything about it yet... hope somethign comes through before that...

    hey matty,

    i have been informed at my local tennis store, that the new head models will be in next month.apparently the radicals

    tennis only have a small range of racquets, though they exclusively stock current pro apparel

    i live in perth, how long are you in the city for?

    Just delete the three dots and fill in "ad" before the dash to spell head and the link will take you there.
