    Where'd you get it from? I don't see it listed on TW or TWE?

    Has the radical 260 a muted feel? I need opinions, because mine feels so muted and low powered that I start to think that something is wrong with mine .
    Strings: toalson syn gut, mid tension...in other racquets (eg yonex super rd 95 and rd7) feels soft and mushy, so I m sure the strings are ok

    I got it from tennis nuts. Not sure why it is not listed elsewhere, not even on the official Wilson website as far as I can see.

    Also Id like to point out that my 260 feels exactly like my i prestige mp (with toalson syn gut too), VERY muted and low powered

    I have the 280 -always same strings-, and despite being 58RA, it has more power than my 260 and my i prestige.
    Is this possible?

    Yes, I found it to even have more power than the XT Prestige MP.

    Taken when I use to admire my racquets - and spent time for them on Photoshop!
    I don't have any of those any more (except HIGPMP).
    And now, I take pics of racquets just before place them for sale!
    The honey days are over...

    Nice way to present your racquets :)
    That's what I like about tennis: It's a hobby that is not restricted to actual court play.

    My Six.One 95 S collection. I stocked up since it looks like Wilson won't make any more Six.One's with an L5 grip, and there's no indication that this string pattern is coming back.

    My radical tour was as low powered as a racquet could get. And almost in volkl muted Territory. I suppose they are similar.

    It works. It's actually my least favorite 6.1 paint, but I found a setup that's a match for my game. 18 is more than I need, but there's something comforting in that.

    The 6.1 16x18 is my next favorite, and you can see I have a few of those as well in the rest of my collection:

    I have two of these and I noticed a differnt hue in color between the two. The one on the top of your pile there has a goldish tint where the others are a more pure white. Did you notice this as well?

    I bought the top two at launch, and the rest were manufactured a year or two later. I've noticed a definite difference, with the new frames being whiter. I hope, at least, that it's a change in paint and not dirt/oil from my hands. A paint change is the much less disgusting explanation.

    The new racquets also shipped with rounded butt caps, while the original batch used the squared-off Pro Staff style with a "W Spin" insert.

    I love old WW2 planes.. P51's so I did my blade in a P51 color scheme. I don't use it, but it was fun just to paint it up.

    Here is my collection placed in order of when i got each racket, from left to right. My collection began in 2005 when I started playing tennis and turned 13, the Pure Strike 2017 on the far right was bought literally yesterday.

    Pp until the past few years I literally never ever cared about racket specs, weight, string pattern, stifness etc, I didn't even bother to read or check these things, I simply just bought rackets based on how they looked and who endorsed them.

    So my first proper racket was the Wilson Ncode 6.1 Pro Staff 95, bought as a present when i was 13, strung and with an overgrip the thing weighs about 358g, so here I was, a skinny *** kid weighing no more then 100lbs wielding a 358g racket I was also very short too, I spent months and years just smashing and serving balls against a brick wall near my house, not to brag or anything but I've been told and notice that i hit a heavier ball then most people I play with, I'm sure it was all those years using a heavy racket whilst being so physically small, I suppose it gave me a stronger arm then usual.

    I will also note that around 2012-2013 I stopped using my Pro Staff for a bit and bought the Pure Drive and Aero Pro GT once again without reading up on specs etc, I played with them for about a year or more and got some serious tennis elbow, that's when I started reading up on rackets and found out about stiffness, string setups and all, I was going full bed poly strung at about 58-60lbs, after this episode I went back to playing with my Wilson Pro Staff and Prince 03 White, just for the sake of comfort and also more control albeit with less power and pop, so recently I demo'ed about 7-8 rackets looking for something a bit lighter then 358g and something that gave my a little easier power and some more pop, after a month of demoing many rackets the Pure Strike 2017 16x19 was the one, It was quite soft and flexible for a Babolat and had the liveliness I've been looking for, I'm also being smart about choosing arm friendly string setups too.

    To sum things up, I now use the Pro Staff strung with Wilson NXT at 53lbs, Prince Speedport 03 White strung with Wilson NXT at 56lbs and my newest addition, Pure Strike 2017 with RPM Team at 53lbs,and I've given the Pure Drive and Aero Pro GT to my girlfriend
