    Anyone know (VS Babolot :) ) which Head Rad or Head pro stock Mina was using against Rafa today. I couldn't get a good look to tell if it was round enough to be a real YT Radical Pro.

    I guess if it was pro stock then it would likely be tgk 231 or 260?

    He seemed to be playing without a bumperguard too

    It was retail frame. I clearly saw specs inside the throat...

    Thanks for the answers, the OS makes sense, as the hoop shape just didn't match up with the Rad Pro.

    I thought it was a much more entertaining match then the score would indicate.

    Tsvetana Pironkova also uses a retail YT Instinct.

    Wow is it really an oversize? What a weird choice of a frame.

    LOL only in these forums do people claim that small heads are good for club players. A guy like Mina is about 1000 times better than anyone here and uses an oversize.

    I agree. Agassi used an oversize. TonLars uses an OS...

    A guy I hit with sometimes is a former touring pro with a couple of titles and he uses the YT Rad OS.

    He can do about anything with it-pin you back on the baseline with heavy top or just slice and dice you to death. It's a nice frame but you don't see many of them anymore.

    Yeah, I don't get it either. Its like people think they look like less of a player if they use an OS and using a mid or midplus makes you look better.

    Completely agree. Same as when Tsonga changed, people speak as if they know better than the player!

    What is the problem with an oversize. I don't use one but if it is what you prefer and feels good to you, why not.
