Good question; I've been wondering the same thing for quite a while. I asked a good friend of mine, who happens to be a Head rep quite high up on the food chain, and he wasn't sure either. He did however guess that the TGK #s had something to do with how high the flexpoint was in the hoop. According to him, a major difference between the retail and pro-stock frames that is often overlooked is the location of the flexpoint in the head. The higher the flexpoint, the more suitable the racquet is for heavier hitting. It also dampens the feel more (the reason pro-stock racquets feel more solid; silicone is all but a myth--ask Nate Ferguson if you don't believe me).
