Ok, didn't want to keep this specific point going...but yeah I have read that too and I honestly would find that hard to believe. You could speculate that perhaps the people at Head somehow got a hold of the molds to the Pro One and basically continued to supply their client what he needed, but again I would find it hard to believe. For one thing, the Pro One OS has an open string pattern of 16/19 and the Radicals (if you look at the pictures of the various ones he used), they all have at least the 18/19 just like the consumer Radicals. If you look at the pictures of the supposed Flexpoint model he is holding in his hands, it does not look like a Pro One but does look like a Radical Trisys 260 painted to look like a Flexpoint. In my opinion, I'd say the most plausible conclusion is that Andre used a custom Radical based off of the original Trisys 260 all these years and simply had it painted to match whatever Radical model that was out each year.
