    1. Head Liquidmetal Radical MP ( 98 )
    2. Babolt Pure Storm Team ( 98 )

    I used Bablot PureDrive Team+ before, but I feel it is too powerful and a little stiff to me. so that I tried my friend's pure storm, it feels good. but when I goto shop, the dealer told me it is out of stock now and recomm. liquidmetal radical mp to me. it also feels good when I swing it. The specs of these 2 racquets are very closed. who can give me some comments about these 2 racquets ?

    Both racquets you mentioned are good racquets. In terms of power and stiffness, I found the Storm packs more of a punch and is a little more stiff compared to the LM radical mp, but it's slightly less than the Pure Drive Team Plus.

    Out of the two, I would chose the radical. For me, it's a better serve stick, had more control, and more stability. There's also a big price difference too if you get it from TW.

    I think if you want more power, go with Babolat Storm - Radical is less powerful IMO. Also, if you like a spin friendly racquet, go with Babolat Storm (16 main strings vs. 18 main strings for Head LM Radical).

    You need to demo the two rackets. Overheads serves running forhands, running backhand, half volleys, volleys not just long ralleys at the baseline.
