What a frame! To me this has to be one of the all time great molds. Its amazing to see such soo many tour players still use the radical mp. It speaks volumes to player preference judged by the volume of usage of thin beamed 98's on tour

Not only the microgel line either. Radics in general are just great.

Yes, I have it too and it is a great stick, very comfortable as well. What strings do you guys prefer it with?

Kinda depends on the player,....I hit flat,...hard,..but flat,....i rarely ever break strings,... If You're in that 'somewhat lucky group' then You kinda have the luxury of using 18g,....if You're a string breaker,..then Ya gotta probably go thicker,..(BlackCode 17 is pretty highly praised too..)

Been hoping to try this frame. Will probably pcik one up when I'm stateside.

I hope it's better than the Liquidmetal version.

I really had no racquet on my list above or even close to it until I found the pure storm tour, which basically just improved on the radical's 'do everything solidly with no outstanding shot' thing Im every way at the expense of some extra weight.

With a leather grip, I've found that mine plays absolutely perfectly. I've found my grail!

I really liked some lead at the 2 and 10 along with some silicone in the handle. Low tensions felt a lot nicer on it too.
