    I was wondering what's everyone's opinion in comparison of the two racquets. I'm considering purchasing one of them and the Liquid metal MP versions have similar specs with the exception of the prestige being a little heavier. Should i expect simmilar performance in the two?? I know both of them are highly regarded. Was just wondering what is the differnece between the two and which one would people consider better.

    The Radical is much lighter and stiffer, but it has a much more even response across its face compared to the Prestige. The Prestige has more feel, because of its flex, but that also takes away power. The flex and weight of the Prestige make for good volleying when you locate the sweet spot, but the Radical is very forgiving on where you hit the ball on the string bed.

    Both are good designs, but it is not likely that both would equally suit the same person -- if you hit with them, you will prefer one in a short time.
