    lots of previous discussions, if u do a search.
    IMO the earlier radicals w/ twin tube, or the yellow and black r the best playability and feel. BTW I thought in Beijing, mostly everyone only buying the new stuff.

  3. Never played with them, but I thought that the first Twin Tube ones with zebra stripes and splashes of yellow on them looked the best. I think they are right around the 1998 model, which many Radical players also seem to think play the best. You'll pick up a lot more information if you do a search.

    I prefer the original Trisys 260 Radical (yellow and black) over any of the newer ones... yes that includes the 1998 Twin Tube. Trisys, though without twin tube, has a very soft feel to it. Excellent racquet.

    Original is the only one that weighs 12 oz strung. The others always felt like tweeners

    Too subjective a question. I'd say there are more '98s out there than anything, and it's probably the most versatile. That and the 97 are probably what people will still seek out long after Agassi retires. Both the 98 and 97 had zebra stripes. But to be a classic, it has to be around a while, and Head keeps adding stuff to them and changing them, so probably none are classic.

    Prestige Classic - the racket you describe is the 1997 model, bit heavier than the 98 model (some silver on it) - the 98 wouldnt win a beauty contest ;)
