    LM Radical MP received an overall score of 83. That's the highest I've seen.

    Yeah. And two of the playtester team switched to the LM Radical after that review.

    In my opinion.... ... .. Better not to speak.

    same experience (didn't like it), and i was aware of the two testers changing racquets afterward..

    loved the NCODE 95 on recent demo.

    The TW Holy Grail racquet received the best review ratings. Perfect scores across the board.

    Thinking about the TW playtesters scores... Do they get outdated?

    I mean... a rating of 80 in a 5 year old frame will not be the same as an 80 of an actual frame... what do you think? I don't know if this has been discussed before

    Honestly Everyone is different every raquet wil feel different in another persons hands if we were all the same then there wouldn't be lots of brands there would be just one tennis racquet. just because teh testers in the review like it doesn't mean u will like it.......

    hard to see a 92 sq inch racquet getting 87 on slice. and then 72 on top spin... then the overall score being higher than EVERY catogory except 1.

    wonder how TW scores their racquets... o well, i dont pay much attention to it anyways.

    Ronaldo,

    Nice find. Dont you think its a bit funny to have a 28inch racquet listed with a rating of 93 for manoeuverability and an 83 for volleys? I just cant imagine that any racquet of that length could do justice to those numbers.

    ...and only a 73 rating for serves? This is supposed to be one of the primary benefits of an extended length racquet...greater leverage for serving.
