    If you can handle the weight...superior in all things...plow and power are awesome in PT57's

    if you can get it moving, yes.

    the microgel rad MP is just too underpowered in stock form for me. control is great but i cant get any ass on the ball. would have to do more lead tinkering.

    For the Agassi addicted...... :)
    could you tell me please is there is any different and which in case...., between the HEAD Trisys 260 OS (made in Austria) and the Radical Tour OS 690 (WITHOUT the Twin-Tube)...the very first one used by Agassi.
    I supposed the first was the USA name, the second the EUROPE name.....in fact are they exactly the same or not?
    thanks

    Recently acquired a MIA Bumblebee 630 and with an overgrip added, the specs came out to be 343g, 33.6cm balance and 355 SW with no lead added, anyone who played with the Bumblebee before had similar specs?

    Seems about right. Depends on the grip you have on there, etc. I have synthetic on one and a leather on another and they are both around 355-357g with OG.

    What about the Swingweights though? Has anyone tried adding weight to the handle to make it more headlight, does it play better?

    I can't manage the Zebras even with leather...but Candycane with leather grip for me are perfect balance, headlight and a lot of plow...if I can convert one in 16x19 like Murray frames could be fantastic xD

    Update: I sold my deformed 260 (extremely muted) and now I hate again my new 260 (rocket launcher!):confused:
    Same strings and same tension.


    Im not lucky with HEAD frames.

    The SW seems a bit high... does your racquet have an XL on it... or have you measured the length... maybe you got a pro stock or something that is longer and that has increased the SW... or there is something hiding under the bumpers...

    The Radical Tour should be 339 SW... or around there... I don't know what 33.6cm Balance makes it in HL terms... but that number looks a bit high... On Angell Racquets that would be like 2 pts HL or something... The Rad Tour should be around 7 pts HL... (not sure about this part because I don't know what 33.6cm is in HL figures... and I've never measured mine...)

    I have never measured the balance on mine... but I have a leather grip, overgrip, some weight at 3, 9 and either side of 12 o'clock... and it comes out at around 373g... but swings with no problem... seems similar to my other racquets which are around 345SW...

    Its standard length. I measured the SW again and there may have been an error in my first calculation. Its SW is still high, closer to 350, 348ish using the swingtool app with about a 4 pts HL balance.

    Yes they have the original grommets on, uncapped.

    My two are in that neighborhood too, though I have leather on mine so the balance is lower.

    That's a little closer in SW... did you have a peek under the head guard to see if there is any lead tape... it's still a few points more HH than what TW has it at (being 7 pts HL)... I think I had a look around, the unstrung balance should be 31.5cm... not sure how much that moves upward when strung... I would have guessed something around 32.5cm... but really not sure... other's might know this info...
