    So, last week I ordered a LM Radical from TW. It was between that one and the Dunlop M-Fil 300 and I chose the Radical, but then yesterday I saw that one of the guys on my team had an M-Fil, so I asked to use it. I played a few rallies with it and it felt really good and it was a real improvement over the cheapo Wilson I was using. He's selling it too, it's restrung and he wants to sell it for 80, I might be able to haggle down a bit maybe. What should I do, I still haven't tried the Radical because I want to be able to return it. I've basically just started serious tennis, on the highschool team

    I can't see the edit button on my message for some reason :confused: but I see that maybe my question isn't so clear, so I have a racket that I haven't tried that's still returnable, but I tried a racket that I like and is restrung, should I demo both, return the Radical and get the M-Fil, keep the Radical? I don't know if I will be able to demo. I'm mostly concerned with the spin potential of the Radical I read that because of the dense string pattern that it does not have much spin potential, but I really don't know what I want, should I go with spin right now or control I guess is my question?

    I hit with a LM Rad mp (not oversize) two days ago and it felt really good. Like... really good! I never tried to put tons of spin on it, but the guy who owns it hits a mean slice backhand, for what it's worth...

    thanks, maybe I might be able to learn with it, and I forgot to say that the Radical is an mp

    You haven't even tried your radical yet, and you're thinking of returning it? Try the radical. You'll find that it hits very well. Don't bother trying the M-fil 300. You'll just start wanting a racket that you don't have. Keep with your radical. It's a good, solid racket.

    Btw, you can get a NEW Mfil 300 for 80 bucks.
    So don't let that guy sell you a used one for 80...

    I got a NEW M-Fil 300 for 50 bucks. You really should get like 40 for it being used and all.

    give your lm rad a shot before you decide to get another racket. however, playing with both rackets before, imo i think the mfil 300 is a much easier racket to get into especially for a beginner wanting to improve quickly.
