A re-engineered graphene material that is now 30% stronger. Providing an optimized weight distribution for a faster swing and added power.
I prefer the slightly larger mid size head at 102 sq. inches, which provides a slightly larger sweetspot. The Radical S is a nice ‘tweener option without the Radical family. The racquet itself felt really light in my hands, allowing for me to produce very fast swing speeds for longer stretches. Would really recommend this frame for an improving player who is looking to bridge the gap between a larger framed racquet that provides tons of power and a smaller framed racquet that provides loads of control.
5 StarsNice light update

A big reason I chose the Head Graphene XT Radical S because of the easy spin that it creates. I play a few times a week on my ALTA team. I usually compete in mixed or menG+笻s doubles. This racquet allows me to hit deep shots with a good amount of spin. It has a huge sweet spot and a lighter, more maneuverable feel to it. I chose this version because it is a little lighter than the MP, but heavier than the Lite. I love the way my slice shots and come off this racquet. My volleys have improved dramatically since switching to this racquet. I have more feel and better placement. IG+笻ve finally been able to master my drop shot volley! My serve is very consistent and I feel confident aggressively going after both my first and second serves. IG+笻m looking forward to having a lot of success this season.
