hey I was wondering if anyone has experience with the rad vs either of those two rackets....power, control, which you prefer, etc. Thanks guys!
I have played with and owned both in the past--what type of player are you and skill level?In my opinion both sticks are very customizable with low stock weights. And I'm looking at a bargain and it doesn't seem to get better than these 2 sticks on offer.
Anyone else have played with these 2 sticks and can share on the concerns I have?
Sweet thanks for the tip dude. But how about stability wise for the 200+? It is my main concern and my KSurge would have been ok if not for this.The LM is a stiffer stick than the 200 and it is noticeable. This also may be to the tighter pattern to some degree--but the 200 was very easy on the arm and has more room for customization than the LM for me.
The 200 has a LOT more bite on the ball. This was especially noticeable for me on sliced backhands--the shots off the 200 stay lower and deeper and bite more when they land.
Topspin goes to the 200 as well. I could hit the ball harder with the LM--but with less spin and I prefer the spin over the power.
I could serve harder flat serves with the LM in stock form--but there is so much more potential for kick on the second serve from the 200.
Add me to the list of people that had elbow/shoulder pain with the LM while I had no pain with the 200's even weighted up with 18 grams of lead on them.
In stock form, I'd go with the LM--but if you are capable and willing to play with lead and customize the sticks to your game, I would surely opt for the 200's.
I no longer use my 200's, but loved them while I did. And customized--I highly preferred them to the LM's...
Hope this helps
I have never hit with the kSurge--but the LM is more stable than the 200.Sweet thanks for the tip dude. But how about stability wise for the 200+? It is my main concern and my KSurge would have been ok if not for this.
I kinda have the idea that stock wise the Radical would be better to play as well. And I usually like to keep my lead customizations minimal or at least hidden as I like my rackets to look nice (haha vain I know). Seems that the LM could do with some lead in the handle to make it more headlight which I am used to and with the inherent weight and stability in the hoop not much is needed there at all.
As for the 200+, like I mentioned I think the current weight and balance seems right. But if it's lacking stability, I might have to add weight to both ends etc....
