    I checked last 25 pages and noticed that only couple member owned Head Radical. Where are all (Graphene) Radical users? Is it that ****ty racquet?

    Just different than older model radicals, and a lot of people here would rather play with the pre graphemes versions as that is when Head changes the mold drastically to make it a more powerful racquet (but much less controlled and not as soft feeling).

    Got this one for 10€ and decided I'll try installing Head pallets on the hair pin. The code is PT924.5 (retail AeroGel 4D 300 Tour), and the Head pallets fit just well enough. With the leather grip, this one comes in at 312 g unstrung. On a side note, it really puzzles me why this stick (and its successors) is not more popular. Silky smooth copy of Head's finest. Well, I suppose the Dunlop name just isn't as strong as Wilson, but even the Tecnifibre copies are getting much more attention...

    The restoration of a relatively recent acquisition was almost completed!
    Only the repair of some small points remains, where, due to "old age", the satin transparent finish has been peeled off. I do not even know if I'm going to bother. However, color and graphics are in perfect condition!

    It was bought at a very good price, but the price was only for the frame, as all the rest parts were useless...
    I put new TK82S pallets (from std. L1 size), basic grip (it has only 5-6 rotten overgrips on top of each other !!!), new grommets (from Microgel MP - placed difficult, have to warmed a lot - as its own are cracked and glued badly) and new string, Polystar Energy 1.25 in 44-40 lbs (it has a synthetic-gut 15 years old). But I think it was worth restoring this "historic" (1999 release) Made in Austria Head Ti.Radical Midplus!

    Serving and the 2HBH are a dream with this stick. I can see why the likes of Ivanesevic and Safin used this back in the day. Only serve I didn’t quite hit well was the slice, but both the kick and the flat were great. Touch of course was stellar. Hit some drop shots and lob volleys with deft touch.

    The frame forced me not to be lazy with the forehand though, unlike the PK powerhouse, not sure whether I like that or not :p

    I think everyone should have one (at least for the bitchin paint @n8dawg6 ).

    I’ll have to tinker with the grip though, buttcap seems to be a bit loose and the base grip is some grimy ****.

    Sad note: found out that a few weeks ago one of the guys in the winter playing group tossed a prestige Classic in the trash, because he thought nobody would want it.... (moment of silence)
