    IF you're referring to the CAP Grommets - that proves nothing, as many posters on these boards (and players who don't post on these boards) replace the stock Radical grommets with CAP grommets.

    IF you're referring to the color - that's definitely orange, and therefore a Radical paintjob.

    He's likely using the PT57 something painted like a Radical.

    What can we expect from a little kid who barely even attempts to use proper English.

    Please good sir, I advise that you start typing somewhat scholarly if you want to survive here.

    Yes, I am fairly certain he uses the prestige pro, the previous generation radical did not have a full bumper, and when you look at his pictures his did. Also, the previous generation radical was only made with an 18x20 string pattern, and I counted his and it was 16/19. The only racquets head offered with their microgel lineup was the extreme and the prestige pro, so it was definitely the prestige pro.

    The radical pro in the MG lineup used a 16x19. I'm sorry i know he uses a prestige pro, i'm just confused by your last statement.

    Yes, the YOUTEK radical pro uses a 16x19, but the microgel did not offer a radical pro, just the radical, and it was 18x20. This was about 6 months ago when the youtek line was not out yet, and this is what I was referring to. His racquet then was 16x19 and they claimed he was using a radical, well they did not make a 16x19 radical then...

    Yikes! That was very ignorant of me :(. I apologize, I did not think they made a microgel radical pro, sorry about that.

    No worries, you could probably teach me a thing or two on court anyways.

    Is this Thread really necessary? I think it must be Thread number 1,394 on what racket does Andy Murray use! Any danger of anyone using the search function? It's not that tough....

    Well you're correct, he uses a PT57 with a 16x19 drilling pattern. He doesn't use a Prestige or a Radical, only the paint. If I had a Yonex, and painted it like a Prestige would you think it was?

    Don't give them fuel. Let them discover the Search function! It's an incredible tool...

    I even posted pics of Murray's bats that he was practicing with before he went to Australia. SEARCH IT and it will tell you everything you could want to know about his rackets for the Ausy Open.

    any idea on that "heavy Spec" sticker inside the throat?

    seen it once before on a newspaper article before the Aus Open.

    I don't know about this actually. But it's been on his rackets for a while now, he still has the stickers on. I will try and see if i can find out what they mean.
