    What stick is he using or going to be using. I know there are a ton of threads out there on this but the picture looks interesting on page 8 of Tennis Magazine. It looks to be a radical with the prestige grommet system.

    I'm not sure if it's already been posted but.... does anyone know the specs on Murray's racquets? I know he's playing with a Prestige Pro PJ'ed as a Rad Pro right now.. but has anyone found what the actual specs on his sticks are?

    Prestige Pro and Radical have the same beam widths.

    They are still different molds, though. The shape of the neck is different.

    Does anyone know if the new YouTek Radical Pro is being designed to his specs, or will he just be using another paint job?

    Actually i think the Prestige MP is 1mm slimmer than the radical MP.

    Radical is 21 and Prestige is 20, for some reason they have always been listed the same.

    well the current radical pro has 6 holes at the throat, whereas the new youtek radical pro has 8 holes at the throat same as the prestige pro.

    Is the Prestige really 20mm? You're right that it's listed as a 21.

    Yep, Prestige MP's are 20mm whilst Radical MP's are 21mm, even though they're listed as the same.

    Does Head just measure everything differently with a Prestige for some reason? The head sizes are measured differently too.

    I'm not too sure, i know that head measures all their headsizes from outsizr the frame, so their 93 is in fact closer to 90 and 98 closer to 95, but i'm baffled why they list the radical mp and prestige mp beam width's as the same.

    He, he, he! I guess Head has been reading these forums and know that if they make the new youtek radical pro with 6 holes at the throat like the old Radical Pro, we would be able to spot Murray's PJ easily.:twisted:
