I recently saw this Head Radical Tour. It was yellow and black....on the side above the grip it said Radical Tour in a red cursive kind of font. However, when I searched for the Radical Tour online. It shows the 98 Twin Tube Radical Tour. THe one i saw, though, does not have the silver on top.... THe racquet I saw had yellow at the 3 and 9 o'clock position...black at tip of head...and a black throat. Is this racquet good? It costs $90. I was going to purchase it...but I recently bought a Ti.Radical and was fairly happy with that. Should i go for the Radical TOur?

Radical Tour in Black & Yellow is a totally different racquet. I miss them very much. If you feel like the Ti-Radical , don't think about the R Tour. It will be your nightmare. On the other hand, if u throw all your balls to the fence with Ti-R, then, try it.

Try one on ****, cheapest great racquet available. Sold one w/Luxilon strings for $15.50 and it was a Trysis 260.

would the radical tour os be better than the pog os? i know that it'll probably be plenty of work for me...i'm only around a 3.5 player at best.....

currently my Ti.Radical is strung with Touch Turbo...and weighs around 11.8 oz with 5.5 grams each at 3 and 9 o'clock and around 20 grams in the handle. I have no problem swinging it and getting my shots in. THe thing is...I'm only around 14...and already experiencing some wrist problems....the Ti.Radical is pretty flexible...but i head that the POG OS and Radical Tour OS are both extremely flexible and soft to hit with. So, I'm not sure if I should buy the Radical Tour....or just buy the POG since theres a lot more of that available.

How long have you used Touch Turbo and at what tension?

second time only....i think at around 70lbs...i know polyesters arent suppose to be strung at high tensions...but when i strung it at 64...it felt springy and had too much power
