Hi i'm a 4.0 player plays tournaments and college tennis. i like playing with a heavier frames. basically looking to buy a os racket with longevity and is good fit for my game. i have a huge serve and love taking the ball early and hard taking time away from opponent. My strongest part of my game is return of serve a racket that can help with that is a plus.

I'll be having this racket weighted up to 13oz most likely with an even balance.
i'm looking at the either.

Head IG Radical os
Wilson blx blade team

If any other suggestions or opions please let me know.

MG Rad OS ..... it's considerably less expensive than the IG Rad OS and more than likely plays very similar....

There was just a thread made about this recommending the Prince Warrior OS.

Sounds like you want to try out an extended length OS racquet. Haven't seen one of those since I've used my trusty Prince Chang Precision Extended Length racquet.

It was really light and I put some lead at 3 and 9 to stabilize the racquet.

I've helped one of my friend customized a Bab PD 107 GT as well. I think it weight around the 10oz's? and we made it to 12oz. I've hit with it stocked, and it was incredibly stable for a 10 oz racquet. Pumped it up with lead, it was a great racquet to hit against hard hitters although it reminded me of playing with a Wilson Profile very quickly.

Thx for all the feedback im looking in to all these rackets.

@coolblue123 extended length isn't a must but open to it as my coach and friends same and extended length frame might hinder my return game but i feel it wont.

I agree on this one. The MG can be had for 1/2 the price and it really is a great platform..

I've customized numerous OS, most important thing is that it not be too stiff, RA certainly no higher than 67. Once you start adding weight to something that's already fairly stiff and has a large head (!!!!!!) you simply won't be able to keep the ball in the court.
