The hugely versatile HEAD Graphene Radical 170 Racquet 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.

*Unstrung weight is part of the name given to this racquet by the manufacturer; all other specs are measured by Racquetball Warehouse USRSA Master Racquet Technicians on a Babolat Racquet Diagnostic Center machine. String never weighs more than 25 grams, so if there is more than a 25 gram variance between Unstrung Weight and Strung Weight then the manufacturer most likely measured the Unstrung Weight of the raw graphite frame (i.e. without grip, grommets, or paint). In addition, due to the porous nature of graphite material, manufacturers approve of a +/- 10 gram variance during the manufacturing process.
