    Hi all,

    Thinking of adding a pair of these to my collection. Inspired by YouTube Agassi videos! Anyway, I have an opportunity to go down either option.
    Specs are very similar.

    The i.radical OS seems to have a solid rep and the newest IG Radical OS is apparently the best for a long time. Might even be able to get hold of Twin Tube Zebras.

    Views?

    I like the current IG radical OS much better than the original Radical Trysis 260 OS. The BIG difference to me is maneuverability.

    Twin tube Zebras are over 12 oz. They swing much heavier than the last 5 generations of the Radicals. They have plow-thru like no other stick though!!

    Thanks guys. The TT sound like they are POG OS weight which is not too bad for me. Any of you have experience with the i.radical OS?

    Also, how are you stringing the IG Radical OS to avoid to much trampoline effect?

    If you can find them, go for the iradical OS. More room for customization.

    And better street cred, :)

    Just string above 58 lbs for multis and above 54 lbs for polys. These sticks are not that powerful, just a bigger sweetspot racquet.

    The ig radical OS doesn't really have that much 'more' power. Just a small amount more. The larger sweetspot makes a nice difference because you hit the sweetspot easier and more often than a 98.

    I string mine with a multifilament at 45 lbs. killer spin and just the right amount of power. Has a little more power than a youtek prestige pro.
