    Has anyone tried both the Flexpoint Radical Tour and the Flexpoint Prestige Mid+...can you describe their differences and overall preference...
    also... these are pretty hefty and if you know any other very good rackets which are around 11- 11.8 oz that you have tried, please post.

    I've tried both of these racquets and I really like their 12-oz heft. The Radical Tour is certainly more powerful than the Prestige MP but I like how the latter feels on hits. So I give the edge to the Prestige.

    Ageed. The rad tour with overgip and elastic band came in at 370 gramms. Too much for me. Nice racket and has a real hot spot in the sweetspot.

    Back to the original question


    Any comparison between the rad tour and FXP Prestige MP?

    I am interested as well.

    I've hit with the radical tour for about an hour only.

    The radical tour was much more flexible and maybe more spin potential
    than my current FXP prestige MP. I feel like I have a bit more
    control with my prestige, though...

    Thanks fastdunn!
    What would you say the difference were in swing weight between the two? Headlight comparisons?
