Head YouTek IG Radical Mid Plus Tennis Racquet
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.

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.
If you are looking for racquet with great control, this Head YouTek IG Radical Mid Plus racquet is definitely the one for you.
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.
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.
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.
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
I bought this Racquet for my son. He is a member of high school tennis club. He really loves this Racquet.
