+ Demo Racquet

Featuring HEAD's Innegra technology, the HEAD Radical Pro 170 Racquet is designed with the world's lightest high performance fiber blended with carbon composite for extreme toughness, shock absorption, and stability. As a result, vibrations from ball impact are substantially reduced while resiliency and control are increased. Accented with blue, white, and black paint plus an elegant matte finish, this racquet looks as awesome as it plays. The 4 point head-heavy balance and maneuverable swingweight make this racquet great at both power and control. The Radical Pro 170 racquet is best suited for intermediate to advanced players with a medium to fast swing.

All racquets come factory strung with a wrist cord installed. Click the Specs tab for more details.

*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.

Comments: Just received this racquet and I love it. It is extremely well balanced and hits very smooth. I played a tournament and several matches with it this far and I have been very pleased.

Comments: I have been playing with this racquet for a month, 2x a week, and have only praise to give! The power and control are magnificent. The HEAD Radical Pro 170 is worth every cent!

Comments: I've had this racquet for just over a month now and I'm in love.  Excellent power, fine control and a great price to boot.  I will likely step up to one of the Graphene models in the near future, but this racquet is a fine re-introduction to modern equipment after about a ten year break from playing.

Comments: Note that this is not a real review as I got it for a student and I only hit with it for a few minutes. Nice balance and a solid performer though it offered nothing that would make me want to switch from my Ektelon Magnum Lite; however, I could easily adapt it to my game. That being said, I doubt that any Head fan will be disappointed. The graphics are understated and it looks quite elegant.
