    During Peng's match against suarez navarro, she used a head racket that resembled microgel prestige or radical, except it was green. Anyone know if it's just a paintjob or a new racket?

    Thats a cool custom pj. Extremes are yellow. Unless Head is going to sell a new green microgel, thats a custom pj.

    Basing the fact that the Flexpoint Heat was green, I assume She is playing with the new Microgel Heat.

    I think the green looks good. I wouldn't mind a new racket from head to get away from that crossbow racket.

    the throat is shaped differently than the extreme.
    i think it may be a microgel heat

    Yeah, but the flexpoint heat had the bridge/stabilizer bar in the throat.

    it looks like a piece of candy. anyway the microgel mojo replaced the flexpoint heat. crossbar, same weight, balance, beam width, and string pattern.
    i think it might be a radical pro with a custom pj.

    I'm not really even clear on whether she has an endorsement. she has been playing blackout frames for a while before this... if she's not endorsing head then maybe she just had her racquets painted a color she liked?

    guys, NONE of the microgels have a throat like that, if its not a heat, then its most likely a new line that head is just introducing now
