View Full Version : Is the FXP Radical MP good for spin?

I tried the FXP Radical MP today, and I got the impression that it was more suited towards flatter hitters. Whenever I tried to go for a really top-spinny angled shot I super-framed (and I mean, SUPER framed) it, send it really high. It would land in, but what a waste of a winner opportunity. This may just be me and the sun in my eyes, but do any other owners play with heavy spin?

i just tried it for the first time. i found it great for spin. i was amazed by how much spin i got out of it. i thought it was supposed to be like the lm radical that everyone says gets little spin. i was never good at hitting the high heavily spun balls but it was easy with the radical. i was also surprised that it didn't feel boardy at all and it actually had some power

The TOUR version of it (100 sq. in) is very good for top spin
you should try it

Played with this racquet, didn't really like the feel. Well to me, all Radical's feel the same.
