I have been continuing to train and practice here at home. New movements, different equipment - improving my game and preventing future injury! I feel more confident each day.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend #NoleFam


Nastavljam sa treninzima.. Nove tehnike, drugačija oprema i mnogo inovacija da unapredim igru i sprečim potencijalne povrede. Super se osećam!!
Kako ste vi proveli vikend?

New equipment is covered by the hand wrap. Wearable impact monitor.:cool:
Nice simple paint job on both frames
 
It's a mystery. Very thin beam anyway. I wonder is it a new Head. Aside from the new radical aren't they bringing out a new prestige?

OK the photo is not highest quality but I counted the strings. It's really 18*19........ can guess it's head's answer to ultra tour (real or very close pro stock)

So since it’s a 18x19 string pattern, I’m guessing it’s going to be the G Touch Prestige Tour PJ?

Is the any possibility that Head will promote Djokovic to endorse their Prestige line (no decent face at the time) and make Zverev the Speed ambassador?

It's likely, since Zverev has a autograph Speed while Nole doesn't.

Is he going full Agassi then with a Radical OS (since it's 18x19)?

Edit: Nevermind, looks too small, probs a GTP Tour that's going in the bin after a few sessions :p

He could keep the same paint, Head doesn't let things like square inches, cap grommets, or number of mains and crosses get in their way.
There appears to be a lot of lead in that Head. Platform racquet for development?

Marin Cilic is top tour player for Prestige line at 6 in the world currently.
Anyone with 1/10 eyesight can see Cilic is in fact handling a Radical with Prestige PJ.
The bumper and and the head shape are unbelievably different.
And nor he plays like you are supposed to do with a prestige (just KABOUUUM! from the mid-baseline, no plow-through, only open-stand forehands...).
Nole is much better because of his pin-point precision, but still only barely more credible

Head should steal Lucas Poille from Babolat (hard to jailbreak a Frenchman though), or try to sign Stefanos Tsitsipas.

We all know Cilic is with a Radical (TGK231.3?), Djokovic PT131B, Murray PT57A etc...

We re talking about the racquet he Endorses, not the racquet he's actually using.

I know - what I mean is that Cilic just does not fit with his Prestige paintjob, visually.
If you are a potential Prestige buyer, sure enough you have not Cilic's poster hanging on your wall.

Why is that?
Because theyre about to be superceded by a newer, betterer model!

On an unrelated subject does anybody think Heads racquet names are getting out of hand? The "Head Graphene Prestige Touchy Tour" is getting just a little rediculous.

"better"....
How do you define that?

Looks like a 25-year-old racket is still superior to many new and "better" ones of today.
Because newer = betterer, just ask the racquet manufacturers. They should know, since they wouldnt sell anything thats actually WORSE than their old stuff, surely?

Time to offload those beat up PT113C3-PO's on fleabay and get touchy with some graphene, dr!

what is Touchy Tour ?
I did a touchy tour of Ibiza once. Ended up getting slapped a lot :oops:

He’s never played with the Speed Pro. That was just the paint job he had on. He actually used a very old version of the Radical, hence why his head doesn’t look like the 100sq inches that retails Speeds have. Wouldn’t surprise me if it’s an old Rad with the paint job of the new Prestige Touch tour.

^^^What?! I thought Cilic used a Rev Pro?!:eek: And we all know Djokovic uses a Graphene Touch Speed Pro. Does Andy Murray use the Radical Pro or MP?

This thread should get real interesting real soon :cool:
Djokovic endorses the Speed but under the paint job lies a pro stock Radical. Murray uses an old Prestige with a Radical paintjob for endorsement purposes. Pros rarely change their sticks, only the paintjob. For example Stan Wawrinka uses an old VCore 95D with the Duel G paintjob. It’s all marketing to sell newer rackets. Pros in fact use old sticks with almost no technology such as Graphene etc. The technology is just a fancy selling tool and brings little to a pros game.

Lol he was being sarcastic. Murray's stick is the pt57a pro tour 630 mold not a prestige. Djokovic uses a very unique frame some posters have his, verdascos, and stepaneks frames (pt113b)

I don’t know what he is testing that is 18x19 but by the throat and grommet it doesn’t appear to be the new prestige tour. Probably a custom drill of his current frame.

not sure how 18x19 would feel any different from his 18x20 in the same frame...

Well, it could be a different layup or a mild variation. Perhaps it gives him more comfort during his recovery without hitting too different.

Btw my ankle is finally better but I started a new job so I have less time to hit.

Sorry @Nick T, but - unless, as I suspect, you're trolling/throwing chum in the waters - you're like the guy in the horror movie just walking around noting how nice everything looks, when the audience knows that in about 20 seconds a thousand flesh eating zombies are about to attack...best of luck either way!!

Most probably that is the correct answer!
I don’t see if a cross string less will make any difference...
