Hmm how does the beam differ IYO to the head MP
the "black" part of the rackets is actually a black chrome, hopefull you can see it in this pic:

Does it mean REVIEWS are coming? : )
stringing up the yellow now, with the TW play test Tourna BLUE
Ok I played with the yellow 99, Dark red 94, and black 99 today.
I strung the yellow 99 today with the sample tourna blue from TW at 63 16x19 pattern(I knew it was going to be a softer string so I accounted for that, as a reference I string my PT57's at 61lbs)
I was surprised by the yellow, it reminded me of when I used to play with the original radical OS (which keep in mind, is what agassi played with through out his career after signing with head) Ofcourse it could have just been the color ;-)
Though I usually play with a smaller head, heavier racket, I thought "wow I can acutally play with this!"
I guess this would be more for the type of player that has a more whipy stroke, as I was using more wrist with it, but I adjusted quickly. actually it kind of scared me, I thought "maybe I should go to a lighter stiffer racket.... nahhhhh"
It felt solid, with great control. Id have to put this racket in the range of the POG OS, Pro one OS, OG Rad trysis 270 OS, it definately has a more old school feel, almost like a K90, if they made it in a 99 but a little lighter. If you have solid strokes I think youll love it.
but at the same time the feel was unique too, plenty of power but it didnt feel harsh, didnt need a dampner. Felt really connected to the ball.
And what about the Black 99?!?!?!?!
Fig, can you try putting on all of the weights and trying the yellow again?
I mean the 10g buttcap, the side slides, and the tip slide.
Thanks for sharing!

bookmarking this thread now!
thanks for the pix and frist of the many reviews!
the headguard grommet looks weird, we can't see the string and it seems an evolution of the CAP... how does it work?
that is the "weight slide" installed on the top grommet.
I just strung up the orange 99 with Suppex Ace 17 at 65 mains, with Gamma Poly xtra 16 @63 crosses
There are a lot of racquet hoes waiting in eager anticipation for more reviews. *sound of dog panting now*
will report more tonight, just RE-strung, the dark red with Lux BB ace 18, and Silver string 17 X's
