Mine are 12 oz and 6pts hl. I do love them. What other similar frames should I try for fun. I also prefer a more flexible frame as well. I did the standard search here but more interested on your thoughts vs just looking at specs. You can leave out the POG I have some of those. Thanks for your thoughts.

Some background. Loved my old ti radicals no idea why I sold them. Still have my 1982 pro Kennex Silver Ace. Very smooth. Thoughts on the 5g?

Radical tour is something I used to play its a lovely racket. The vantage bc20 has similar qualities with a low flex but powerful and crisp still. Superb racket.

They are the Chinese remakes sold here around 8 years ago. Guitar wise.......down to two Les Pauls and one Schecter.

If you're looking for current racquets with some softness that run in the 12 oz. range, you'd be smart to take a look at the ProKennex Redondo mid-plus (maybe even the mid). I've been doing nicely with the Volkl C10 myself, but their other "10 series" models include the Power Bridge and Organix options.

Those were SMU oversize frames made in China.
