    Yup nevermind, i dont bother to learn to judge by couple of photos. Prefer to physically examine the rackets. Perhaps you can share how you could tell its fake.

    By the way fake rackets dont sell in malaysia as genuine item are available at good price here. Just fyi.

    one of the easiest way to tell a fake is when the frame is prestrung. again, you may learn in time what that means. it doesnt matter if you bought it straight from wilson. if it's prestrung its not a good frame

    I would agree with u on prestrung racket if bought from the bay or China websites. And i didn't. Pls let me know if u want further photos to examine it.

    Actually It does matter when buying direct from wilson/dealers. So to confirm its legit. It was confirmed somewhere in this forum that main distributor (local) do prestrung rackets before selling @ higher than normal price @ premium outlets. If not sold, they reduce the price and then people like me step in to enjoy those. ;) if that is what you mean by fake/not good frame, then I humbly accept it.

    Picked up some oldies pretty cheaply and in excellent condition! Head IG Radical Pro. One strung with Tour Bite 1.10 and the other with TB 1.10/Sensation[​IMG]

    Modified Microgel Radical MP, for Doubles
    Modified Tecnifibre 315LTD, either Singles or doubles, depending on my need for a little more pop.
    Modified Youtek IG Radical Pro, for when I'm feeling up to grinding it out at the baseline.

    ...... But why? do you have a family of tennis players, do you have more money than sense, you're obsessive? I'd love to know your background... you have some beauties here alright!

    Maybe he is a collector, Collecting these rackets seem costs less than collecting air jordans imo

    I use it for the most part, but I've recently started loving the IG Radical Pro more and more. I used to play with Aero Pro Drive GT's with RPM string, then my elbow exploded (that's what it felt like anyways). I started back at it with Dunlop M3.1s, and liked them, but didn't love them. Then I came across Tennis Nerd's article on the 315LTD. I bought one, and loved it. I then bought another and started modifying them. I loved them, but yearned for a little more power. In the meantime, I found an old MG Radical MP in a closet. Someone tried to sand down the handle, and wrecked the pallets (of course). I picked it up many years ago at a garage sale for $10. I decided to order up some pallets and try it out. I really liked it, but wanted a bit of a more open string pattern. I started looking around and landed on the IG Radical Pro. It seemed to be a bit flexible, but with a "closer to modern" feel. I was a little nervous about my TE coming back, but so far so good. I switch back and forth between all three sometimes in the same match though.

    Hey guys, so this is what I'm looking for in a racquet:

    - Plush, buttery feel
    - Stable (while being under 12 oz would be ideal!)
    - Tons of control
    - Free power (if I'm not asking for too much)

    On the basis of that, I'm trying to decide between these racquets: Head Graphene Touch Speed Pro vs Wilson Ultra Tour vs Prokennex Kinetic Ki Q+ Tour Pro (325) vs Prince Textreme Tour 100P vs Angell TC97 (18x20) vs Head Graphene Touch Speed Pro.
    Not in a position to demo them as well, so I'm stuck. Would love to hear your opinions. Thanks!

    For one, I don't think anybody has gotten to spend enough time with the ultra tour yet. You'd have to look at the TW playtester review for that one.

    Yeap, was taking a gamble and hoping that someone in the forhms has had experience with that.
    Any thoughts on the remaining sticks?

    Haha I'm just messing with you, the Radicals are all fantastic frames as well. I just made the decision to switch to the Tecnifibre and I love it!

    Lol that's a Hot Toys 1/4 I.M. 3 XLII. I don't collect any MU/3.75" figures, I mostly have 1/12 scale (6") figures. Wish I could get some SDCC exclusives :(.
