    Anyone remembers this frame? I picked it up recently and can't find any specs for it. It has constant beam, looks and feels very solid like PT 630/660 but head heavy like a Wilson Hammer.

    Also, what were the other interesting Head Ti frames? Thanks.

    They sold for $40 retail. I bought one off Fleabay for about $25 when the frame was being touted on these boards as a 102 inch Head Radical.

    I liked it with some judicious lead tape added under the grip and a bit on the hoop too. I had no real reason to not stay with the stick other than it wasn't a sexy model. I goofed around for a while stringing it with 15L Pro Form Tuff at a very low tension like 50lbs.

    Strangely, it feels much heavier than 11 oz and I wouldn't call it flexible ... it's a bit heavier than my Radical and pretty much as stiff. :confused:

    Try weighing it. The QC on these wasn't that consistent and there were a few reports on the boards about spec variance.
