Head updates the Radical S with Graphene XT, giving this light and explosive stick a more optimal distribution of weight. The result is a racquet that provides even easier access to power. With its 102 square-inch head, the Radical S boasts a larger sweetspot than the standard Midplus Radical, ensuring that performance doesn't significantly drop off when contact is less than perfect. Control is excellent thanks to the Dynamic String Pattern which features tighter string spacing in the contact zone for more directional control. From the baseline this version of the Radical S feels lighter and faster than its predecessor, making it perfect for strong beginners and developing intermediates who want easier access to pace and spin. Our playtesters were particularly impressed with the accuracy on full swings - a benefit that translates into confidence when trying to finish points. At net this racquet's light weight makes it very easy to maneuver when the pressure is on. Our team found it very effective on fast exchanges and reaction volleys. The maneuverability also comes in handy on service returns where this stick comes around with impressive speed to deliver a very accurate and easily controlled ball. Head has made an impressive update to one of their lightest Radicals. This is a great option for the player who wants the control of a great player's racquet without the weight.
