Which Radical is better?

IG radical? Wow. The MP was or is excellent, the pro I played with (in retail and prostock) wonderful, but even the OS and the S were very nice frames. Last awesome Radical series

I played with both the Youtek Rad Pro and the IG Rad Pro over the course of several USTA seasons, so I can't compare the MPs specifically. I preferred the Youtek - more spin, more pop, bigger serves. The IG is actually a 95 inch square head and was a bit softer/more muted, better control. If you want more control and/or play a lot of doubles, I could see the IG being a better choice for you. If you want more power and a crisper feeling - the Youtek is a better choice.

would vote for the lm radical even it wasn´t the question. lm rad has classic feeling, ig rad already pretty crisp and modern.

I agree with djnemo.
The ig pro was a nice racquet and I used it for a good year but felt it was a little too flexy for me that I could not get out what I put into it. The DR 98 reminds me of the ig pro but a tiny more stiffer.
The youtek radical pro was a tad more stiffer than the ig pro but still comfortable with more spin potential and power.
I also played with the first graphene radical pro for a couple of years which I really liked, power spin control and still comfy enough for me not to cause elbow issues.
I tried briefly the graphene MP and I had a total different feeling, I did not like it at all. Felt boardy and under power. Maybe there were some bad string on it.
