Tgt 260.4 vs youtek ig radical pro?

Has anyone compared these rackets. The only pro stock I have tried is the pt57, since you can't really get a recent retail model.

From my understanding, typically you get the prostocks since they are more flexible and customizable?

-radical ig pro, it is already really flexible (and supposedly feels more flexible according to tenniswarehouse review)
-Retail ig radical pro is also ~323g, so has some room for mods.

Am I missing anything?

TGT260.4 IS the IG Radical Pro (TGK260.4 retail version). Identical mold, layup and manufacturing location. The only difference is no commercial weights in the TGT version.

Adding silicone in the handle instead of commercial weights does dampen the vibrations and mutes the feel a bit so it may feel “softer”.
In most cases the TGT version of a frame is exactly that - the pro stock version of the retail that does not have the commercial weights of the retail. A few examples where this does not apply: TGT231.3 - this is the 16x19 version of the MG Radical MP however, the layup is the TGT231.2 which is stiffer than the retail MGRMP (231.1); TGT260.2 and 260.5 - 16x19 versions of the YT Radical MP/IG Radical MP that never existed as retail frames, etc.

I believe the sw on the retail ig rad pro was 330. I have a pair of tgt 260.4 and it didnt swing nearly as heavy even with a ton of lead at 12 and silicone. After removing the lead and silicone, The static weight wasnt that much lighter esp with the head calfskin grip, but i dont have any numbers available because they're currently in hairpin form. I'll have to assemble one of these days and play around with lead

I have 5 TGT260.3 (IG Radical MP) and have added about 5g of lead at 12 to get them to 335 SW I desire, which is in-line with the retail IG Radical MP. I also added about 25g of silicone/lead in the handle to get it to my HL and desired weight spec of 335g strung with OG.
 
Isn't 260.4 a IG Radical MP with 16x19 string pattern? I always thought that 260.5 is IG Radical Pro pro stock. I have 3 of them and they feel like IG Radical Pro. I also have TGT260.3 and they feel different.
