    The graphic scheme is close to Speed Pro series with a deep orange color.
    It comes with a leather grip.The head size looks like 100 sq inches
    No spec coming out yet.

    I hope they will bring out a Radical MP with 16x19... just like the Prestige Pro..

    don't like the all, deep orange pj. reminds me too much of the look of the flexpoint rad.

    It looks like this one is 16 x 19. Apparently they listened to your request.

    Gone is the Microgel it would appear, similar to flexpoints. Or perhaps not?

    Seems to have some new technology anyhow judging by the "Tek" label on the 5 O'clock on the head

    HEAD does make a MG Radical MP 98 in 16x19 for the Pros on Tour ONLY. Donald Young had been using it.

    Could that just be a PJ instead of a MG radical. The beam also looks squared off too and the radical isn't like that. I bet thats just a PJ

    Nope sorry you're wrong. The code in the throat is TGK231.3. The TGK321 indicates that it is MG Radical MP 98. The .3 in the code signifies what variant it is.

    the paintjob on the racquet makes it look like one of those racquets you get from big 5 or wal-mart

    it's strange that this radical pro comes with a leather grip while the prestiges haven't had a leather grip in quite some time.

    im just really disapointed that they never showed the new head prestige
    i mean thats one of there best rackets and there not showing it to us
    oh well save the best for last i guess thats what there going to do
    but its still kinda disappointing

    Murray has been using a PJ on a 98 frame as well. Most assume it's really a Prestige Pro.
