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