    Hi, there,

    Is there anybody having experience with Radical Mid+. I saw some around for sale. It seems very similar to Pro Tour 280 with identical 98in head size and 18x20 string pattern. Does it play like its sibling? I know it's less popular than its oversize version. How does it compare to Revelation 200g or MW 200g.

    Thanks

    It's a lot more powerful and stiffer than the PT280. I'm pissed; I missed two on **** today. Great racquet, definitely flew under the radar.

    curious

    OnyxZ28 ,

    I just won one on **** yesterday. Brand new for $35 shipped. it's like a steal.
    After demoing about 15 different rachets, I settled on Prestige Classic Mid. While my curiosity still lets me keep trying out some similar models from time to time. I hope Radical MP can give me some suprise. Thanks for your comments.

    I have one. I recently hauled it out for fun, it was only used a few times and so it' s i mint condition. It certainly looks and feels like a 280, just a couple mm thicker. It is noticably stiffer, though still not a really powerful racquet. I actually prefer it to the 280 for volley's, it's crisper. Off the ground, I prefer 280, but I could do fine with 260(maybe I would have to go tighter in strings). Nice racquet, good feel, good control, solid.

    HAHA, it came with a hideous black synthetic grip, with sort of yellow veins/lightning on it! I just took it off! After you put on a nice grip, it's actually very attractive and flashy with the yellow and black.

    Head shapes are different.

    I finally bought a PT 280. The racket head is actually longer and nerrower than the the Radical Tour 260(Trisys) . The beamwith is 20mm, 1mm smaller than the 260. If the LM prestige MP is the incarnation of PT 280, I wonder if it shares the same mold with LM radical MP. BTW, I have a Revelation 200g 95, it has a almost identical head shape and string pattern with PT 280. I guess in terms of racket design, one must be a copy of the other.
