No, no, then I got you wrong. I thought you mean the G on the black pro player sticker on the inside of the racquet fork.So the “G” in TGT and TGK indicates they were customized in (year) ?
Ohhhh, okay. Man, I searched and searched to find that, but to no avail. Preciate it!No, no, then I got you wrong. I thought you mean the G on the black pro player sticker on the inside of the racquet fork.
The G in TGT and TGK stands for Graphite (Carbon). HEAD also makes TFK (Composite) and TAK (Aluminum) racquets for the lower price segments.
Back in the day, head used "TGK" for both, retail and pro stock.Hello everyone,
I have a lot of doubts and questions I hope you can clarify.
recently I decided to purchase the youtekIG Prestige Mid, it came in L3 so I had To up the grip size to L4 when changing the pallets I realised that the code is TGK292.1 whereas on the internet I googled is TGT292.1
Before the IG I played with the youtek, I decided to purchase the 3rd youtek and I realised The throat of the racket has a paint showing made in China which my other 2 sticks does not have and it plays really differently.
the questions I have
1) Do all Youtek ig mid that you can get from the shops are TGK or some may be TGK and TGT?
2) Iv no idea what’s TGT and TGK is I’m sure they have a difference? Or no?
the worry I have is if it’s going to be like my Youtek, the 3rd stick really feels terrible.
Hope you can clarify
The TGK (Retail) and TGT (Pro stock) codes are identical mold, layup, manufacturing site. The difference is commercial weights removed in the Pro stock / TGT.
@dr325i , it's funny how so many "experts" can't admit when they're wrong, let alone do so publicly. They think it tarnishes their rep when, actually, it reinforces but one thing: their narcissism. I don't know you. But I now know one thing about you: you really are an expert because we all gain authority by learning from our mistakes. Good on ya'.
Example of commercial weight in a Head racquet from this thread https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/ind...slicing-tgt291-2-to-see-how-its-built.595723/Really wanted to see what these "commercial weights" look like without having to take my racquets apart . Anyone have any pictures?
Sometimes, if the hairpin is too light, some weights are still baked with the TGT (and PT) frames. These are not "commercial" weights used to bring the frames to Retail specs and minimize variances.Oh wow cool thread.
BUT - if TGTs don't have the commercial weights, what would fill that void? Also, howcome the TGTs in said thread do have the weights there...?
