Head Graphene 360 Radical S Tennis Racquet
The HEAD Graphene 360 Radical S tennis racquet is back and better than ever before. Graphene has been added to the 3, 9, 12 o'clock positions and in the throat, making this Radical S the most stable, powerful and arm-friendly racquet line ever. The Graphene 360 gives the Radical S better energy transfer, creating more power on every hit.
The Radicals grip has changed as well, to a more rounded and classic feel. The more modern and simplistic aesthetic lends itself to less distraction and easier focus and concentration. Coming in a 102 sq. in. head size, this 297 g/10.5 oz strung tennis racquet is powerful. Similar in feel to its brother the Speed, the Radical S is flexible(63 RDC strung), precise and provides excellent energy transfer.
Every one of our playtesters noticed the increased solidity and stability right off the bat. The Radical S is easy to swing, precise and solid. The new Radical line reminded everybody of the Speed series in its overall feel. The Radical S comes with a huge amount of spin, more than any other radical before it. The ball flight and drop was superb. Serving came easy. The Radicals make it easy to get around the ball, scalpel-like in its precision. Mishits were dampened thanks to Graphene 360, saving your arm and staving off injury.
We noticed that the S could benefit from some lead tape at the 3 and 6, this could be unnecessary depending on the player's strength. However, the Graphene 360 Radical S's solidity is greater than other racquets in its weight tier.
Overall the Graphene 360 Radical S is an excellent option for players looking for a lightweight, powerful and spin-friendly racquet. Just as whippy as ever before, you won't have trouble getting around every ball.
