    Whenever I hit with my friends' Flexpoint radicals (most of the players of my age at my academy all play with a radical mp but concidentally they all want to change because they dont like it haha) it always feels like it's flexing in the head area, which I don't like. But whenever I hit with a wooden racket, it feels like its flexing in the neck area, which I like for some reason. Do all flexible rackets feel like theyre flexing in the neck or is it just the flexpoint? Please post comments thank you

    I hit an overhead the other night with my FXP Radical Tour and it really flexed, but i liked the feeling, it was like a slingshot.

    It depends on the racquet. For example, the POG flexes just right above the top of the neck.

    I would say the Flexpoint does flex somewhat when you hit hard.

    I agree with AJK1 that it feels like a slingshot when you hit right between the Flexpoints.
