    I have been having trouble deciding between the flexpoint prestige or radical. i know that the prestige is heavier and everything that goes along with that. i would really like to here feedback from people who have demoed one or owns one or who knows someone who owns one.

    Flexpoint prestige is actually kind've light. I would buy a liquidmetal instead of flexpoint though.

    i have demoed both the prestige and the radical and i would say tht the prestige is very powerful and can hit forehand like a rocket where as the radical is more of a controllable power racket good enough for all tyoes of players. if i was to get one though i think tht i would have to get the prestige.

    I also demoed both and liked the all around control of the radical. To me the prestige seemed more head heavy which I liked for serves, but didn't need on other strokes. Both are good tho - the best of the flexpt line.

    Prestige. Unless you can't handle the weight, get it. If it's too light for you, lead it up (mine is). Best of the flexpoint line, by far, and you have a lot to choose from. 93", 98" or 98 XL.

    I would say both are suited for the same type of game but for different level of player. If you think you are good then get Prestige, and if you are honest with yourself then get Radical :)
