    I've heard on this forum that the MP (98sq in) version of the Prestige line are actually 95 sq in? If it is true, does the same apply to the Radical MP?

    Took a look at a LM4 the other day (it's a 102) and compared it to my Gamma Ipex 7.0 MP. It was basically a 98, but was a fraction of an inch longer at the base of the stringbed.

    I was looking a a Prince Graphite (new one) the other day and assumed it was the 100 sq in version. I looked at the side and it was actually the 93 so I got my MG Radical out and compared and the Prince 93 was slightly wider but ever so slightly shorter in the hoop. If I had to guess, the Prince was 2-3 sq inches bigger. Amazing. So I picked up the Ignite and the Rebel, both 95's and they were definately bigger.

    Camparing a Radical MP to a KBlade 98 is like comparing a MP to an oversize. How can there be so much disparity among advertised 98 sq in frames?

    I put the Prestige MP on top of a Wilson 6.1 95 and found that the heads were just about the same except that the Prestige had an extra sliver at the bottom (about the thickness of the bridge on the 6.1).
