Head to Head
The Ezone 98 is the better option in terms of power and spin, with the Radical MP being the better option in terms of arm friendliness and control.
The biggest difference between the two rackets is probably in terms of power as you get a lot more power from the Ezone 98.
In my opinion, these rackets will best suit intermediate to advanced recreational tennis players, as they are relatively heavy frames will small head sizes that will require decent technique in order to get the most out of them.
Beginners are likely to find these rackets too heavy and unforgiving so they will be better off going with the lite versions (MPL and 98L).
