    Dunno, i know the LM Radicals use twin tubing as well, but other than that and the Ti Rad, not too sure really.

    Well, because they share the same mold as the Rad Tour TT, the i. Prestige and PT 280/630 are therefore 'related', so there are some similarities. I'd also hazard a guess that the LM Rad Tour (the heavier one) and the Flexpoint Rad Tour might share a few traits. Perhaps also, as the Rad Tour TT has such a distinctive flexy, catches-the-ball-releases-the-ball, pocketing sensation, if you were talking just about flex/ball pocketing, the Volkl C10 Pro comes to mind, and maybe the BB11 mid, and basically many rackets with that distinctive flex/pocketing. Lastly, if you read back on Doc Hollidae's posts (Doc being the Radicals enthusuiast who created this thread), you'll see he moved on to playing with Prince frames (I'm not sure which exactly), but I imagine whatever they were they would be slightly akin to the Rad Tour TT he used to play with and love so much.

    All that said however, the bottom line is: I'd say they are all very different still.

    I should've added myself earlier.

    By the way, how does the MG radical MP hit? It looks like a solid frame. Tempting at 57 RA.

    Is it as flexy and comfy as the FXP rad tour?

    I've been fooling around with an mg rad mp for a few weeks. Great racquet. I sold my fxp rad tours. They were comfy from the baseline but they were string eaters and the bulby head was annoying me. The mg control is amazing and much more agile at net. I prefer soft string at low tension. Poly seemed to amplify the lack of power, making the racquet feel like it was breaking under a heavy ball but with multi the feel is great. Great serving racquet. Tons of headspeed and does not tire the arm. This racquet does everything well. It definitely does not hit the heaviest ball in the world but its ok because the feel and control is so good.

    I play with the trisys 260, 95, and 98 tt mipluses radicals from time to time. Love them love them love them. They are indeed very sweet bats.
    One of these days, i'll have them with all same string and tension to see which one i prefer most. One thing is for sure, i love these even more than their blue brother, the Pro tour 630/280.

    Used the flexpoint radical for a year, then the microgel extreme and now happily using the flexpoint again.

    Bulby, yes, scary thought! ;)

    Anyway I skipped the fxp rad, had a hit, just didn't like it.

    I'd stuck with the LM Rad through to the MG, which I feel needs a lot of lead and then it really flexes and is very comfy - and starts to hit a heavier ball. It's not in the league of naturally heavier frames, and anything you do with lead changes the fundamental nature of how the frame will flex and return to shape, but it does hit some heavier groundstrokes. As you are used to the tours surely you want to add some weight?

    Hae a hit with the MG Rad Pro. I was given the impression it was much heavier. Well it isn't. It is a string eater. but it's got the hrosepower you may want...

    I'm looking forward to the prices going down on the mg radicals. I'll probably scoop up a couple of those. Anyone here excited about the new Youtek rads?

    i like the mp over the pro. the pro plays/feels like an OS to me. summer is coming and i want to play every day. no need for poly and no broken strings every day also makes me like the mp more. with leather and low tension the mp is playing great for me. my serve is much more consistent.

    I'm in!

    I've owned and played with the following Radicals:
    Trisys 260
    Ti Radical
    Intelligence Radical
    Liquid Metal Radical

    My favorite by far is the Intelligence series. Just now converting from the OS to the MP size and love it. Long live Radicals!!!

    Count me in!...After testing several frames for a while (Head iPrestige, Dunlop AG 200, Head Prestige Pro, Head Pro Tour 280, Head Radical Pro, Head FXP Radical Tour) I´ve decided to go with the MG Radical MP, after adding some lead on the grip this racquet just feel fantastic.

    I really wanna get a Radical Pro but the price is a little too high! Haha! I hope when the new radical is out the MG radical pro's price will drop.

    I guess you can add me to the list. I am a Tecnifibre guy, but just got a couple of Radicals. I ordered the LM Radical on a whim -- I don't know why, but it just spoke to me. Should get here next week. Today, my new AA Limited Radical OS came in. I have been thinking of adding one of these to my collection *just because* :) Found one in 3/8 at a great price, so I finally pulled the trigger. I will be working out a friend today, returning his serves, so it is perfect timing.

    I have been playing with the rascal tour MP (630 cm sq) Twin Tube for a couple of weeks. It has great control and plenty of power. It seems much stiffer than my classics, e.g., Yonex R22, Head Graphite Edge, Prince Comp 90, Dunlop Max Pro.

    Check this out....just bought a Radical Liquid Metal MP from a friend for $25.00. Played with it tonight and love it. I actually won my league match with it.

    He has three more of the same stick he's going to sell me for $25.00 a piece. These things are practically brand new. Four radicals for $100.00.....What a sweet hookup!

    Anyway, thought I'd share that with you. Long live the Radicals....

    The first one I bought had the black end cap. Doesn't that mean it's China made?

    By the way, what's the difference in the two? Thanks!

    OK got word that Head will have the new Rad retail in July in Australia and personally I can't wait to give the d3o a tryout, though making a purchase could be heft.

    Since the Speed Pro in Aus will retail for $429AUD. Scary. The Rad will be cheaper than that but still well over the psychological barrier of $300AUD. That's a third of the av weekly Aus wage, so not too terrible, but it seems like racqs costing relatively more again.

    I would still like some help with the T.Carbon racquet. and btw, i am a radical guy. my first real racquet was the Ti Rad OS, then went to LM Rad (because the Ti frame cracked :( ). then I bought 3 Twin Tube Tour OS Rads online (the racquets say XL, but are still only 27in long). I obviously love radicals and OS racquets

    ^^ Hi J011y, sounds like y'v spent less time with an MG Rad or Pro than you have with other frames, so yes if you get a chance to give the new YT Rad or Pro a twirl please do and report back what you find even if unfavourable.

    (If you look at the Speed then that deserves a diff thread as it is just Rads/Pro here.)

    I'm looking to change sticks from a Head Ti 6000 to a LM Radical.
    The Ti 6000 was a gift when i first started tennis and after 2 years it is now cracked, never let your doubles parter use your racket.

    So any feedback about this :)

    I felt I lost less comfortable with the LM radical, especially on serve. Maybe it was the tiny grip size (was 3/8, but felt ridiculously small)

    I have had very mixed opinions told to me about the power of this racket.

    Some say that you have to generate your own power while others say it has good power.

    Maybe it is just the player preference of power but would it be worth it to add lead tape if power felt to low ?

    I think it depends on how you string it, I still don't have the stringing correct and am looking for some advice. It seems like I keep strining it too tight, IMO you want a soft string, I am going to try Unique Big hitter again and SS in this racket, low power strings suck in this racket IMO.

    How does this Racket (LM Radical) perform against higher end rackets

    Is it a good investment ?

    i loved my LM Rad, the only thing though is since its on the older side now it might get boring. i used it for a year, won a summer tourney w/it, got new racquets, and am now just picking it up again to hit with after about a year. when it comes down to it, its a great racquet and investment( compaired to >$150 for any other newish racquet)

    thats weird, I feel very very comfortable with the LM radical. Whenever I pick up another stick it just doesn't feel right

    can you guys compare the old twin tube radical with the Ti Radical for me?

    I really like the control and comfort/flexibility of the twin tube frames.

    my cousin has an old ti.radical that he's gonna get rid of, so I might buy it off him for cheap.

    Just found LM radical MP for 29 bucks it was mislabeled in one of the stores in NY city. I hit with it yesterday and what a surprise the stick is awesome. I am an apdc user but yesterdays hit might make me switch. Really really good stick apdc has big sweet spot so that is usually where I feel the difference hitting with other sticks with western fh but lm rad performed great

    OK that's quite a good deal. The Rad is more of a control racquet (relatively, than APDC), but swing it Western with enough gusto and it becomes quite attacking with laser-like accuracy. I don't do too bad with it on clay(!) where W grip is more required so I know what you mean. Generally, I'm on artificial grass and the Rad is - is radical enough!

    I say I say, man walks into a bar, says "gimme a radical", drinks it, bartender says "another?" Man says: "that was radical enough for mmmrnnfph" falls off stool.

    I owned a LM Radical Midplus for a while but sold it to a friend because he broke his racquet... and it later got destroyed.

    I just got a Radical Tour Twintube Oversize and I like it a lot.

    Still loving the Agassi LE Radical

    Given the ongoing popularity of this thread, I just thought I'd contribute again to say how much I still love the Radicals. I picked up the Agassi LE Radicals when they came out for a bit of nostalgic old school feel (after playing for years with the iRads and LM Rads) and was hooked - they're just so forgiving, solid and powerful. I keep trying new racquets, like the Extreme Pro, but nothing matches the combination of feel and power from the Rad. In fact I've tried an awful lot of racquets over the years (POG oversize, Prince NXG, Pro Kennex 5G and 7G, Prestige MP, Fischer M-Speed 98, Extreme Pro) and always rapidly come back to the Rad.

    So the Agassi LE is my favourite but could happily play with any Rad oversize. Has anyone got tips on how to lead up one of the lighter current Rads to handle like the Agassi LE? About 20g of lead, mostly round the handle?

    It was nice to see Agassi back at Wimbledon today, faithful old Radical (with shiny new paintjob) in hand. And he still had enough to beat Tim Henman!
