    I am trying to buy a new racquet and was considering buying a flexpoint. But a lot of people still prefer Lm to Head's new technology. Is flexpoint really an upgrade from from Lm? And is it really worth the money?

    i also have that doubt.

    the fact is everyone says flexpoint is a crap.

    Tried FP Radical and didn't like it much. I'll try FP Instinct, more suitable for my game, and then see how it goes...

    Note that all pro's flexpoints are paintjobs.

    well... if you see it like that, most pro's nCodes are paintjobs too (for ex. Federer).

    I have been away from the board for awhile vacation and work. However I did an extensive search recently, re Tennis elbow issues. Played wellwith the AeroProdrive and the PD, good control with good technique great serving, however recurrent forearm tenderness made me rethink my rkt options. Liked the N Code 6.1 95 great serving rkt, but what has been discussed ad nauseum I think a slightly bigger head size allows you to stay in the point with better players and the 100 sq inch was perfect for me. So I did go with the Flexpoint tour the 100 sq inch size 12 + oz. So if those are the specs one likes not too many options that fit that and whether the technology works or not is irrelevent, it is how it plays

    Head's new Flexpoint racquets still incorporate Liquidmetal technology. I like neither of them.
