    I have no idea. I personally prefer all of my flexpoints over the LM's that I have played, but pros often get set on one feel and stick with it for a long time. And maybe they like the feel of them better...just a guess.

    Murray is actually using something like an i.Radical with CAP grommets (heavily modified of course, to the point of being very unlike a stock i.Rad). Some of the younger or lower-ranked pros are actually using LM racquets, and either prefer to keep the regular paint or HEAD hasn't gotten around to paintjobbing their racquets yet.

    well im refering to the ones using the paint jobs, I can spot them easily now, so you figure they might as well get the new paint scheme right??

    The paintjobbed flexpoints are also really easy to spot.

    perhaps its selling tactic for head. They have some i.rads left and LM racquets and are trying to sell them off so they still have to advertise.

    Actually in my conference I have seen a majority of the players using the Wilson nSix-One 95. I've seen a few guys with LM Prestiges, and they are from the 2nd best team in my state.(lost in state team finals to a school from Chapel Hill) I hate teams better than mine:x

    I think the same goes with the liquidmetal instinct xl. They discountinued the LM instinct, but they are keep selling the XL because Gasquet still using the XL, and HEAD haven't gave him a FXP Instinct PJ yet because Head still wants to sell LM Instinct XL.
