    I have demoed both in the last three weeks and found the Radical Pro to be a much more solid racquet. Greater spin, better feel, more control, softer touch, and just an overall better racquet by a great margin.

    IMO, the Extreme Pro felt like a Pure Drive Roddick but with a lot less feel and control.

    Of course these are my opinions based on my game....demo for yourself to decide.

    I have demo'd both: They are two different sticks. Depending on your style of play and if you like a flexable or stiff racquet.

    IMO which is my opinion:

    Power: EXP
    Spin: EXP
    Feel: Rad Pro
    Control: I had equal control with both though the EXP was strung with a poly.

    I ended up buying the Extreme Pro

    Compared to the PDR I found this a much better stick again for me.
    I would highly suggest that you demo both if you have the option.

    The only thing i found different was better spin with the rad pro and i played with it strung with fxp so i would imagine it would be even better with a poly. I was leaning toward the rad pro but they are both great. I found them both to have better control than the pdr. I found myself having to really watch my swing more with the pdr or the power would send it long.
