    I like the LM Prestige MP, but prefer the LM Radical's extremely even response across the racquet face. The LM Radical is a little light and stiff for my taste and I wonder if the PT 280 will have the weight and flex of an LM Prestige MP, but with a little more power and a more even response across the face?

    If you have experience with all 3, I would appreciate your feedback.

    I think you are on the right track. Agree the LM Rad is too light, the LM Prestige has more weight and is quite flexible (I still think its too light) and is a solid stick overall. The PT 280 has slightly more weight, will give you more slightly power, and is more flexible than even the LMP. The currently availble versions seem to be a little heavier in the head than the first ones. PT280 = a flexible stick, 12 oz, 6-8 pts HL compared to LM Prestige 11.9 oz, 8-9 pts HL (from what I recall). And they are cheap too ($60) so its not a racquet you'll hate yourself for spending on if you dont like it.
