Thanks to Lawrence, Lloyd, and Rod for the tips!

Been using this racket for a few months (3x a week+) and really like it, esp after restring with Powernick. Was previously using the 135 slimbody version, which I liked but came home after practice one night to see frame cracked – hadn’t even noticed walling it.
So i got the regular 135 radical as replacement and immediately noticed that it’s super robust. It feels solid (and a bit weighty) in the swing/hit, something I like. It has a dampened feel, dumpfy-bongo sound esp with powernick strings. This is my workhorse racket now. Love it. I used lots of other lighter teardrop rackets, but find a solid traditional shape control racket like this far better for my game.

I just purchased this racket and added an overgrip. The weight is 165 grams. Seems heavy. I have not used it yet.
This looks like the new racket of Amanda Sobhy judging by her Instagram post today.
Thanks for the tip! Added above
Looks like Mands wasn’t too impressed with this racket and had already switched to the Head Graphene Touch Radical Slimbody 120 at the World Champs.
See Laura Massaro has changed her racket in this weeks competition. Playing with head graphene touch speed instead in xenon
