I need to replace an old 1984 Prince Graphite Comp Series 110 and the i-Rad OS looks the best option over the LM Rad OS and POG OS (due to the lower swingweight).

The only thing Im concerned about is the stiffness of the i-Rad OS. It rates as 62 which should be okay but I just wanted to check whether or not, when you play-tested it, you felt it to play far stiffer than the numbers would indicate.

If it felt about the same as the POG OS then it'd be a touch stiffer than I want but still managable.

Thanks very much

It's a touch stiff in the head but has a consistant sweetspot, no hotspots or surprises, deadspots. A bargain, far sweeter than the LM Radical. Seems until the Flexpoint technology, Head keeps stiffening the hoop. IMHO, bumblebee is the best of all at 12 oz strung.

Ronaldo,
Thanks very much for that input. Couldn't get it in the racquets section. I prefer the option of starting low with weight and swingweight and working up. Anyway, if it is a better choice than the LM version then I'll just put in an order and take it from there. Thanks again.

Owned all 6 versions of the Radical. LM killed my elbow but it really performed well. Flexpoint Radical Tour is a very sweet stick. All are a tad too light.
