. 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).
Also weird is the fact that both, the retail and the Pro Stock YT Radical MP have the same code on the frame -- TGK260.1...
