HEAD's famous racquet gets even more technological advances than ever before! Introduced last year on the Speed and Instinct lines, this new frame technology is now incorporated into the Radical series. HEAD re-engineered the application of the world’s strongest and lightest material to make their Graphene XT racquets 30%* stronger providing an optimized weight distribution for a faster swing and more power. By using graphene XT in the racquet shaft, HEAD has been able to move weight from the shaft to the tip and handle, increasing power and stability without changing overall racquet mass (more weight in the head provides greater plow through from the baseline, and more mass in the handle reduces torque and recoil). The Graphene XT Radical S Tennis Racquet is a versatile weapon for player seeking the optimal combination of power and control. This frame is centered around offering a bit more forgiveness than the Pro and MP, allowing more players to feel the unique tour playing characteristics of the Radical line. Its 102 square inch head size allows it a larger sweet spot and forgiving string bed while still being capable of providing plenty of power. Although it 9.9oz (unstrung) weight may seem light, Graphene allows the weight to be redistributed in a manner that imparts a solid and stable feel on contact. The racquet also retains a head light balance, giving it a light and fast feel that players of a wide range of abilities will enjoy. Head also incorporates its new Dynamic 16/19 string pattern. This pattern puts eight main strings in the heart of the racquet, giving it an optimal blend of tight pattern control and open pattern spin generation and forgiveness. Intermediate players and stronger players seeking a lighter frame will enjoy the Graphene XT Radical S for its comfortable, easy feel and quality blend of power, control and forgiveness.
