    The headguard/grommet system on his stick reminds me of a Prestige--not Micro Gel. I looked at all the images of the Micro Gels online here at TW and none of them are the same as Soderling's.

    Is he yet another to bust through with a Prestige or PC600 PJ in a new disguise????

    Soderling's racquet is the Pro Tour 630 with a paint job of the new MicroGel Radical MP.

    I really have a hard time understanding why they would give him a radical pj as opposed to a prestige pj since he has cap grommets on his racquet. Head pj's are already the easiest to spot why do they make it even easier, even people who don't know about pj's can spot that.

    The people they are generally marketing these things to probably don't know what a cap grommet system is. If you walk around the club and ask most of these 3.0-3.5 men and women that would say "cap? yea I usually wear one when the sun is out" so head probably just doesn't worry about getting it to look real except for the graphics.

    They can still see that the headguard covers the whole side of the racquet

    most people wouldn't associate the CAPS with a prestige. they would just see the MG paintjob and assume he using that.
