The results of the search using the finding tool here are confusing to me, they cover all spectrum of specs - which cannot be right in my opinion.
Finally , I decided to try a Head Microgel Radical MP, reasonably priced ($89 new)
Any advice about this racquet?

This has been my match racket for the past two months (singles) and I really like it. Strung with a poly at 50, has decent power and I am accurate and confident with it. Sweet spot is still quite smallish which means I don't love it in doubles but in singles it is great. Serves are not particularly pacey but placement makes up for it. I find I am very confident hitting out with it but that is 18x20s in general for me recently. The near even balance makes it feel very solid for the weight.
