Just watch him and Querrey dish it out.
What racket is he using under the paint, or is it stock?
I am pretty sure it is the Microgel radical MP with a paint job of the new one because on the new one there is a white strip on the frame and on the old one there isnt. Cilic's racquet doesnt have a white strip.
The grommets you mean?
Yah that it true, but i want to know if he was using a real MG.
It's the new Head Youtec Radical just released this month.
Yes we know but dincuss was wondering if it was a paint job or not
I think its a pro tour racquet thats only available to the pros because it didnt have the teflon caps. Before he was picked up by head he was using wilson so it still might be a wilson with head pj.
But its a 16X19, or i counted wrong
Edit: Its 18X20
I think one of these is under the paint.
That looks like a stock wilson racquet and it is probably under the Head Radical PJ
how does the prestge MP play with RIP Power and a leather grip?
It plays well not very stiff plays soft and I put an overgrip over the leather grip. Really like the feel of it so far
Nice, all the tennis shops i go to have no leather left, and wont be ordering for a while.
Cilic is not using a Wilson. It is a HEAD Radical MP.
If memory serves me it is the TGK231.3.
Which one is that?
(sorry i dont know)
The one i have to string for a local pro is a CAPped MG Rad but i think CAPping is a later addition...so i go for "legal" MG (w/ YouTek Pj)
So is Cilic racket TGK231.3 (MG Radical MP 16x19) available in Europe or only for pro's also does anyone here own one?
If you own/or have hit with one I am curious how it compares to stock MG Radical MP 18x20 and maybe pt630/pt57a/pt57e
i own a few of his used racquets did some customizing for him before wimbledon. its definetly a tgk 231.3 pattern is 16x19 length is 27in. uses 16g babolat gut on the mains and alu power on the cross.
RIP power is garbage, seriously it feels like the racquet is strung with rubber bands. Do yourself a favor and string with a real string like nxt, x-cel or gut.
How is the hoop layout does it feel differently than stock Microgel Radical MP of course ignoring the open string pattern. I mean flex feel etc...
Wow i seriously need to get my hands on a 16 x 19 radical MP
Get me one too lawl
It can't be Wilson K-factor. It's shape is different and also the sound off the racket is different as well.
Read the thread Cilic uses TGK231.3.
I think we are putting too much creadence into those Codes. Those codes traditionally has been false in many occasions and is highly unreliable. Head people are probably laughing their buns off,,,, reading these threads trying to figure out what the pros are REALLY using......lol
You don't have a clue as to what you are talking about. I am laughing my buns at you when you write post like the last one.
Strange..this one sounds familiar....
Guys i am 99% positive that Fedace is TW "planted" "community manager" and his job is to "entertain" kind of like joker entertain the king in old days. It is in his job description to post this funny nonsensical sweet little nothing. this is IMHO anyways.
Alternatively we have unique human being that officially has IQ of -1 and I don't think that is the case.
They forgot to "plant" a brain in their joker...
I agree that Fedace's posts can be entertaining due to their very high level of "WTF?" but they can be very misleading for new users/serious posters.
My favorite is "This can't be a K-factor because the sound is different." Found in this thread.
Why does everyone get pissed when fedace posts things? Everytime I see a post of his, people post really hostile replies. I'm just curious. I've never had a problem with anything he said.
Listen, i'm 101% positive that the Fed LOVES tennis...but at the same time, he comes out with such (mainly tech) arguments that are a)not supported by actual facts and b)most of the times, plainly and simply not true. Than he tries to defend his point of view with more nonsense (even when faced by proof-backed FACTS) , and when in deep water (is it water? ) comes out with posts like the above-mentioned one..that lovable, patented Fedace's "i speaketh the truth" final post...(only to start with other pleasantries in other threads)
So did Cilic stay with tgk231.3 or did he go with pro stock youtek radical "tgk260 something" for 2010 of course still 16x19
You can see lead at 3 and 9
The Whip... 350g strung...
^^ gamma hi-tec is the best grip in my opinion. Looks like cilic and haas use it.
