    "18x20 is Midplus (98 sq in) "

    Not on a Radical OS -- 110. Unless I missed something (quite likely), this is string pattern, right?

    Solidly in this club for 2 months now. Really loving 4G in the mains and OGSM crosses at 52/54.

    Trying Tour Bite and Stamina at the same tension to see if I can save some money, but I love the control and durability of 4G.

    Bundey,
    Wow, this is still strong. Love to see some guys stil passionate about the 18/20 feel. Wonder how many are still here and still in.
    I loved this pattern a few years ago, but in 2013 I switched to the Aerostorm tour, the pure control tour, and then the Strike 98 with 16/19.
    If this is still active, I ought to be removed or called inactive. I was number 31.
    Thanks,
    sbc

    the speeds have a low launch angle, more so than the prestiges.

    Youtek IG radical MP. Been playing with it for almost a month now.
    Stringing up the Youtek IG Speed 315 and comparing the two next month.
    I never played with the Speed; bought it used with dead poly in my second year of beginner tennis 2 yrs ago. Cut it out and just put it away.
    Love the depth and "heavier" shot the Radical gives compared to my usual PS100l according to my hitting partner.

    Since about 2 months owner of:
    Völkl PowerBridge 10, 98 inch, 18x20, 325 grams. Still experimenting with string setups, but will probably end up with multi/syngut fullbed or multi mains and poly crosses.

    5 x BB 11 MP 350g 18/20. Not sure what i'm going to do when I can't find these anymore. Hit with a lot of other frames and none have come close to this stick.

    Does 18x19 count? (only one frame with this pattern AFAIK:D)

    BTW, I have 3 x Head Flexpoint Prestige MP.

    Has anyone here experimented with not stringing the last cross at the top of the racket head? Curious to see how it would play.

    My pair of 2014 Six One 95 18x20 get played most by far. Love them.

    To me they are pretty similar as far as power and spin. I get much better results serving with the Blade. I get more spin on kick serves with the Blade and my flat serves have more pop to them. I use Prince Duraflex SynGut in both of them. Slice backhands are equal to me and I give the Blade the advantage on my two handed backhand.
