    I mean, yeah the Youtek thing worked on its own. Im a bit skeptical however, about this stuff in a racquet...

    It looks like the special material in YouTek is "d30"

    The promo guy says "It (d30) is actually able to adapt depending on the shot you hit"

    i think hes wearing his normal barricade v black/silver but he's wearing a different top, probably a training one which he doesnt play in for matches, so it's not a new one he'll be wearing.

    I wish they didn't have to use that corny song. Takes the presentation down a couple notches, especially when they have lyrics flying at you.

    What a dumb name for a racquet line. Why didn't they just call it D30 or something? Racquet freaks love that alphanumeric naming crap. I'd like to meet the marketing genius behind that gem.

    the head rep had them at our club for demo. the new speeds hit well.. i also liked the new radical. both are significantly more flexible than the frames in the microgel lines though

    Hey Kal-el you like the new d3o Rad MP or the Pro?

    Given what you rated the Pro above the MP here's what you wrote about the MG Rad Pro you think they may rob the Pro of any power given that is was only a little more than the MP??? That is, if they make it too flexy it may become limp noodle...

    I tried out the MG Pro today and found it had way way way more power than the MG Rad MP - just night and day. Loved it too../
