it was a joke... just for me, the PT 2.0 is closest to the original turn radical than any radical that came out after ti or LM or MG in my opinion.

ready to play for tonight. I know the opponent well, she plays a little better than me, is much younger than me, but can't stand flat balls. the last time it was played in 3 sets, but I was playing with less control and less tolerant frames. there, that's going to be another story I think.

The Radicals look the business, I would be thinking I'm in for a hard time if someone pulled out a couple of those on me. I hope you took both of them out of the bag and started shadow swinging with both of them in one hand to warm up your shoulder, then tapped the strings on each one an annoying amount of times until you found the one you wanted to use. Did you beat her?

so, the match was postponed this afternoon (we have + 3h compared to london here)
At the beginning, I warmed up with a lite tour 630, to concentrate on the ball, I didn't feel the ball (mantis power synth 1.25mm X polyfibre touch green player 1.25mm), often off-center balls. after 5 minutes, when warming up for services, I took out the weapon of mass destruction, no matter which one, they are practically equal, tension, balance. 335g for one, 339 for the other. barely noticeable

It was a fairly complicated match to begin with, I was down 4/1, then I said to myself that we had to stop playing like the youngsters in the spin from the baseline, and that we just had to do what I knew how to do. especially with these frames there! ..

result: 4 / 6-1 / 6n less than 1h10.
I had to play again tonight, but the opponent declared WO, and I play tomorrow at the beginning of the evening against a player who cannot play me, she knows how to play balls over her shoulder, but as soon as it is is below the hip she hits and either it comes out, or it goes into the net .. yep ... the final of my category is within my reach.

prototype colorway for the new 360+ radical MP
16x19 with 8 Mains... nice. How's the feel? I'm loving the look of the beam and the long grommet channel... now it just needs to be the right feel and RA. So far, the G360+ lines have been good so hopefully, this continues with the Radical and we get a great MP and Pro. Is the head size a true 98 like the Prestige MP? Thanks

I've been hitting with the 360+ prestige mid with lynx tour 17g. Hitting with this (for only a short while with a long line in ball feeding drills) was surprisingly pleasing. I've been wanting a lighter racquet and thought that the Gravity MP would fill that void but it didn't. I thought the feel was nice. Rep didn't mention the specs and there was nothing painted on it. it did look like a 98 though which I hope it is. I don't know for sure but really hope it isn't a 100

This frame looks nice spec wise. I wish we got an 18x20 but with 8 mains it’s ok. The highlighter orange on the retail doesn’t bother me nearly as much as the ugly grey they are putting on everything right now... if it plays well who cares tho haha
yes...the 8 mains caught my eye. For this grey/orange colorway i really liked it. Unlike the extreme grey... hope the retail is a nice colorway

im getting to hit one this coming week !
i can't wait to get it back in my hands...but who knows when. the demo night was crowded and you only got to hit about 2-3 balls then you rotated out during ball feed drills and then during live ball it was hit and miss (pun intended) with the various levels participating.

The paintjob from what I’ve seen is a letdown, interesting and easier on the eyes than 360 version but still, it is borderline Wilson paintjob effort.

Those strings tho.....
I was showing the strings to the rep that I had and it was listed as 17g. It looks like a 16g. I also strung up 16g for a coach and it also looks 15g. the Orange though looked just right.

I can't remember if it was in the "experimental" package or retail package for the strings that I used.
