^^VS, Well spotted, thanks for correction
But is this an actual code: TGK 223.2 and if so what for?
isn't that the PT630 mold (and soft layup) with the FXP holes that don't do anything? I think I have one....
it probably is... it's in the flexpoint prestige PJ. Can you remeber how it played?
Also is it the same as the PT57F that I saw a thread about?
I have to ask dr, how can a hole not do anything?
My question as well. If there are holes there physically, how can they not "do anythng"?
Thanks a lot for the clarification!
It was already time that someone posted just the list of all these Pro Stock frames, for it started to get confusing...
About Jokers raquet, why is it so special that no one has info about it and nobody has layed hands on it?
Of course they do what they do. They are real and the frame is drilled in 2 spots. Furthermore, why would Head use fake holes paintjobs if they do not do anything?
Most likely because the djoker like Fed, Monfils and others don't use the normal tourney stringers so not much chance of a person getting to put the measurements to it. Though Greg raven posted specs on it a few years back but his balance appears to be quite different now with the abundance of lead at 3 and 9.
THe holes question...
If you look at the actual FXP Retail racket and at the PT57F or the 223.2, you will notice that these are different, drilled, then plugged in totally.
Why, and what is behind this idea -- I have no idea...
Im currently trying to find out the difference between TGK 238.2 and TGK 238.3. Mdubb stated 238.3 ist the flexier version. Is that correct? Is this the only difference?
I have 238.2 and it feels pretty flexy.
238.3 has even more flex? :shock:
There are several speculative specs about djoko's frames: 360g, 54RA, etc.
At one point I had the opportunity to purchase some TGKs that were Speed PJ and close to these specs. Would have bought them too if I'd had the financial resources.
I have a blacked out tgk 262.4. 16x19. I have heard of the 262.1,2,3 but the 4? Any ideas?
161 question, anybody seen one under fxp midplus radical paint?
PT10's aren't produced anymore are they? If so, what TGK would come closest to it.
I'd take a punt at the 237 being what you seek
Hi, i´ve got a new one to this collection..
TGK 233.1 on the hairpin and nothing in the throat area.
100 sqin headsize, 16 x 19 and microgel paintjob !
Standard silicone, lead and pro stock buttcap...
350 gram strung.
Do feel free to comment
When new Paint Job Comes out does the code change
Djokovic was using TGK 262.1 With the IG PJ whats the Code
Just my 2c but I read somewhere else that the PT57E is the i.Prestige mold. So I guess that kind of "strengthens" the notion that the PT57E is the i.Prestige? haha
i think the consensus is that Djokovic has never played with a "speed" racquet. for one thing, it isn't shaped liked one. it looks more like a radical midplus mold. and apparently his flex is in the low 50s.
I have a few PTs and bunch of TGKs
i have heard from some guys from head that with the IG series no more code on the throat for the prostock...damn...is it true?
there is one for sale on the stringforum, so, you can ask...
I don't think ANY of the new Head TGK frames show codes...just the retail spec...
4 of my TGK260.2s have no codes, only retail stuff (showing 18x20 pattern), and one has the 260.2 code without any specs (older batch)
2 of the 260.1 I have have only the retail specs...
djoko appartently uses the pt167a...no speed molds...
well.. so please could you tell which racquet djoko uses?
It was mentioned about...ah... 23869547568 times on this board. Maybe click on that "Search" button above?
LM Radical MP Mold, totally custom Layup
Do only Pro Stock frames have codes? Or are they the only ones with codes on the PJ? I changed the pallet on my stock MG Prestige Mid today, and under the pallet on the frame, there was small writing that says TGK237.1 (The 1 may be a T, but I'm not sure..I took a pic and can post later if this isn't normal). Are these codes standard for all frames and just posted to the cosmetics of the pro stock frames, or does the code just indicate which mold is used, regardless of stock/prostock? But, I would think Pro Stock racquets would have a different layup for the same mold, so now I'm confused...
I'm fairly certain this isn't pro stock, so does the codes apply to some stock racquets, too?
All HEAD racquets have engineering codes.
Ok that's what I figured. So the codes are not specific to pro stock frames, just the fact that they make them visible??? And the, any pro-stock-specific layups are something separate from the codes???
The retail MG Prestige mid has the identical TGK237.1 code under the pallets --> same mold.
The latest YT versions of the Pro stock frames have no codes showing inside the throat.
Yep, they layups are usually specified on a sticker under the pallet, too --> code, layup, balance point, hairpin weight.
Any clue as to code for new Speed Youtek Innegra 18x20? Old one was 263.2. New one is?
Great thread. Any one know what the pro stock (code) equivalent is for the prestige pro (16x19)?
YouTek Prestige Pro code is TGK238.5
what an informative thread!!!!!
i think its cool that head makes their rackets so that people can mod the way they want. i.e. pallet interchanging and pro stocks. unlike some companies that foam their grips. i know other companies have pro stock, but all these threads on head makes me want to try these different pro stocks and find my excalibur!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I came across a suspected pro stock racquet with an i.Prestige PJ, but I'm trying to find out what the actual racquet is. Maybe you guys can help me out. It had...
- full CAP (not definitive)
- brown HEAD collar around the throat above the handle
- the upper-part of the throat doesn't have those grooves indicative of an i.Prestige
- the inside of the throat has the code TK19 or TK10 (couldn't really tell the last number)
I'm leaning towards a PC600, but what are your thoughts? Thanks!
Well the only Prestige before the iPrestige is a PC600 so unless went into the future and brought back from IG Prestige Mid's and painted them up as iPrestiges....
No photo with me at the moment, but I'll be sure to put one up when I get the chance.
I hope to have pictures of the aforementioned racquet soon, but I'd like to run this by the TW community..
It appears to be some kind of PC600 extra length. For comparison, I took some pictures with an actual i.Prestige and a PC600. I tried to take the pallet off, but it seemed really cumbersome to do, so I left it alone. I don't think it's pro stock per se, but in doing some research, apparently Ivanesevic used to use the PC600 XL.
What is this racquet exactly?
Helps to have a photo.....
Agree. It looks horrendous, but I can look past it just this once. What kind of paint did Head use?
So if I wanted to buy at TW a racket closest to the Andy Murray racket, which Head racket should it be? Youtek IG Radical Pro MP (98) or the Youtek IG Prestige 98.
Can someone pls comment on this?
Prestige Pro is closest to what Murray is using
Thx sixone90! I'm looking forward to get the Prestige demo tomorrow. I actually used the WPS 60 85 St Vincent for years and recently switched to WPS 95 cuz I wanted to re-learn my two handed backhand.
Any infos on TGK 244.1A?
Separate names with a comma.
