HEAD Graphene Radical 170 RB Racquet
HEAD Graphene Radical 170 RB Racquet
+ Demo Racquet

The hugely versatile HEAD Graphene Radical 170 is here! With the addition of the ultra-light and strong Graphene Technology, this racquet possesses the power of a 170 gram racquet while maintaining maneuverability and a soft feel. By removing the Corrugated Throat found in the previous years of HEAD frames, this Radical 170 is arguably the most flexible racquets HEAD has ever designed. Sporting a 147 swing weight and a 2 point head-heavy balance, this racquet provides power on setups, quick swings on fast rallies, and a soft feel for those delicate touch shots.

Comments: Not the power or control I expected, waiting to demo the new Pro Kennex 175 with a stiffer frame and more control.  Thankfully I demoed the Head Radical Grapfine first, TY RbW!

Comments: I demo'd this frame last week.  Although I think the Radical 170 is a great racquet, it is not as stiff as Head's Zeus 165 and Aries 175.  It still felt great, but just wasn't quite as stiff or powerful as the Zeus/Aries racquets.  I personally prefer a very stiff frame.
