The Rad Pro is a great blend of power and control - it is great on the baseline and serves and is soft on the arm/elbow too.
I have been playing a lot more doubles recently and am switching to the Prestige MP for more maneuverability - perhaps the only downside to the Rad Pro is its relative sluggishness.
Definitely worth a demo.
Thanks Peedub---I've used at times the Radical MP - from a buddy I play with. I do find them to be solid dependable, reliable, but they just don't float my boat - but thanks anyway mate!

I've done it more than once just because I've always liked racquets with significant HL balance.
Any alternative frames with more flex will probably offer a bit more mellow response or less "pop" than your PD, but if a softer option is also a bit more hefty than your PD, it should still offer plenty of potential to thump the ball well for you. When I switched into my current Volkl C10's, they didn't have that same zip at contact that I got with my old 6.1 Classics, but their flex gave me much more freedom to swing out and not worry about spraying the ball off toward who-knows-where.
Yeah Fuzz, I got high hopes for the PS's - probably thinking I'll like the tour better, but we'll see!
