    I am advancing begginer and I'm playing with i.radical OS at the moment, but I find this racquet very demanding and stiff. I really have to concentrate a lot to hit all the strokes effectively enough. I talk to the guy in a tennis shop nearby, and he recommended that I should try Head liquidmetal fire, because I will find it much easier to play.
    What do you think? Should I stay with i.rad?

    The fire is stiffer and has a smaller head. I don't see how it can be noticeably easier to play with if you're coming from an Irad OS. The fire will probably feel more muted and have a bit more pop so I suppose it can be easier to play with. You don't have a problem with the Irad's weight do you? I found the irad a little unstable but a little lead at 3 and 9 will actually make it less demanding because it stabilizes the racquet and opens up the sweetspot.
