    I have been using mostly Prestige and Radicals MP and lately i lost some confidence, looking if i can get something with the same control pattern just with a larger head size.

    Thanks

    You really only have a few choices: The Ozone Pro Tour, the Speedport White Pro, and the Microgel Instinct. The Instinct will probably play closest to your Radical, but with a power boost.

    I believe the Redondo MP is 98 sq. in. with an 18 X 20 pattern.

    you could try the Flexpoint Prestige Team...it's a 660 headsize and dense stringbed. lots of people crapped on the Flexpoint stuff, but i found this racquet to be a nice hit

    The Head Instinct frames are 18x19 string patterns and are 100 sq inches- that's pretty close.

    Is there really a noticeable difference between 98 and 100?

    100 Sq in heads tend to be more circular with 98 sq in heads more oval or egg shaped. Other than that there's not much difference when placed on top of each other for comparison.

    ^I agree. To me, there less difference between 95 and 98 as there is between 98 and 100 sq in frames.

    People are suggesting Dunlop 200 but it's still 95,
    Since Head is really 95 and not 98 i would like something like real 98+ sq inch..... maybe 100 and XL? 27.5inch

    no, and i dont even really see a noticable difference between a 98 and a 93. (from my flexpoint radical-to a kblade tour)

    i would recomend the kblade 98-if it plays like its sibling the kblade tour than its amazing too!

    Someone suggested the Redondo. Great frame, but not what you're looking for. The listed 98" is more like a 95" and the 93" Mid is more a 90"
