    I was able to get 4 intelligence radical paint of what are supposed to be PT57A and are in XL format about 28 inches long and there are no specs or code written inside the throat and is simply just blank.

    My first question is did intelligence raidcal ever make XL? As far as I know they did not because someone told me that they did make intelligence radicals without any printing in the throat if someone can clarify that?

    And my second question is were TGK produced back then when the intelligence paint was out or was it only PT57A and PT57E type of pro stock frames?

    Anyway I am not exactly sure if these are legit PT57A so I would appreciate anyone that might know anything about these as they are supposed to be pretty rare in this paint job?

    You could post some pictures, that would help. Some overall shots, some shots around the throat, and especially the grommet channels ends.

    Best way to know for sure is probably going to be to pull off the grip and pallet and see what you find under the pallet.

    From my limited knowledge:
    I don't recall there ever being a 28" XL I.Radical, just MP and OS. However, there are ways to extend standard rackets, so you would have to check to make sure the racket is really that long and doesn't just have an extension under the pallet.

    I don't think I've ever seen a TGK in paint older than the Microgel generation. Seems like any prostocks from liquid metal, flexpoint, intelligence, or older, had the PT series labels.

    For sure others on here will have more info.

    You're probably better off asking in the string forums or the pro racquet forum here.

    I have seen extenders on retail frames sold as pro stocks before.
