Hey, I just broke my old racquet and i need some help choosing a new one.
The thing is that one of my friends lent me his racquet (i rad OS) and actually i really liked it. But when I came to see the test results of the radicals here in TW, i realize that the intelligence technology is the worst between int, liquidmetal and flexpoint.

My questions are:

1) The lm OS is much more powerful than the i rad OS??? It has better control???
2) Which one is better: Lm MP or OS???? Can I have enough power with the mp??? According to the TWs results, the Lm MP is way more better, is it really true???
3) Is Flexpoint technology worth for a try????

For your information, Im a baseline player who has a fast swing style, hits 90% of the time flat shots, ocassionaly serve n volley and a two-handed backhand.

If you can, demo all 3 technologies and see which one you like best. Just because TW doesn't give a racquet the best review doesn't mean that you can't use it. If it works for you, then that's all that matters.

Racquet technologies these days like Intelligence, Liquid Metal, and Flexpoint are 95% a marketting gimmick and 5% function (I'm being generous).

None of the 3 racquets are superior or inferior because of the "technology", but they will definitely feel 'different' from each other.

Just don't give in to marketting gimmicks. It's not true that new generation racquets are better than the older ones (within 5-10 years or so). They CAN be, but mainly it's just the company trying to maximize their profits by selling you a new fangled technology that really doesn't do anything new.
