Decent powered 18x20 or 16x20 frames?

    I think Fischer really had something in that department. I have a Magnetic Comp 95 and though it has an open pattern I'd say it has better pinpoint control than my Prestige MP and returns nearly as well. It is more demanding and it takes even better prep than the prestige though (I use it in warmups and sometimes doubles). I'm assuming that Fischer/Pacific's higher powered frames will have a similar (unexpected) level of control considering the power potential of the frame. Pacific has taken over production of Fischer frames so perhaps demo a few in their line?

    For 16x20s, have you ever tried any of The Pure Storms (Standard and Tour)? Definitely worth a Demo.

    My favorite 18x20 of all time is the black and gold BLX Blade 98.

    YES - this racket has more power than specs say it should.

    How would you compare F3.0's power to other frames?

    That's okay. I wouldn't consider the MG Radical to be a power racquet unless you add some considerable weight.

    Mike just get the Blade 104 and call it a day. Its 18x19 and hits
    A nice low trajectory flat ball when you want.
