TGK 231.3

There is a hairpin which i can buy at the moment in 16x19 pattern and was wondering what is a fair value for an 8/10 condition plus, if anyone has played with one, how does it feel like?

Hi,
this is a nice prostock. I have one (Dodig personal) and it is a very nice frame. Cannot tell you what a "fair" price is, it is nearly up to you. It is a rather rare prostock and I think that some players using it changed to the Prestige Rev Pro. At the moment I see more 57a than this model. :D
If I compare it to the MG Rad MP 18/20 it is more powerful, similar nice flex, maybe a little firmer, very good spin, sweetspot bigger (for me) than the 18/20. Cool frame. Prefer it also over the 260.2 (that I also like).
but very personal impression
 
Thanks a lot for getting back with this. Is there any hint to help me from the pics judge whether this is an original 231.3? It has the code on the throat and it is in a Youtek Radical MP paintjob.

well, seeing pictures I could compare it to mine. But having the code in the throat, what makes you doubt? Removing pallets is always safe confirmation but having the code should be ok. Head stopped after the youtek I think to put them like in "yours'"

I also like 260.2 (260.5 as well, but not a big fan of 260.3) – which isn't far from TGT291.2 (IG Prestige – now used for both Pro and S), but
I must admit that 231.1 which I have has a bit more-Prestige like feel. It would be hard for me to decide whetever I prefer Liquidmetal Radical MP or 231.1.

The only problem with 231.1 and I guess 231.3 is that they need extra lead to be a bit more stable. TGT260 and TGT291.2 even more – but they use
CAP grommets which is easier. 231.1 and 231.3 use older standard non-CAP grommets, so you need to put most of the lead on the visible part of the racket.

Do you know maybe if any CAP grommet will fit 231.1 and which is harder – 231.3?

Caps will fit on 231.1
Also prestige Pro (TK238A) caps will fit on the 231.3
I also have standard 16x19 grommets that would fit on the 231.3
