I always thought that the Prestiges were 21mm and Radicals 22mm straight?
The bridge on the MG Radical MP and Novak's actual racket looks identical to me.
Yeah, the Radical MP molds from that era, MG and LM, have a listed beam width of 21mm, same with the Prestiges. I'll check my LM, but it looks to be the same width as the Prestiges.
Now, about the bridge, I've read some posts where people claim the bridge on a MG Radical MP gets slimmer along the middle main strings area (IIrc I found this to be true with MG Radical MPs I've held before, granted I don't have any right now to confirm), while for Novak's racquet, the bridge width remains constant.
Again, I know I'm being very picky.
