I haven't commented on this forum for ages =/.

Anyways, after receiving that very handy TW Email i checked out the MicroGel Radical Pro Page and there's a typo.

In the text it says it has a 16/18 pattern:

Whilst in the "Specs" it states the pattern is 16/19:

16 Mains / 19 Crosses
 
There are other issues on the Radical Pro page:

-A strung weight of 11.7 oz and a balance of 2 pts HL doesn't equal a swing weight of 315 (2 pts HL and a SW of 315 are identical to the specs of the MP Radical...I assume the specs got switched).

-A Head rep told me the beam was 20mm, not 21. He could have been misinformed, so this one I'm not sure about.

-The string pattern listed is mains skip 9T, 8H and 10H. That's a pattern for a racquet with 18 mains, while the Pro is a 16 main pattern (again, that pattern matches the pattern for the Radical MP, I assume the specs got doubled again).

Are these specs correct? Or were they a typo? Let me know if these claims are totally off base. Thanks guys.

We're going to re-spec it as a couple of the specs you pointed out are a bit suspect. Should be updated by tomorrow.

The swingweight still can't be correct, the Extreme has similar weight, is more HL yet has much more SW than the Radical??

That's exactly what I was thinking, but I didn't want to meddle. 11.7 and 4pts HL would carry a really high swing weight...It's gotta be in reality like 6-8 pts HL, and even then it seems like it should have a swing weight in the low 320s. Any insight on this TW?

That's what the RDC machine spit out upon several go arounds. However, we can do another testing when the first shipment of Pros come in and test several of them.
