Head MicroGel Radical Oversize Tennis Racquet

Alternate Images

The Head MicroGel Radical Oversize is the latest version of Head's hugely successful Radical series, inspired by Andre Agassi.

Head has kept most specifications consistent with the Flexpoint Radical OS, but now with a lighter static weight and the added benefit of MicroGel technology. MicroGel offers aggressive, competitive players ultimate feel, unique touch, and added stability. When combined with carbon composite fibers in the racquet head, MicroGel deforms and compresses upon ball impact, uniformly absorbing and distributing the impact load around the entire frame, creating a rock-solid feel while offering extra stability against twisting.

Note: This racquet is pre-strung with Head Sonic Pro 16 at Head's recommended tension of 57 lbs.
  • Headsize: 107 sq. in.
  • Length: 27.00 in.
  • Weight (strung): 11.00 oz.
  • Stiffness (Babolat RDC): 57
  • Balance: 13.125 in. Head Light (3pts)
  • Cross Section: 21mm Straight Beam
  • Swingweight: 318 kg*sq. cm
  • String Pattern: 18x19
  • Grip: Head HydroSorb

Purchased this racket from all the great reviews about it being arm friendly. After playing with it for about a month I can say that they are true. Have not changed a thing about my game....and still play at the same frequency (1-2) times per week....arm soreness is no where near where it used to be after a match. Could be other factors that I'm not noticing, but I'm willing to bet that this racket is helping!

Great racquet at an even better price

I used to play tennis a lot when I was in my 20s and now in my 40’s I am just starting to get back into the game. I figured that I need to upgrade from my 95 square inch head size since I haven’t played in 20ish years! I was looking for a racquet that had an oversize frame and a slightly lighter weight, with a good price point as well. I read a the reviews and this racquet had a LOT of great reviews with hardly any negative comments. I gave it a try and I have to agree with the reviewers! This racquet is incredibly comfortable, making me feel like I hadn’t skipped a day of playing. This racquet has a great balance of feel and power, with enough control that I don’t feel like I’m hitting the ball sporadically and I can place my shots pretty good as well. It gave my serve the spin and pop that I need at an older age. I was most impressed with how comfortable and versatile this frame seemed to be, especially at the net (which I am not too familiar with). I definitely recommend this racquet to any level of player looking for some more power and control.

GREAT racquet, GREAT price!!!

I've used Head racquets exclusive since I started playing in 1974, starting with the Arthur Ashe Competition. I've had just about every series Head has made but have stayed with the Radical series ever since Andre Agassi came on board. I LOVE the MicroGel Radical OS. I have a huge serve and forehand and this racquet has improved my backhand confidence. It's crisp at the net and provides plenty of power AND control off both sides. I like the fact that this racquet is "easy" on the arm/elbow. I've bought 2 thus far and plan on adding at least 1 more to my arsenal. Again, a GREAT racquet......I'm a 4.5-5.0 player.

Great racket for all levels

Like many others I made the switch to this racket to eliminate an elbow issue. I had golfer's elbow and this has done the trick. I switched to poly once my elbow felt better and I absolutely love the feel, control and power of this racket. I play at a high 4.0 or low 4.5 level.

Swithced back to Radical

I'm a senior player who's played with Head racquets for many years. For the past 2 years I've had success with the Extreme S but recently began having elbow problems, so decided to go back in time to the Microgel Radical in the OS size, having used Radical MP's for years back when I could see better. The Radical OS is a great racquet with a nice balance of control and feel with enough power and spin potential to hit freely. It comes strung with Head Sonic Pro 16 @ 57# which is OK but I'll replace with Solenco Tour Bite @ 60# for a bit more control. You can definitely feel the flex in this frame compared to the Extreme as well as additional dwell time on the stringbed (though this may be the lower tension than I normally like). Highly recommended especially at this price!

Great racquet

For those who like a racquet with nice flex and feel, this is a great racquet. It also dampens vibration very well. I hit with a lot of spin, which this racquet accommodates but it seems pretty nice on power as well.

Best Racquets ever

I hate to say it, I'm not getting any younger. This racket is saving my elbow due to the minimal vibrations, and the ability to use a long, smooth swing without the ball sailing. Nice control and touch.

I bought this racket because of the oversized head and the control it provides. As a senior who has still hits fairly hard this racket provides everything i need. The oversized head is very forgiving and solid and i can hit out and still have control. I couldnt be more pleased.

I have been playing the Radical Tour since the mid 1990's and wore it out. This MicroGel OS racket is vastly superior in every way: its sweet spot seems very large; groundstrokes are easy to control whether hit with topspin, flat, or slice; it is very manoeuvrable making volleys and service returns effortless.

This racquet was recommended by a tennis website for people who suffer from tennis elbow and other arm problems. After demo-in a couple of racquets, I decided to buy this racquet along with the recommended Wilson NXT 16 string.
