    Probably the Liquidmetal version. The oversize versions stood out more among their respective category.

    i.Rad ---> LM Rad ---> ti.Rad
    all with lead.

    would the lm radical OS suit a 3.0 player?

    reccomended tension is 54-64, so 59 pounds would be a happy medium. i would reccomend prince syn. gut original or duraflex if you want something stiffer and more durable. some will probably reccomend gosen og sheep, but i've never tried it.

    So does everyone seem to favour the LM versions over the FlxP. Because I am seriously considering trying some out and maybe buying one

    A LM Radical OS broke on me while stringing and it was not at a high tension. It was only the second stringing on that racquet for that HS girl player. Her dad returned it to the big box store where they bought it, and it appeared to him that breakage of that model had occurred to other customers there.

    Perhaps that is an isolated situation???

    Prince TT Warrior OS. Pretty similar racquets with slight differences in static weight and swing weight.

    I actually did like FXP better than LM when I hit with it once. It's very comfortable frame. Same for FXP Rad Tour.

    gosen og sheep micro are pretty nice strings. i had some 17 g on my flexpoint fire when i had it. but i traded it for a lm radical mp. right now i have some prince tournament 15L on my radical. great durable string. but the person i traded with didn't know the tension. im guessing mid range or so.

    The Flexpoint Radical Tour is the best of the lot of them. I have 3 now, and wouldn't use anything else.

    will the Radical line be discontinued? i know the basic traits they all share will still stay around, maybe under a new name, but will they keep calling them radicals, since agassi is gone?
