Hi all!!

After many testings, I'm currently playing with the MSpeed 98 SL (old version) and I'm looking for a 2nd racquet to have in my bag. As I can't find any at $99,99 as it use to be (if someone know it just let me know!!)... I'm thinking on another price wise option with similar specs. My choice is between

FXP Radical tour
Radical Agassi LE OS
POG OS
Or a MSpeed 105 SL... if someone test it how does it play compared with the 98? :confused:

or going for some used (as I can't find a decent used mspeed here)
FXP Prestige
Prince O3 tour
Volk DNX9

What do you think?? another price wise option??
Playing details 4.0 player, baseline, heavy shots, I prefer playing short points than rallies.
What I like from the mspeed, the feel, control and confort.

Are in interested in a heavier racket? Ex. Dunlop M-fil 200? Or you can try the M-fil 300.

If you want to test a 105 out I'm going to post 1 for sale. I'll probably post it on Monday.

I've read most people say that the 105 is more powerful and a little more flexible.

One thing I especially like about the 105 is that it doesn't swing like an OS frame.

Just curious as to where you're located and what grip size you're hunting in the Fischer. I've seen a couple in my circle lately and I can check if any are available.

If you've never tried the Flexpoint Radical Tour, it's a neat racquet, but it's a little bit different from the M-Speed with its extra flexibility as well as its extra heft. The Radical is hilarious for dealing heavy spin from the baseline while I find the M-Speed to be more evenly competent at every phase of the game. The extra flex in the Radical gives it a little less authority at the net and serving for me while the Fischer can pop those shots nicely with its wider, firmer hoop.

Just wanted to point that out because you said you are a baseliner and that Radical may be great for you. Nice pricetag at TW, too. If you are going to demo some gear, I'd also recommend a look at the DNX 9 among the ones that you listed.

Based on your list I'd say you can immediately narrow down your choices by answering 2 questions: 1. Is oversize a must to you (i.e. DNX 9 / Flexpoint Prestige vs. Prince Original Graphite / Radical LE)? 2. Do you prefer classic or modern touch/feel (i.e. Radical LE / Prince Original Graphite vs. Flexpoint Radical Tour / O3 Tour)?

I'm going to take a slightly different route than everyone else on this thread. I think the only second racquet worth having is another one of your "first" racquet. Before getting something different than it, I'd do a much more exhaustive effort to get another one of your same racquet, either used or new. Even if you have to exceed your budget a little, it's worth it. But make sure you post what you're looking for everywhere and search everywhere you can. You're getting to a level now, where having a dependable consistent response from your racquet will be more important, and you may even break a string now and then. The last thing you need to to be forced to pick up something different mid-match.

At the very least, you might want to figure out the specs of your racquet and all the ones you're considering, and choose the one closest to the M Speed. Then customize it with lead tape to match.

HI!, well answering your questions,
1. oversize is not a must.. I have always played with 95 or 98 inch. Just for a while used a i.Radical OS but just as a second as I loved my Pro Staff but It broke my arm..
2. I like both.. but a must is having a good feel of the ball.

thanks!

Hey, I agree with you.. also when you are in a bad day, you can blame your gear.. but if both are the same.. man you are having a bad day and can´t be your racquet.. I'll keep searching the web..

Thanks!
