This racket got terrific reviews. Nice weight (swing weight good for a 12 oz. frame). Flexible frame good for feel and joints. 100 Sq. inch head. Beam not too thick but thick enough for good power. Why is this frame disliked by a fair number of people? For me, it clearly has more feel than the LM Radical--probably due to the headlightness which I find makes topspin easier as well as some finesse shots. Why not more excitement about it? I've been using the Pure Drive, which I love. But, I've realized I've lost too much control on some shots that is costing me against certain players. I serve great with it and certainly hit big power groundies. Against most players, it's perfect. But against very consistent players who move well and get to my balls, I don't have the precision I need with the PD, so I'm seriously considering this frame. As Marius points out, getting away from the Pure Drive and the 70 stiffness will be good for my shoulder and elbow in the long term anyway--I'm over 40 now.
