    Hello everyone,

    i noticed on photos that Cilic and Berdych racquets: Head Radical MP version have 16x19 string pattern! As You know it's easy to recognise/count strings and that means they use Pro versions! What do You think about this?

    Pro is 16x19
    MP is 18x20


    All the best

    I believe I read that Cilic is using a paint job of his Microgel Radical and the Berdych is using a custom Head painted to look like a Youtek radical.

    This was news to me, but I did a pic search and found both. Mostly 16x19.

    It's not the Radical Pro though. The Pro version is rounder.

    Probably a PT57 with Radical grommets.

    It's possible, so it looks like their 'radical MP' logo is written just because of marketing..? In reality they use custom Pro versions

    Both use the TGK231.3 which I believe are pro stock versions of the Radical

    EDIT: See below

    According to posts by dragon and vsbabolat

    I'm totallly new to head codes but speaking of them i found this:
    TGK231.3 = MG Radical MP 16x19
    TGK260.2 = YouTek Radical Pro 16x19

    Hey vsbabolat, you wouldn't happen to know the beam width or flex rating on either the 231 or 260 series do you? Thanks!
