Discussion in 'Racquets' started by Adidas_Anderson, Aug 18, 2011.
Saw that on a fb friend page...
Coming out on December of 2012?
The last pictures were removed due to commercial pressure to 'not spoil the launch'.
Nice PJ, very nice!
December 2012? Seriously?!?
I thought they were going to be released in January
Unveiled in December, released in January no doubt.
I don't like the white caps but easily fixed.
LOL, so why some countries have it before, for example a member from Sweden took pictures of the real rackets.
BTW what a bunch of ugly rackets, HEAD is definitely hitting the bottom, not only with the design and quality, but now with the paint jobs as well.
I see so many people complaining about HEAD rackets but yet they still keep playing with them, it is just like the story a wife that keeps complaining about the drunk husband abusing her, but she is yet to live him, it just doesn;t make any sense.
Radical as well :S
ooooooooo radicals look awesome. just in time.. i was getting extremely sick of my ytk radical mp painjob .
Radicals should come CAPed
you can install the caps yourself
They removed my pics, chances are that they'll remove these too...
Also Buckethead, they look great in person!
As I said to Obama, no we can't. And a racquet technician costs a bit.
I know that you can but rather than put out lite versions they should put a CAPed version. Thats just what i think
U saw from kwong's fb
I'm pretty sure they new ones are going to be capped. Look at the picture of the radical. It looks like it has clear CAPs all the way around.
no thats just the new IG grommets, the instinct and the speeds have the same clear grommet strip which im guessing is the new 'technology' replacing white teflon grommets
The white CAPs on the Prestige look whack!
I know that the speeds have the normal clear grommets, but I recall someone posting real life pics of the new prestiges and radicals from Sweden I believe that showed the radical pro having CAPs similar to the i.prestige caps.
I went through my pics and yes, YTIGRP has caps. Head is probably initiating a lawsuit against me...
any XL version?
The Radical Pro will definitely have CAPS
nice radical pj , when it will be released??
Are those 18x20s in those pics???...cant quite make it out...(old eyes,....bifocals,..)
You are nothing but a troll that has absolutely nothing to contribute.
CAP grommets are easy to install and no need to pay someone. You just need to know what you are doing.
Don't worry. There is another thread where someone posted the 2012 catalog.
Paint job seems similar to the you tek model almost. I thought it would be different like what the speed, extreme and instinct did.
So I can't say that the rackets are ugly as hell, because that offends you?
That is beyond ludicrous man, I have the right and will always say what I think, I'm just pretty blunt whether you like it or not, and I do think HEAD rackets on the market are some of the worse ones in quality, quality control, design and what not. It is not because I'm playing with Yonex I'm saying it, because there are other that are also better than HEAD, sorry, but not really.
FYI I play with ugly rackets with the exception of one, I don't care, however all head rackets out there 2011 are ugly as hell, that is what I think, and I don't care what you think.
Paint wise I have put lead on my rackets, taken off, put again in several places and the paint never came off.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
It is the complete B.S. you write about quality, quality control and what not. You are talking out of your depth. I have never had paint come off of my HEAD frames.
I really wish they would go back to a iRadical mold, I hate the beam shape of the YTK Rads. A IG RadPro 95sqin iRad mold would be the ultimate customization platform. If I could find some PT57a's with a 16x19 that haven't already been customized I would actually shell out the obscene amount of $.
Seems to me instead of making "team" or "S" versions they should just release the retail Prestiges and Rads in pro stock weights and balance in addition to the normal retail versions. Seems it would satisfy those looking for lighter weight stock versions as well as those looking for ultimate customizability.
Anyone wanna give me a link to these pics from Sweden?
Its not all about looks
i want so see live pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Send me an email.
I'd really like to get my hands on those pics! Not sure I'll be gettin the new Prestige though... Looks a little.... not so good...
Nice PJ ?? This is exact same PJ they have been using for eons. very boring. Lets mix in some Neon and Purple in there.
Would you ask the sun not to shine, or the wind not to blow?
I HATE the clear caps... They take away that look that the Prestige had.
I agree. For prestige, I prefer 100% ferrari red with black caps. they should have prestige "classic" or something...
Hold on .....
was that a mistake on release of the prestiges
he means to say release december 2011....right?
Anyone know an exact date
You mean, this isn't a Big 5 racquet with an odd looking orange grip?
If anyone in New York wants to playtest these early, they have demos (but not for sale) available at ****. With the requirement that you post your findings here, of course.
