Has anybody played both of these rackets at the same time.
I have used each separately and cannot tell the difference.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
I am referring to the 107.

Thanks, Ken

LM Rad plays stiffer on center shots...you can definately feel the FXP soften on middle hits.. the balls flies deeper..more power but less control IMO.
They are both equal in all other facets except I did prefer lobbying with the FXP.. probably due to the sinking in on center hits. The FXP plays flexier even though they have the same RDC rating.
On ground strokes you need topspin on both to keep shots in. Slice is good on both as it manueverablility at the net.
Better feel with the FXP. Also the finish is better on the LM (metallic paint etc. on the LM which btw is made in China while the FXP is made in Czech Republic)

Overall I would chose the LM.

Just my .02

the FXP radicals are used to be made in Czech actually, you can still get them at some local stores.

I just demoed both of these racquets. To me the LM has a better feel. The FXP is very harsh especially if you miss the sweet spot. My arm hurt for two days after hitting with the FXP.

I can generate top spin easily with both, slices are good, and can get good pop with both on serves. Really it came down to feel as why I just ordered the LM from TW. Now I just have to find the right string and tension :D
