    I´ve been using a Volkl Catapult 1 ( 120 inch), and want to get a new raquet as I have been improving my tennis, a little.
    Please give me an advise about what of these models are better.

    I am about 3,5 player, may be 4. I am 44 years old, take lessons 3 times a week. Most of the time I play from the base line but start to going to the net.
    Serve just with slice, not very fast but with good spin. Just want to get better and I was thinking that the catapult was good for a while, now is time to get a new raquet.
    Any suggestion ?
    Thanks

    I thought the catapult V1 OS was 110 inch?

    If you want to stay OS- POG OS, any of the radical series OS, nblade OS are all good OS control frames.

    he's only 3.5, i think he should stay away from the nblade. even the n6.1 95 is less demanding that that thing.

    Getting back to your question, I've demoed both and preferred the FP Rad OS. There's a learning curve with it and you'll need to spend some time with it, but it has a soft feel that's appealing and seems to really flex palpably, moreso than a few other FPs I hit with. Hits a fairly heavy, spinny ball. The PD 107 is actually a major improvement over the PD 110 but is still fairly harsh even with "cortex" and a little harder to keep balls in play compared with the FP.
