Differences between Youtek IG Extreme 2.0 Pro and Youtek IG Radical Pro?
 
In the market for a smaller head size racquet, coming from a Liquidmetal Radical OS, strung with poly.

Looking at both of these Head racquets, what are the differences between the two? What kind of play style would each racquet benefit?

Both racquets are baseline bashing sticks, although the Rad Pro would be ok for doubles as well. Main difference is head size and control- extreme is a true 100 sq inches while the Rad Pro is closer to 96 sq inches (not 98 as advertised), and the Extreme has more power, the Rad Pro has more control.

I have played both frames very much this summer in a test for the swedish tennis magazine and I fell in love with the IG Extreme Pro so much I actually have ordered it to use as weapon during the indoor season.

The Rad Pro is very very soft in the flex. It has good power for such a small headsize and flexible frame and the touch is outstanding.

The Extreme Pro 2.0 is very crisp in the feel but they have also managed to reduce a lot of the vibrations. It has such a great feel, power and spin but at the same time a really good control for such a high power frame.
