    Hi guys,

    I just bought this racquets and took it for a test. Loved it at first sight.

    I had no idea until recently there was a Tour version of the LM Radical MP. The racquet feels so much different, more solid and stable, etc. (I'm not good at describing the playing characterictics of my racquets).

    Now I'm looking for exact specs and history of this. I assume it's similar to PT 280 (660). Was there anything in between. Any info would be appreciated?

    Thank you. So the weight is 325 unstrung vs 318g MP strung? This makes sense.

    Any idea about SW and stiffness?

    I think sw is around 338 and stiffness about 63. Its a sweet stick.

    It looks so clean. Do you play with it at all? :)

    yeah i did, the condition is probably 9/10 at the moment

    the reason why it looks clean is because i couldnt get used this racquet from the groundstrokes perspective. Initially i thought it was the 18/20 string pattern but i dont have such problems with the Redondo type C 98 sq inch.

    That's a nice racquet!

    I have an iRad that is modified beyond belief (great platform) and I prefer that, but your racquet plays pretty sweet stock.
