Andy Murray endorses the Head Radical Pro but he actually plays with a pro stock tennis racket called the Head PT57A2, which is painted to look like the latest version of the Radical Pro.

The PT57A2 is perfect for Andy’s counterpunching playing style as it has a heavy swing weight which helps Andy to redirect fast incoming balls.

In contrast, the Radical Pro is better suited to intermediate to advanced recreational players who want a solid frame that offers lots of power, spin, and control.

Similar to other pro players, Murray uses a hybrid setup for his strings with Luxilon Alu Power in the mains, and Babolat VS Touch Natural Gut in the crosses.

Grip Size

Andy Murray’s grip size is 4 3/8 with an overgrip, which brings the grip size closer to 4 1/2.

Vibration Dampener

From looking at close-up pictures of his racket, it looks like Andy does not play with a vibration dampener on his strings.

Can you buy Andy’s tennis racket online?

I have found the best place to get your hands on a PT57A2 is on websites like Pro Stock Tennis, which specializes in Pro Stock tennis rackets.

If you just want a racket that looks like Andy’s, then you can pick up a Radical Pro at most good online tennis shops.
