    Which frame would be better for my ubar topspin forehand? If the Radical, should I get the midsize or the OS. If the Prestige, should I get the mid or midplus?

    If neither, what players' racquet do you recommend.? I used the HH 5.3 but I don't like it. It is too powerful for me now. It was a great racquet for a 12 year old but I'm 16 now and I can curl a horse so I don't need any power. My strongest points are my whip-spin forehand and my "whippersnapper" backhand.

    Hmm... I think its kinda hard to say. My friend has an i.prestige MP and I use a radical MP and I think the two are very much alike. I have heard that the OS version of the radical gets more spin vs the MP, but I think the MP is more control based and probably not ideal for someone who depends on alot of spin. For me the i.prestige was a little heavy but the feel was great. To me I think the radical mp is the perfect balance of power and control. I heard the new prostaff tour 95 is a great racquet and the string pattern is ideal for alot of top spin. But don't take my word for it, try them for yourself and see what you think.

    I don't use a lot of pace but I hit deep balls @ the baseline with some monster kick. I can keep people 5-8 feet behind the baseline with my medium-pace, high-spin forehand. I need somthing to compliment that while allowing me to keep my control.

    Ti. Radical mp or os is wonderful and a great platform to add weight if needed.

    Meh, I don't really want to buy an old frame. Kids were using Ti.Rad's back in 2000 on the junior circuit.
