No Radical OS anymore?

Wonder why they are going away from the straight beam on the Radicals.

Don't take every post as the whole truth...

No 18x20 Patterns at all?

Wow

Wonder why they are going away with the dark/black caps. I wasn't feeling the clear caps, probably arent going to feel these red caps unless it's a dark red.

Had the same info from France two months ago, except for the red cap grommets, and the prestige pro (10g less => 315g), so seems right after all.

I may need to stock up on Radical OS.

And Prestige Mid's :shock:

MarrratSafin 08-16-2013 01:10 PM

The Prestige 600 line is dead..:shock:

darklore009 08-16-2013 01:16 PM

are they going to add shared holes to these rackets too?

couch 08-16-2013 05:56 PM

Any stiffness numbers on Radicals? Wondering if they are going to increase the stiffness?

Bartelby 08-16-2013 07:16 PM

Interesting. I thought I read last time that the prestige pro would be ten grams lighter, but maybe not now.

West Coast Ace 08-16-2013 07:39 PM

Source?

And is the 2014 confirmed? My stringer said they heard they'll be out for Xmas this yr. - which makes sense - sure you get buzz because of the AO by waiting until January, but miss the holiday $$$.

I'm sure I'll like the Prestige Mid. I've been trying the Speed Pro, but keep going back...

Bartelby 08-16-2013 08:42 PM

Radical before and Prestige after Christmas is what I read elsewhere.

Agree the dark caps looked so much better.

Pfffttttt will have to start stocking up on the radical pro then....stupid move by head!

MAXXply 08-16-2013 10:46 PM

That Canadian racket guy on the auction site seems to have the world's remaining stocks of YT Prestiges, the last with the "traditional" black CAPS grommets, and NOS Radicals etc. I think people here will now make a run on his stocks.

Is he the racket industry's equivalent of those cheap bookshops that sell unsold books by the crate-load? (Not that he is cheap - far from it)

meh it's not just canook, oz seems to have a whole lot of microgels being pushed out distributor warehouse too

I can just say that is not really true.. There are virtually no similarity between IG Prestige Pro and the 2014 Prestige Pro other then the stringpattern :)
