The Head Youtek Graphene Radical REV is the newest and lightest racquet in the Graphene family. With the use of Graphene - the world's lightest and strongest material, the Radical REV allows for an optimal redistribution of weight from tip to grip, producing increased swingweight without sacrificing maneuverability, for more penetrating shots. The Rev is super light & super fast with optimal head speed. New dynamic 16x19 string pattern puts 8 main strings in the heart of the racquet to provide the control of a tight string pattern with the spin and forgiveness of an open pattern. Tapered 20/23/21mm beam, 9.8 oz. strung weight, 98 square inch head, standard 27 inch length allows more tennis players to feel the unique playing characteristics of the Radical. Perfect racquet for players seeking a light frame that will have an easy feel with great blend of feel & power. Graphene Radical REV can be equipped with a pro-player grommet cap for increased power and a unique feel. Available for purchase below.

I tested this racket by accident and loved it from the first swing. I'd never played a head heavy racket before because I wanted my racket to be quick around the net. This one is and has the added benefit of pulling your ground strokes through with the head heavy balance. The racket is still very light and playable. You also don't have to worry about swinging too hard because the firmness lets you take a full swing. And it looks cool too! :)

What I really like about this racquet is how fast I can move it/swing it/manipulate it to respond to all incoming shots. It also has a good feel to it in terms of doing those touch shots. It came prestrung with Prince Syn Gut Duraflex 17. Not sure I like this choice. I will try it with a good multi-filament like Wilson NXT 17 when the current string wears out.
