    I am currently using a LM Radical mp that my Son does not like. I love it. I have the opportunity to aquire a Ti Radical mp. How would that play in comparision to the LM Rad. I find the LM has quite a lot of pop coming from the MG Pretige mp.

    the TI radical feels like a tweener, imho. very light racquet. i believe the LM is heavier.

    Yes, I also felt the TI was lighter swinging than the LM.
    Slightly better feedback though ...
    I think my favorite radical line was the I series (never tried the older twin tubes). It needed weight ... but boy did it have a great "feel"...even with poly in it.

    Ti Radical is a good racquet but just too light, it needs lead.

    The original bumblebees and twintubes were the best, from there on it went downhill. I believe the Ti Radical was the last real classical feeling Radical but they had taken the weight out.

    Thanks for the responces. I managed to get my hands on one today and it did not feel that much lighter to swing than the LM rad. Also has a nice look to it.

    this was the Agassi racquet, she makes your strokes better for 2 months before she destroys your game and you switch to a thinner model..I'll take my pc 600 over the MP ti anyday...

    The Tennis Warehouse review said the mp was reminiscent of the Pro Staff 85 and friendlier than the 6.1 - they pointed out that the sweetspot started getting generous at about 55 lbs. "a great control racquet"

    probably best suited to an all-court game. an elegant piece of cutlery.
