Head YouTek IG Radical Mid Plus Tennis Racquet

The Head YouTek IG Radical mid plus is the latest version in Head's hugely successful Radical series originally inspired by Andre Agassi. Introduces the use of lightweight Innegra fiber which in conjunction with Head carbon composite improves shock absorption and stability. Places a premium on control with a moderately thin 21.5mm beam and dense 18x20 string pattern, with a lighter feel than the Head Prestige series.

Keeping most specifications consistent with past generations of Head Radicals, the YouTek IG Radical MP offers a 98 square inch head and 11 oz. strung weight add up to a control and feel oriented stick for more advanced players.

The YouTek IG Radical also uses a DuPont Teflon grommet system that reduces friction. Less friction means maintaining more of the strings energy, and a resulting slight increase in power.

Note: Head does not include a cover with this racquet.
d3o technology "smart" material is integrated in the frame lay-up and positioned in the shaft area (where the racquet flexes the most), d3o seeks to help players maximize performance on all shots. High speed impacts lock d3o together within nanoseconds at the molecular level, stiffening the frame to provide maximum power. Conversely, on slower speed impacts, the d3o molecules absorb the impact providing softer touch for better feel.

    5 Stars Awesome racket

    I bought a pair for my friend. After first use, he told me that he played well than with his Wilson k factor. Besides, other players are suspecting the racket to be expensive due to its gorgeous look.

    5 Stars Works for me!

    I bought a used "demo" Head instinct mid plus from Midwest a couple year ago. It came pre strung with tecnifibe X1 17gauge 57lbs on the mains and whatever nylon on the crosses. I don't buy into all the jazzy materials frames are made of graphene? huh? whatever hype. But I loved the feel of the bat from the start. I got this racquet (radical mp) strung the same way but at 55lbs. It is the same weight 11oz (strung) slightly smaller 98" v.s 100"on the instinct the string bed is more open. It plays slightly lighter/better than the Instinct. Very crisp and easy to hit the ball harder because of the extreme control. Have played the mono strings on the liquid metal frames and they seem to soft and mushy I hope it holds out well. I have some older Head racquets that the frame broke for no reason, to tight? Midwest sports seems like a great place to buy! Wish I would have got the sticker on the frame with the string type and tension like the "demo" I got from them has. Overall I am super happy

    4 Stars Excellent racquet!

    This is a solid stick! I switched from the Babolat Pure Drive and I found this to be far better in regards on spin and control. This racquet plays very stable for its weight. Nothing flimsy about this one. 

    5 Stars Good Value; Nice Racquet

    I have an older model HEAD Radical Flex and was looking for a second racquet that would play somewhat similar. Took a chance on the Youtek and loved it from the start. Generates good pace and control for a mid-level player. It feels a bit stiff but this could be that I had it strung at 55 lbs. I would recommend this racquet to anyone who is a HEAD devotee!

    5 Stars excellent

    I have played with this racket for two weeks now and it is amazing. It moves quickly at net and can deliver a strong volley or a nice touch shot. Groundstrokes feel strong with the option for plenty of top spin or slice action. My serve seemed to get a little extra kick from this racket as well.

    I've played only two times. the racquet is heavy at first for me but on the second day, I thought my baseline stroke is better and my serving is also improving. I need more playing time for this racquet.

    Great racquet - good feel great response, for mid level to advanced players

    5 Stars Best Racquet ever!!

    from GA wrote (August 11, 2014):

    I love this racquet! I have only purchased the demo but I played with it once and fell in love with it so i know it will be much much better when i get a new one with my own choice of strings and tension! I would recommend this for itermediate players and up because you have to generate your own power with it but it pretty much makes enough spin to keep the ball in at a good depth! Got a lot of power, control and spin on my serves, Groundstrokes were a breeze! I was able to place the volleys anywhere and finish the point...And I could put away almost any ball at the baseline!! Great, great, great!

    5 Stars Best all-rounder

    from CA wrote (June 16, 2014):

    I switched to the Youtek IG mid+ from Wilson. Needed a more control oriented stick and this worked out the best for me. I like to hit big from the baseline. My serves have also improved ever since I switched to this stick. If you are an intermediate and higher level player and want to get a more control oriented racquet - demo the Youtek IG Mid+ and you will not be disappointed. I use the Technifibre NRG2 16 string with 51 lbs tension.

    5 Stars Great control

    If you are looking for racquet with great control, this Head YouTek IG Radical Mid Plus racquet is definitely the one for you.

    5 Stars Nice racquet

    I have always been a fan of the radical series since the days of Agassi. This is my 4th radical now and if you like the previous versions, you will still love this one. Not to mention its a great bargain.

    5 Stars Control seekers

    Have played with Microgel MP for 2+ years - head heavy. Happy from the get-go but bought the Youtek radical MP to try head-light balance. Result was as expected: slightly quicker on reflex volleys and snappier on serves. Oddly, not much change in feel or depth of ground strokes. Both models have exceptional control qualities (but despite the 18/20 string pattern) without sacrificing spin (at least in my game). As with all critiques of this stick, a fast swing and centering the ball will pay off with great feel and controlled pace and placement.

    5 Stars Control

    from MO wrote (May 20, 2014):

    I was looking for a racket with good control and accuracy yet would allow me to create pace on the ball when needed. I have been very happy with this racquets spin control. I saw immediate improvement in my serve placement as well as my ground strokes. Volleying was consistent. I look forward to getting more familiar with this racquet.

    5 Stars great control

    I have been taking group lessons for about a year. The club had the Head Radical MP that I used for a couple months. I liked it so well I purchased one here. This racquet has made a significant improvement in my game. The biggest improvement has been ball control, but I have noticed more power & better feel at the net. I have no dislikes

    5 Stars Great Racquet
