Head Graphene Touch speed or Head Microgel Radical?

Hi guys. I am thinking to get a new racket and can't decide between Head Graphene Touch speed S or Head Microgel Radical MP. These two cost what would be the highest I can afford right now.

There is a high chance I would not be able to play test these rackets or even go to stores. I would have to buy online. I wanted to know if anyone has played with these sticks who can share his/her experience with these sticks, good or bad.
I am looking for a racket with feel on ground strokes and stability on serve. I am a USTA 4, Righty OHBh. If u could suggest me any other racket that would be Gr8 too.

Which Radical MG? MP or OS? The Speed Touch S is a very different racket compared to the Radical MP Microgel (the one that has the closest specs, sort of). I would take a look at Prestige Touch (Pro, MP or Tour), those are on sale now and can be found for around the 120$ mark, unstrung.

Head radical MP.
OK I would take a look on Prestige touch too.

I have both the Radical MicroGel MP and the Prestige Touch MP. Both heavily leaded with headheavy balance. With this setup both feel great (for me!), with the Radical feeling as a slightly softer frame. I have played with the Prestige Touch for more than 2 years (almost 3 I believe) and I really like it. But I have to admit, I don't dare to try my old Radicals again :D.

Hey thnx for the input.
I searched for Prestige touch, Really like it's specs but unfortunately it's out of my budget right now. Definitely will keep an eye on it next time I decide to buy.

Have u also played with Head Youtek IG Radical Team? Is it similar to Microgel Radical MP in terms of softer feel?

Ok. Keep in mind that buying twice, even if its cheaper will be more expensive then buying just once and hopefully buying "right". No I have not played with the "Inegra D3O" Radicals. I had a Speed MP "Inegra D3O", it played OK with lead. But I never got "used to the bigger frame size and more round shape", so I went back to the MicroGel Radical MP's. I think that the Prestige "Inegra D3O" (I believe this is the one referred to as IG) is a softish feeling frame. If its softer than MicroGel I do not know. I have the feeling/sense that IG Presitges are pretty popular still, I did testplay the Mid (or was it MidPlus, it was the one with 330 g unstrung and 18/20, metallic red frame color mainly). I liked it but I never bought any since I allready had the Speed MP IG.

just buy some used rackets. You can find some amazing rackets in thrift stores, the bay, or even the for sale section.
