The Radical S, the most forgiving of the Radical series of racquets, has been updated to improve playability for players looking for easier power and playability - perfect for an ambitious all-court club player, rising intermediate or adept beginner. It really is quite versatile! With it's new vibrant orange design, it proves to be an attractive option.
The Radical S has the easiest playability and power versus the heaviest Radical Pro and heavier MP while still enabling good control on full swings.
This racquet features Head's Graphene 360+ technology, a combination of Graphene 360's energy transfer and innovative spiralfibers which delivers enhanced flex and clean impact feel. This means improved response and feel over previous iterations resulting in easier power and stability.
Unchanged from the previous edition, its 9.9 ounces (unstrung) will provide a balance of maneuverability and stability which grants enough power from the baseline for good depth. It's head-light balance enhances the maneuverability for quick cutting and agile feel for spin, volleys and fast serves.
Also unchanged from the previous edition, the head size is slightly on the bigger side of average which enables a generous sweet spot for more forgiving feel and easier power. It's dynamic string pattern means that there is a higher density of the strings in the sweet spot which translates to a greater degree of control and yet it is more forgiving when struck out of the sweet spot due to a lower density of the string bed in these areas.
The Radical S should appeal to a wide variety of players looking for a racquet to give them an easier blend of power, control and spin. As an update to players using the previous generation, the playability improvements should satisfy the desire to push your game further.

Photos used contain images of strings for illustration purposes. Adult tennis racquets are unstrung unless otherwise noted or stringing services have been selected above. Brand logo stencils are not applied by default with stringing services. If you request brand logo stencils, please note that a stencil is painted onto the strings within a brand's stencil and may wear off over time - this is how stencils are applied on tour. Depending on the string you select, the stencil paint application fullness, colour and visibility may vary.
Adult racquets generally do not come with covers. To protect your racquet, we recommend getting a racquet bag.
Product specs such as weight may vary slightly from racquet to racquet to what is advertised due to the manufacturing process.
Adult Racquets Sizing Information
To determine your grip size without using a racquet, measure from the tip of your ring finger to the major fold crease in your palm. Write down the distance to the nearest 8th of an inch. This is your standard grip size.
If you fall somewhere between the measurements, it is recommended to choose the smaller grip size as you can always build the grip size up using an overgrip (for a slight increase) or a grip build-up sleeve (for a half or full size increase). The grip measurements above factor in the pre-installed factory grip.
