I was wondering if anyone has bought the current pre-strung MG Radical (98) and noticed if its the same/different from the originals from 2008? The MG is an old favorite of mine and I was hoping to pick up one if they're the same feel/quality/etc.

i believe they're made in different factories, with the pre-strung ones being made in China and the early original release ones being either Austria or Czech Republic. someone with more knowledge can confirm

I have played with both. As someone mentioned above, the re-issue is stiffer and different feel. Get the original if you can

I got a couple and didn't really like them too much. Ended up moving on to the Babolat Pure Control 95, which I love. Thinner beam, plusher feel, more plow, etc.
